Ecoboard
Nobo Ecoboards are a new range of environmentally friendly boards, that have been produced entirely from materials which are non-toxic, sustainable, and designed to be recycled by the consumer rather than ending up as waste in a landfill.

And because EcoBoards are "designed for disassembly’, when you come to recycling your Nobo Ecoboard, just follow the 3 simple steps on the reverse of the board to separate and recycle all the board elements with ease.

Until then, this stylish, contemporary range of boards will look great in any environment, at home or in the office! C2C* Accredited.

Cradle to Cradle Certification is awarded by MBDC (www.mbdc.com) and provides companies with a means to tangibly, credibly measure achievement in environmentally-intelligent design and helps customers purchase and specify products that are pursuing a broader definition of quality.

This means using environmentally safe and healthy materials; design for material reutilization, such as recycling or composting; the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency; efficient use of water, and maximum water quality associated with production; and instituting strategies for social responsibility.
