How are Plantation Shutters Sustainable?

Here at Plantation Shutters we are incredibly conscious about the environment and ensure we recycle and reuse where possible. We feel this is important as we are a big company and want to do our part in not only making homes better but also the environment.

Thanks to you, we are very busy measuring for and fitting our shutters in homes all over London and South East England. The volume of shutters we are fitting are increasing each year. Each panel is packaged into cardboard boxes, so the amount of cardboard we collect each day is enormous. In order for us to manage all of these boxes efficiently, responsibly and sustainably we have invested in a cardboard bailing machine to flatten and bail all of the boxes together to then be recycled.  

Our manufacturer, Nien Made Enterprise Co Ltd respect and support the responsibility to forest management. They have teamed up with the Solomon Island Government with the mission to replenish the forest. Not only do they ensure we follow the best practices in responsible sourcing but most importantly, it generates many jobs for the locals. Nien Made also ensure all of their wood is thoroughly inspected in order to maintain a legal and sustainable chain of custody. Visit our manufacturer page to find out more.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
