Now, it's not that crazy to assume that most people aren't familiar with eco-friendly plantation shutters. With this "theory" in mind, I came up with several key points about buying a green shutter. The whole green movement has become an increasingly popular movement and businesses around the world are striving to use more environmentally friendly products and services.
In order to understand why companies offer this type of shutter, it is important to understand why the product was designed. So what does “going green” mean? In essence, going green is a global movement with one goal in mind; to help preserve the environment. There are many different approaches a person can 'go green', but they are all equally effective. The first is to reduce waste and reuse items before throwing them away. Don't worry; I'm not suggesting you reuse towels and cotton balls. I suggest that, for example, things like refilling used water bottles rather than opening new bottles each time can be a form of contribution. Another way to help is to recycle. While many people conscientiously practice recycling habits, there are still millions who do not.
What are ecological plantation shutters? From manufacturing to shipping, it is a completely ecological product. They do not use packaging materials and do not use volatile organic compounds in paints. Waste, dust and wood that do not meet quality standards during the manufacture of these shutters are also kept and sold to soil amendment processors, manufacturers and composters. They are also made with real wood from trees like American lime, which are trees that grow faster than they are eaten.
Why use them? This answer is simple after looking at the benefits. First of all, are you aware of the serious health risks that vinyl or medium density fiberboard (MDF) can have on a person? As an example, formaldehyde is a chemical used in these types of materials and can agitate asthma, mucous membranes, lung problems and can even cause contact dermatitis. Not to mention that this chemical is a recognized carcinogen. Shutters from an eco-friendly plantation contain no toxic chemicals and are even painted with NO VOC water-based paints.
Who already uses them? You! Well, hopefully someday. If environmentalists were successful, everyone would take the step to transform their home into an overall safer and more natural living space. From solar power to eco-friendly plantation shutters, we are all one step closer to living in a "cleaner, greener" world.
