Origin Teak Introduces “Teakology”– A Deeper shade of Green
San Clemente, CA, February 1, 2012—

Origin Teak Works

Reclaimed Teak

Before you go shopping for kitchen cabinets at the local home store, consider custom cabinets hand made from centuries-old 100% solid recycled teak! Origin teak cabinetry uses no plywood, MDF, veneers, or formaldehyde anywhere in our products. Not only are the cabinets “green” but every project is truly a work of art.  Since its inception in 2005, Origin Teak has always used 100% recycled solid teak. But after developing The Leaf Project at Earth island Institute, and a line of eco-friendly cleaners, Jason Nedelman, President and co-founder of Origin Teak, realized that that all green products and companies must take environmental, social, and economic factors into consideration. This meant not only the materials, but also the production in the factory to the air quality in your home. The goal of the company became “cradle to cradle” responsibility for its’ products. This new completely green concept, aptly named “Teakology”, looks at the product from start to finish and does it all with a focus on “socioecological” responsibility.

Origin Teak works one-on-one with customers to create custom, unique, teak cabinetry and furniture. In the last years Origin Teak has completed work on three restaurants, two historic Ole Hanson homes in San Clemente, furniture for the Foundation Room at House of Blues in Dallas, and custom furniture and stonework for Sambazon Inc. headquarters in San Clemente to name a few.

100% Solid Wood

While the rest of the industry has been focused on creating a disposable product from less toxic plywood using wood from sustainable pulping sources, Origin Teak has been reclaiming old wooden structures and hand-crafting the finest quality custom wood products available. Because their cabinetry/case goods are built like fine furniture, they can be reused indefinitely and age wonderfully to retain the same old-world quality they had when they were built. Since it is the goal to one day eliminate or offset the entire environmental footprint of the company, Origin Teak has also initiated several environmental and social projects in Indonesia including planting 10,000 trees in 2011, and composting all byproducts of production.

To further demonstrate their social responsibility, Origin Teak is working to ensure their factories will far exceed minimum environmental standards and that their employees are treated equitably. Jason spends 2-3 months each year in Indonesia in order to personally oversee production and he is working with both the managers and employees at the factories to continually improve environmental performance and to institute programs that give the workers access to funds above and beyond salaries to secure better health care and education for the families.
