Window treatment manufacturers are increasing their focus on providing eco friendly blinds and shades and making their operations as green as possible. We have identified these particular products as especially "green" based on material content, recycling potential or green certifications.
Material content such as bamboo, reeds, and jute comprise the majority of eco friendly shades on the market today. They are popular not only because they are kind to the environment, but because they offer an earthy, natural look that many people prefer. Woven woods are a term used to describe a category of eco friendly blinds and shades, and they refer to shades made with natural materials.
GreenGuard eco friendly blinds and shades have been certified by an environmental institute (GEI) to be fabrics that are defined as low-chemical and particle emitting. These products mean safer indoor air quality for your home and less toxins for the environment. Comfortex offers shades made with their EcoGreen environmentally responsible fabrics. These shade fabrics are PVC -free, 100% Recyclable, and LEED Certification Friendly, so they can be used as eco friendly window treatments in both residential and commercial settings. Certain eco friendly blinds such as some faux wood blinds, are made from specially formulated recycled materials that can be recycled again when it's time to redecorate. Many people like this option, as it reduces waste and landfill use.
Eco-friendly window treatments also include those that provide energy saving features, such as insulating cellular shades. Please visit our energy efficient products page for more information about money saving blinds and shades.
While more and more of the materials used to make and ship your new blinds and shades are made from recycled materials, you can also help to keep the cycle going by recycling the cardboard and other packing materials once you receive your blinds. And by purchasing products that are specifically designed to be environmentally friendly, you are helping to encourage the expansion of these types of window treatments and a "green" attitude in the window coverings industry. And, when you have selected your blinds, you can return your sample swatches to us so we can use them again, or share your selections with friends and neighbors.
