We Care About the Environment
Green is more than just a color choice
Central to Ampersand’s mission is to ensure that our products do not harm the environment or the artists who use them. Both our domestic and imported panels are made from FSC certified forest products that promote sustainable forests. FSC certification is considered the most effective environmental standard for the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water.
Eco-friendly, artist safe
Ampersand uses true high density hardboard made from US-grown renewable and FSC Certified Aspen wood fibers. Ampersand brand Hardbord is made without formaldehyde or harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) unlike other hardboards and MDF boards.
In addition, we routinely test the raw materials we use to ensure artists safety and consistency in quality. No harmful chemicals used, no dangerous emissions for artists. A smart choice!
