Slide-Lok President Brian Strayer featured guest on Phoenix talk show Who's Building Your Future? Slide-Lok discusses advantages of using green friendly building materials

Environmentally Friendly Plywood Cabinets

Phoenix, AZ – February 12, 2008 – Slide-Lok's patented, plywood-based garage cabinets have once again been highlighted as green friendly–this time on Phoenix radio station KFNN 1510 AM, during the drive home talk show entitled, "Who's Building Your Future?" with Co-Hosts ICMT's President, Steve Cooper, and Denise van den Bossche, LEED AP.

LEED Accredited Plywood Cabinets

Spurred on by prior exposure as an environmentally friendly product on the "Alive & Well with Michelle Harris" television show in early 2007, Slide-Lok's plywood-based garage cabinets are again being praised for using a superior and more sustainable cabinet building material versus less green friendly particle board-based cabinetry.

Brian Strayer, President of Slide-Lok, stated, "Slide-Lok is proud of its long history of bringing a quality product to market while resisting the temptation to use inferior building materials like particle board in the construction of our industry leading cabinets."

The show also focused on the shift to producing structures and campuses that meet stringent LEED certification, like the new Mercedes Benz of Arrowhead in Peoria, Arizona. The new dealership will feature solar panels, restrictions on water usage and creative ways to recycle and reuse water on items, like plants, that surround the dealership.

At the core of the green friendly movement is the concept of sustainability. Examples include products that are manufactured using natural resources like wood that support the longevity of our ecological system. Denise van den Bossche, LEED Accredited Professional, explains, "By using plywood in the manufacturing process, Slide-Lok has demonstrated that they are acting socially responsible and have not turned a blind eye to our environment."
