Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Gainesville 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 fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood content. We’re the only shutter company in Gainesville or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing any and all materials whenever possible. We recycle water that cools down items when they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle 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 residence for installation, we insert reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use as little cardboard as possible 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 below the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing method, our paints don’t emit fumes. We mean it when we say our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters don’t emit harmful gasses – so you and your loved ones can relax and enjoy your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Gainesville, FL If you ever desire to change your window treatment styles, we have a shutter recycling program in Gainesville to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills.
