Way Basics, based in Irvine, CA, provides you a DIY way to have "custom" furniture. Mix and match pieces of "zBoards" -- made from 99% post-consumer recycled paper - to build your one of a kind etergie, shelving system, or desk. Check it out!

The company is called Way Basics, and the product is the zBoard. All of Way Basics furniture is composed of boards they call ‘zBoards’, which are all composed of 99% post-consumer recycled paper! I’ve recently acquired a Red and Orange cube from these guys, and I was amazed at how strong these boards are. They felt just as durable as particle board, but they were a lot lighter. I even did the impossible and stood on my cube (I weigh about 170 lbs.) and it held my weight! One of the coolest things (aside from the eco factor), is that the furniture requires zero tools for assembly. All of the boards are held by a double-sided tape from 3M. I had my doubts, but the tape is incredibly strong and held the cubes really well. The item I recommend is a 3 Spinning Cube set, which contains three cubes and two spinning plates so you can spin around the Cubes 360 degrees. But if spinning cubes aren’t your thing, Way Basics offers an entire line of products on their homepage: http://www.waybasics.com/shop/ They even offer an array of colors, ranging from natural wood grains such as Cedar and Espresso, to hot pink! You can mix and match colors, or just order in a single shade. I am also a fan of Way Basics on Facebook (they are offering weekly giveaways exclusively to Facebook fans), so be sure to check them out there. Bottom line: Way Basics is offering an incredible product for an incredibly affordable price, single Cubes start at $20. Do yourself and the environment a favor, check them out!
