Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In New York City We offer window treatments having some recycled content or are recyclable because we believe in providing you with sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a completely recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood content. We’re the only shutter company in New York City or even America that does that. Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing our materials whenever possible. We recycle water that cools down parts when they come out of ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter fragments – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. Each year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials. When we prepare our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we insert reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use minimal cardboard to pack up the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters The patented paint finishes we apply to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even below the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing method, none of our paints emit fumes. We mean it when we declare our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters do not emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can relax and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in New York City, NY If you ever desire to switch out your window treatment styles, we have a shutter recycling program in New York City to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills.
