It seems as though everywhere you look today, every product seems to be labeled as natural or environmentally friendly. Sadly, though, this label has not been earned. That being said, if you care about the environment and have the goal of reducing your carbon footprint, you will be happy to learn that there really are environmentally responsible interior shutters available. You simply need to know where to look, and what to look for.
Qualities of Environmental Responsible Interior Shutters
When you start shopping for interior shutters, it is important that you know what qualities make them environmentally responsible. This way, you won’t be fooled by false labels or taken advantage of, when it comes to prices. A few qualities include:
- 100 percent engineered hardwood
- Non-toxic formaldehyde-free glue
- Water-based, nontoxic and low-VOC paint
- Finishes that exceed standards set by the Ozone Transport Commission and AQMD
- Products are recyclable
- Wood used is environmentally certified
Fair enough; you may be reading through this list and thinking that this is a pretty tall order to ask for, from a shutter manufacturer, but this is what we offer here at Danmer!
