Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Houston We provide 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 content. We’re the only shutter company in Houston or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We reuse materials whenever we can. We recycle water used to cool items as they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter fragments – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. We end up recycling hundreds of tons of materials every year. When we prepare our window treatments to be transported to your home for installation, we put 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. In our manufacturing process, none of our paints give off fumes. When we say our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it. Polywood Shutters don’t emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Houston, TX If you ever desire to switch out your window treatment styles, we offer a shutter recycling program in Houston to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. All you have to do is remove the shutters on your own, and contact our store manager, Cory, at 713-853-9629 to arrange a pick-up. We will pick up your shutters and reuse them in one form or another in future Polywood shutters. This applies to Polywood shutters only—we are not equipped to recycle other shutter brands. This way, you can recycle Polywood shutters at no cost to you. And, together, we’re aiding in keeping the environment green in Houston.
