Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Austin We carry window treatments that are recyclable or contain some recycled content in them because we believe in sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a completely recyclable shutter, but they are also comprised of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Austin or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing materials whenever it’s feasible. We recycle water used to cool components as they come out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. We recycle hundreds of tons of materials each year. When we package our window treatments for transportation to your home for installation, we insert reusable corner pieces on the sides of the 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 paints that are environmentally safe – and are even less than the accepted volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, none of our paints give off fumes. We mean it when we claim our paints aren’t toxic. Polywood Shutters do not emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and enjoy your window treatments.
