We are excited to have a green blind product like this. It is the first step made toward greening our industry. It will be interesting to see what other green blind products will develop in the coming years
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 1, 2009
Blinds Chalet announces Comfortex EcoGreen Solar Screen Shades, an environmentally window treatment that is PVC free and 100% recyclable. Offering both style and function, the roller shade is one of the first environmentally responsible window treatments available in the industry.
- PVC-free - EcoGreen fabrics contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which means there is no off-gassing which can contaminate and degrade indoor air quality.
- 100% Recyclable - All EcoGreen fabrics are completely recyclable which means the fabrics are diverted from landfills and reclaimed.
- LEED Certification-friendly - LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification assures that a building project is environmentally responsible and a healthy place to work. While no product can be LEED Certified, the EcoGreen Solar Screen Shade can contribute to an overall building project meeting Energy Performance, Material and Resource Use, and Indoor Environmental Quality, 3 of the 5 credit categories needed for LEED certification.
- Energy Efficient - EcoGreen Solar Screen Shades reduce UV rays and diffuse light, allowing you more control over indoor temperatures.
"We are excited to have a green blind product like this. It is the first step made toward greening our industry. It will be interesting to see what other green blind products will develop in the coming years," says Ron Manwaring of Blinds Chalet.
Manwaring also suggests that "green" product options aren't the only aspect of window coverings that appeals to the environmentally conscious consumer. "Purchasing a good quality window covering can also decrease the negative impact the average consumer will have on the environment. Low cost, low quality products are typically replaced within a few years and end up in landfills. High quality blinds have a longer lifespan," says Manwaring
