I am so pleased to have gotten this shelf. Its one of those small things that make a huge difference in your home AND in your life. Yes, its that good. Taking away just that small bit of clutter behind my sink makes me feel so much better. Those of you who have ever "minimized" will know what I'm talking about.
I was initially interested in Core Bamboo both because of their commitment to social responsibility and because Bamboo is a 100% renewable resource that doesn't require re-planting, extensive irrigation, pesticides or fertilizer in to produce it.
They have really taken an interest in sustainability and that is so important these days as we continue to use up our Earth's resources.
The shelf came quickly and with awesome service, just fold it out it to set it up, you really couldn't ask for more. Its very roomy and makes cleaning up after doing the dishes SO easy. I don't have to move everything out of the way anymore just to clean up the sprayed water. Plus, it looks fantastic! I am now inspired to re-do this whole area (yes, I will most likely blog about it).
Here's a little more about this fantastic company:
