Loaded question! The pros are that trees are not cut down and that the material will last longer then real wood.

The con's are that they are plastic material and that comes from oil. The fact that it is not real wood also means that there is no CO2 sink from the use of that board.

Bottom line is probably not real positive or negative affect. The positive side of lasting much longer is the reason I would tend to go with them. Keep them away from animals that crib or chew wood though!
