Plantation Shutters Ltd deeply cares about the global environment and strongly believe in the importance of supporting sustainable manufacturing practices. We always use window covering products which reduce our overall environmental impact and help to create a healthy and safe home for your family.
But how are we doing this? Here are just a few examples.
Our manufacturer respect and support responsible forest management and are committed to producing quality shutters. All their wood suppliers are thoroughly inspected to ensure they maintain a legal and sustainable chain of custody for all wood inputs. Nien Made Enterprise Co Ltd (Our Shutter Manufacturer) hold the world recognised FSC certificate for responsible forest management (Certificate No. DNV-COC-000195).
Making Products Safe for You and Your Family
Plantation Shutters Ltd recognises the importance of using products that are safe for your family and the environment. No harmful substances are added in our products during the manufacturing processes. It is our goal to make use of sustainable, non-toxic and recyclable materials. Our manufacturer has stringent requirements and standards for the production processes, including the strict management of upstream supply chain procurement. All raw materials must comply with legal regulations and requirements for the contents of 8 major heavy metals when making purchases.
All suppliers of raw materials must provide the latest test reports every 3 months to check on the health, safety and quality of our products at the source. All our raw materials have extremely low or nil VOC’s, heavy metals and formaldehyde emissions as well as no added harmful chemicals. As a final check to give our clients the peace of mind that our shutter products have all been tested and approved under the European REACH standards.
We are also conscious about packaging and the recycling of packaging. The majority of our packaging is made from cardboard and recycled by CS Recycling. At the end of each day we maliciously bail up all of our used cardboard and it is collected weekly and sent to the recycling depot in Potters Bar. Once compressed and re-bailed it is then sent to mills and reprocesses on the UK, Europe and around the world.
