This is an eco-friendly product - made from sustainable Malaysian oak (a.k.a. rubberwood) from a renewable plantation source that does not contribute to deforestation. Rubberwood is used for rubber before the wood is harvested making the wood almost a byproduct of another industry - this makes the wood an extra environmentally friendly choice as well as a solid choice for furniture making.
Also, this item uses low-VOC finishes. An excellent choice for an eco-conscious family!
