Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Cincinnati We offer window treatments having some recycled content or are recyclable because we want to offer you sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also comprised of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Cincinnati or even America that does that. Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We aim for reusing any and all materials whenever we can. We recycle water that cools down parts when they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter fragments – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. We recycle hundreds of tons of materials each year. When we package our window treatments to be transported to your home for installation, we place reusable corner pieces on the edges of louvers and use the least amount of cardboard to package the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters The patented paint finishes we apply to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, our paints don’t emit fumes. We mean it when we declare our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters do not emit dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easier and enjoy your window treatments.
