Formaldehyde-free cabinets

This question is not exactly Renewable Energy-related, but this forum comes closest to "Green building" questions. What are my alternatives for constructing formaldehyde-free cabinets? Exteriors will be hardwood, but what about shelving and interiors?

There are materials out there like PLam (sp?), Wheatboard and Plyboo. I have included a link to my local Green building store maybe their website will be of help to you. Also try Kirei.
Good luck!

RE: Formaldehyde-free cabinets

Columbia Wood Products (a large hardwood plywood manufacturer in the USA) now makes formaldehyde free plywood and particle board. The product is called PureBond. They have the license to this technology and so other plywood manufacturers may also be using it if they pay Columbia the fees. The idea for the "new" glue came from clams or mussels.

Buy plywood from third world nations (including China) at your own risk. Profit in these unregulated economies is more important than safety.
