Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Boston We carry window treatments that are recyclable or contain some recycled material in them because we believe in providing you with sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood content. No other shutter company in Boston – or the US – does that. Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We reuse our materials whenever possible. We recycle water that cools down items as they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging materials. 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 home for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use the least amount of cardboard to box 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 less than the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing method, our paints don’t give off fumes. When we claim our paints are safe, we mean it. Polywood Shutters don’t emit dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and enjoy your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Boston, MA If you ever decide to change your window treatment styles, we have a shutter recycling program in Boston to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. You simply have to take down the shutters on your own, and contact our store manager, Holly, at 781-352-2205 to set up a pick-up. We will come get your shutters and reuse them in one form or another in future Polywood shutters. This applies to Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for 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 Boston.
