Salon Interiors, Particleboard and The Environment

Composite Panel Association, Gaithersburg, MD, USA.

Salon Interiors is now using particle board supplied by ATC Panels so we can further advance our goals of being accountable in all aspects of production and leave a cleaner footprint on the earth.

Environmentally Preferable Product LogoEnvironmentally preferable product, as defined by Federal Executive Order 13101, are “products and services (that) have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared to other products and services that serve the same purpose”. Furthermore, various states have adopted policies promoting sustainability to “reduce adverse impacts on natural habitats and species”. The Composite Panel Association (CPA) adopted this voluntary Environmentally Preferable Product Specification (EPPS) to promote the fulfillment of these goals. CPA will certify products to this EPPS within its ANSI accredited third party Grademark Certification Program.

This EPPS has been developed to provide assurance that products conforming to it have been independently certified to meet certain environmentally preferable characteristics, including fiber usage and formaldehyde emissions. Certification to these criteria assures the consumer that these products exhibit enhanced environmentally friendly characteristics.
