We wanted to find the best eco-friendly storage cubes on the market, so we took our time looking around. Behold, here they are!!

These cubes, with their simple design are not only eco-friendly (made from 99% post consumer products!) but they are really durable and super stylish too. An excellent home organizer for modern living.

These storage cubes are Way Basic's most basic creation. Truly modular in every sense of the word, there are endless configurations and possibilities for the design guru with these storage cubes. Each cube is separate from each other so you can satisfy your design itch when you feel like changing things up a bit. Stack them side to side, on top of each other or get creative and build a pyramid and ladder design. Mix and match colors or just keep it simple with a single shade. Check out the additional images for ideas.

These cubes come with industrial-strength double-sided adhesive so you just need to peel off the backing and stick the pieces together. It’s recommended that they set overnight before you set books or other items on top of them.

* Cubes are sold individually. Way Basics spent 10 years getting their furniture just right. And right they are. Made totally from recycled paper, these Cubes are 62 percent lighter than particle board and they’re 100 percent recyclable when you’re done with them - how cool is that? Note: cheap particle board is a major component in landfills.

Their versatility is great. For instance, use them as a cozy bench, a storage bench, a TV console, or as shelves. Get some bright ones to add cheer to any room.  Stack & arrange multiple Cubes to create the perfect storage solution. Use product as seen in images, not on back or side.

Outside: Depth 11.3" | Width 13.4" | Height 12.6

Here's why Way Basics Cubes are the best:

- They are formaldehyde and VOC free which means they are safe for you and your family. Did you know that almost all furniture (yes, children's furniture too) contains formaldehyde and VOCs? For a a definition of VOC, see below.
- They test negative for any BPA. Receipts are NOT among the papers used.
- Trees are saved! They are made from 99% recycled paper board.
- Simple and easy assembly, no tools or hardware needed.
- Sustainably made from zBoard - recycled paper and completely recyclable.
- Water resistant.
- Cubes are made to congregate and coordinate with other cubes - stack them or put 'em next to each other to create the design you need.
- Includes white backer board (required for assembly)
- Super strong - they can hold up to 50 pounds.
- Safe - Zero Formaldehyde or VOCs

The people behind Way Basics want you to be safe and live the healthiest life possible. You can rest assured that their products aren't polluting the air inside your home.

What are VOC's? They are chemicals that become a gas at room temperature. Products made with formaldehyde will release the gas into the air. This is called off-gassing. If high concentrations of formaldehyde are off-gassed and breathed in, it could cause health problems. There is no formaldehyde in Way Basic products. They also use a water-based glue that is completely environmentally friendly, and recyclable too.

Way Basics' zBoards are made almost entirely (99%) from post-consumer recycled paper, and do not consume additional natural resources like trees and the enormous amounts of water needed to make virgin paper. While very strong, paper zBoards are made from the lightest form of wood byproduct. Way Basics' patented, environmentally sound manufacturing process turns this post-consumer recycled paper into superbly strong boards that weigh 62% less than particle board with unmatched quality and durability. zBoards are the wave of the future thanks to the basic principles of being simple, fun, practical, and made from one of the simplest materials ever - paper.

As founding members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, a coalition united to promote environmentally healthy practices in the industry, Way Basics is helping consumers identify good furniture choices. They also strive to offset their company carbon emissions by being a carbon neutral brand. Way Basics' patented material is the safer, smarter, lighter, healthier alternative to particle board and MDF.

5 of 5 Great Value December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ed from Edmonton  
I live in a (high ceiling) loft and it's very easy to get caught up in a traditional look when trying to decide on the right decor. Well, I thankfully stumbled on these gems while surfing the internet and could not be more happier with how they turned out. They're very easy to assemble and quite sturdy despite the simple engineering. They add an amazing amount of color and non-traditional balance to the main room and are conversation pieces whenever I have visitors over. In addition, Lili at My Little Green Shop is really great to deal with. She listened to all my questions (and I had many) and made sure that I was satisfied with the outcome. I definitely recommend her and her shop and will not hesitate to do business with her in the future.

5 of 5 better than P_K October 21, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Toronto, ON Canada  
This is 3 years later and we still have the cubes and our DD still uses them for her books and toys.  They are sturdy if you are not rough with them.

We splurged in the summer and bought a high end brand that's supposed to conform to the California standards and the off gassing is horrible.  The WB cubes are so much better!

4 of 5 Useful! March 25, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
All kinds of uses for these. I have them next to my daughter's Hape kitchen for "counter space" and storage for the toy food etc. I'm sure they'll get re-purposed endlessly. I like that they are light, not like pressboard. And no off-gassing!
