Consumers have shown an increased interest in environmentally friendly products

Blinds Chalet announces 30% off all environmentally friendly window treatments. In order to encourage consumers to think ‘green,’ Blinds Chalet details the benefits of eco-friendly blinds and offers a 30% off incentive for consumers to buy now.
There are several different ways for homeowners to incorporate environmentally friendly or eco-friendly window treatments into their home design. Options include insulating double cell blinds, bamboo shades and blinds and EcoGreen Roller and Solar Shades. The benefits of each are as follows:
Double Cell Shades offer insulation against the cold though the unique sidetrack system, which insulates sides as well as the top and bottom of the shades. Blinds Chalet offers both the EnergyTrack and Comfortrack lines of double cell shades. These window treatments are up to five times more effective at keeping cold out than a single pane window. There is also a foam seal between the headrail and the top of the window to minimize heat loss and help save energy. Both lines of window treatments qualify for a federal tax credit for energy efficiency.
Bamboo Shades come in a variety of styles to suit different interior decoration. The Tavarua line of bamboo shades offers Woven Wood Shades, Sliding Panels, Roller Shades and Ring Drapery. Bamboo is a renewable resource, which protects slow growing forests from being harvested. Bamboo literally grows like a weed and grows in virtually any climate. Because bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource, consumers know their home furnishings are gentle on the earth.
EcoGreen Roller and Solar Shades are made from environmentally friendly fabrics. On the practical side they block UV rays and insulate against heat while preserving views. On the environmental side, they are PVC-free, meaning they contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They are 100% recyclable, which means they keep landfills free and preserve the earth’s resources. They are also LEED Certification-friendly. EcoGreen fabrics help toward the achievement of LEED certification by contributing towards Energy Performance, Material and Resource Use and Indoor Environmental Quality.
“Consumers have shown an increased interest in environmentally friendly products,” says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet. “Our goal is to give our customers a selection of styles, colors and materials to choose from. It’s important people know they can combine style with earth-friendly window treatments.”
