Met the rest of the Green Building Council today at the Home Building Association to discuss the upcoming fundraiser. The Glen Carbon Bike Tour in September is designed to raise funds to support the GBC. Our group is committed to educating our community about the newest green building products and practices available to homeowners and homebuilders. We commonly feature Hunter Douglas products in these meetings as this manufacturer provides a variety of low VOC shade materials, energy efficient Architella shades with a government approved Energy Star rating, and woven wood shades made with rapidly renewable resources.
Looking for more Green Window Treatments? Consider beautiful ADO sheers. These machine washable sheers are available in a variety of rich colors and materials that do not require dry cleaning chemicals to maintain. Simply wash these sheers on a gentle setting in your home, spin out and hang damp……year after year after year.
Organic cottons, organic wools and natural bamboo fabrics are becoming more readily available every year. Call today to for a free consultation and learn about the different “green” characteristics of our custom window treatments and how they can best be used to improve the energy effiency of your home.
