Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Colorado Springs We carry window treatments having some recycled content or are recyclable because we believe in 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 Colorado Springs or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool items as they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter pieces – 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 to be transported to your house for installation, we place 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 The patented paint finishes we adhere to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the accepted volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, our paints don’t give off fumes. When we claim our paints are safe, we mean it. Polywood Shutters don’t give off dangerous gasses – so you and your loved ones can relax and enjoy your window treatments.
