Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Charlotte We offer window treatments that are recyclable or contain some recycled content in them because we believe in sustainable shutter products. Not only are Polywood® shutters a completely recyclable shutter, but they also contain up to 20% recycled Polywood content. We’re the only shutter company in Charlotte or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We show our commitment by reusing any and all materials whenever possible. We recycle water that cools down parts when they’re coming out of ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. Each year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials. When we prepare our window treatments for transportation to your home for installation, we put 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 Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paint finishes that are environmentally safe – and are even less than the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, none of our paints emit fumes. We mean it when we declare our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters do not emit dangerous gasses – so you and your loved ones can breathe easier and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Charlotte, NC If you ever decide to switch out your window treatment styles, we provide a shutter recycling program in Charlotte to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. What you have to do is simply take down the shutters yourself, and call our store manager, Neil, at 980-231-1116 to schedule a pick-up. We will come get your shutters and reuse some of their materials in future Polywood shutters. This is the case for Polywood shutters only—we are not equipped to recycle other shutter brands. With this program, it’s easy to recycle Polywood shutters. And, together, we’re assisting in keeping the environment green in Charlotte.
