We all use them but do you ever wonder where those cutting boards are made?  Well, Zach found one spot that makes some of the sturdiest and aesthetically pleasing cutting boards on the east coast.

The Philadelphia Block and Board company specializes in creating cutting boards, they use Pennsylvania Cherry and Walnut trees to make these one of a kind boards.  They utilize local lumber companies to cultivate the community economy and support local business.  While focusing on supporting the local economy, Philadelphia Block and Board also aims to help the local environment by working to reduce our carbon foot print through practicing Eco-friendly procedures.  On average the company produces approximately 400 boards each week!

Each cutting board is handled by one person from start to finish, making this a personal process — after all, who wouldn’t want a cutting board made with care?
