As time goes by it is important for everyone to do their part to take care of the environment. With the growing population it can be difficult, but with even the smallest changes we can make an impact to improve the environment. It is each of our jobs to keep the earth preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Recycling and driving electric cars are great starts to changing the world, but we can do more. Worldwide events are held on April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day, but why don’t we demonstrate our support for the environment on a daily basis with eco-friendly window treatments?
Eco-friendly Window Covering Options:
Real wood blinds are a classic window treatment made from 100% North American hardwoods from certified and domestic forests where the amount of wood harvested is below the levels of tree growth. Wood blinds are an eco-friendly window covering that is beautiful while helping to preserve the environment. In addition to their eco-conscious materials, they shield incoming sunlight, reduce solar heat gain and protect your home’s décor. Wood blinds come in a variety of colors, styles, stains, and finishes to match your style. They can even be custom color-matched to your other wood trims and furnishings. Lastly, wood blinds can be easily motorized to provide added convenience.
To help conserve the environment, real wood shutters from Budget Blinds® are made of the highest grade North American hardwoods harvested through sustainable yield forest management. Shutters insulating design can also help lower your energy bills and protect your interiors from damaging UV rays.
