A growing number of consumers are becoming environmentally conscious and at the same time, looking for ways to minimize their carbon footprint. To begin the process of adopting a greener lifestyle, Budget Blinds recommends starting in your home. A sometimes overlooked way of increasing the sustainability of your home is by installing eco-friendly window coverings in every room. Budget Blinds offers a wide assortment of window coverings made from recycled or renewable resources including woven woods, cotton, wool, hardwoods, sea grass and composite wood. All of the wood used to make our shutters, blinds and shades comes from self sustaining forests to help prevent gradual depletion of our natural resources. Plus, the packaging in which your beautiful window coverings arrive is made from recycled materials because of our focus on working with manufacturing partners that promote and embrace eco-friendly production methods.

It’s important to note that the Department of Energy reported that heating and cooling costs account for nearly 56% of the total monthly energy use in a typical household. Although this is a very high amount that can significantly impact your finances, the good news is Budget Blinds’ green window coverings also act as a layer of insulation over your windows. They essentially help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, reducing your energy costs and carbon footprint.

Installing a combination of energy efficient and environmentally friendly window coverings in your home is a sure way to a greener future for you and your family.
