Green Design

Creative Kitchens and AyA Kitchens and Baths are committed to environmental responsibility. With the ever pressing concern for our environment and future generations, AyA Kitchens and Baths is furthering their commitment to the world in which we live in with the official launch of EVO™ the leading component of AyA’s Green Design 2.0 initiative, FSC certified by the SmartWood Program of the Rainforest Alliance. Throughout its business practices AyA Kitchens is continually striving to surpass environmental and health standards and help their customers create healthier environments, whether renovating a home or building LEED certified developments. AyA Kitchens and Baths is proud to announce that their standard line of cabinetry has achieved certification from the KCMA Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP).

 

AyA launched its Green Design initiative in early 2007 with a premium line of no added urea-formaldehyde plywood cabinets. In 2008 AyA launched EVO™ an extremely affordable "no" emission alternative to its certified low emission standard line of FSC Certified particle board cabinets. All EVO™ cabinets are made with only EPP certified (Environmentally Preferable Product) 100% post industrial wood fiber particle board. AyA’s commitment to healthy environments also includes the use of only low HAPS (hazardous air pollutants) finishes and an exclusive UV cured top coat finish.

 

Both AyA’s standard line of cabinets as well as its new EVO™ line of no-added urea formaldehyde cabinets are made from 100% recycled EPP certified (Environmentally Preferable Product) 100% post industrial wood fiber particleboard. AyA’s own recycling and waste reduction programs are cutting edge in the kitchen industry. AyA uses the latest computerized technology to optimize material utilization to keep waste to a minimum. Whatever waste is produced is extensively recycled and AyA has initiated a company wide energy conservation initiative with the goal of ongoing reductions of its carbon footprint.

 

AyA’s commitment to the environment is further demonstrated by the fact that EVO™ has achieved certification by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). FSC is an international organization that brings people together to find solutions which promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests. Forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes.

 

AyA is a proud member of the Canadian Green Building Council. All EVO™ cabinetry is eligible for Canada and U.S Green Building Council LEED points in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System.

 

AyA is committed to providing a quality product in a manner that ensures a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, contributes to a safe and healthy home for our customers and AyA prides itself in being an active member of its community. AyA has partnered with school woodworking programs by providing excess wood materials for student projects. AyA has been an active supporter of Habitat for Humanity and other community based initiatives.
