Renewable and Sustainable

At John Boos, we are committed to the preservation and protection of our environment as well as the enrichment of our communities.

An integral part of our business practice, we take every step to ensure we follow environmentally responsible and sustainable manufacturing processes. We’re a long-standing member of the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA). As a NHLA member, we’re required to practice sustainable forestry and sound forest management.

A Walk through Our Woods

We stop at nothing when it comes to crafting the finest wooden kitchen products on the market, but that’s only the beginning of what sets John Boos apart. By using renewable, sustainable North American hardwoods such as North American Hard Rock Maple, American Cherry, American Black Walnut, and Appalachian Red Oak, we can help keep our planet (and our products) beautiful, vibrant and resourceful for generations to come.

“Environmental stewardship and longstanding waste management concerns magnify the wisdom of choosing the quality, durability, strength and natural beauty of American hardwood products that, coupled with American craftsmanship, will endure for generations.”
