Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Chicago We offer window treatments that are recyclable or have some recycled material in them because we believe in providing you with sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a completely recyclable shutter, but they also contain up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Chicago or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing our materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool items when they’re coming out of ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter pieces – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. We recycle hundreds of tons of materials every year. When we package our window treatments for transportation to your house for installation, we place reusable corner pieces on the edges of louvers and use the least amount of cardboard to box up the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paint finishes that are environmentally safe – and are even below the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, none of our paints emit fumes. We mean it when we claim our paints aren’t toxic. Polywood Shutters do not give off dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Chicago, IL If you ever decide to switch your window treatment styles, we offer a shutter recycling program in Chicago to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills.
