Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Hartford We carry window treatments containing some recycled material or are recyclable because we believe in providing you with sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a fully recyclable shutter, but they also contain up to 20% recycled Polywood content. We’re the only shutter company in Hartford or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We reuse materials whenever we can. We recycle water that cools down components when they come out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. We end up recycling hundreds of tons of materials every year. When we package our window treatments for transportation to your home for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use as little cardboard as possible to pack 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 lower than the accepted volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, our paints don’t emit fumes. When we claim our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it. Polywood Shutters don’t emit dangerous gasses – so you and your family can relax and savor your window treatments.
