Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In San Jose We carry window treatments containing some recycled content or are recyclable because we want to offer you sustainable shutter products. Not only are Polywood® shutters a completely recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood content. We’re the only shutter company in San Jose or even America that does that. Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We reuse our materials whenever we can. We recycle water that cools down components as they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – 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 edges of louvers and use the least amount of cardboard to box up the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters The patented paint finishes we adhere to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing method, our paints don’t emit fumes. When we say our paints are safe, we mean it. Polywood Shutters do not give off dangerous gasses – so you and your household can relax and savor your window treatments.
