Embracing the Health and Sustainability of Window Coverings

In the pursuit of creating a healthier and more sustainable living space, every detail matters. Window coverings play a significant role in enhancing both the aesthetic and functional aspects of a home. In addition, window treatments can now also contribute to health and sustainability of a consumer’s home. In an effort to support health and sustainability in the window covering industry, Bumble Bee Blinds has partnered with two vendors who are on the leading edge of these efforts. In this blog post, we will explore the healthy and green features of Alta and Graber window coverings.

1. Eco-Friendly Materials

One of the key pillars of sustainability is the use of eco-friendly materials. Both Alta and Graber prioritize the selection of sustainable materials in the production of their window coverings. From bamboo to recycled fabrics, these brands offer a wide range of options that minimize environmental impact. By choosing window coverings made from renewable resources, consumers contribute to the reduction of deforestation and support the use of materials that have a lower carbon footprint.

2. Sustainable Manufacturing Practices

Beyond the products themselves, both Alta and Graber are committed to sustainable manufacturing practices. By minimizing waste, using efficient production methods, and implementing recycling programs, these brands strive to reduce their overall environmental impact. This commitment to sustainability extends throughout the entire lifecycle of their products, from production to installation and beyond.

3. Greenguard Certification & Microban Fabrics

Indoor air quality is a crucial factor in maintaining a healthy living environment. Both Alta and Graber window coverings have received Greenguard certification, ensuring that their products meet strict standards for low chemical emissions. This certification is particularly important for individuals who are sensitive to indoor air pollutants or those with respiratory conditions. Choosing window coverings with Greenguard certification demonstrates a commitment to creating a healthier home.

In addition, both Alta and Graber offer a variety of Microban fabrics. Microban fabrics are antimicrobial and suppress the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew for the life of the shade. This feature contributes to a cleaner living environment, prevention of odors, and reduction in product deteriation.

4. Energy Efficiency

Alta and Graber window coverings are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Properly insulated window treatments can significantly reduce the need for artificial heating and cooling, leading to lower energy consumption and decreased utility bills. By preventing heat loss in the winter and blocking out sunlight in the summer, these window coverings contribute to a more comfortable and environmentally responsible home.

5. Motorization Options

Alta and Graber recognize the importance of convenience and have integrated cutting-edge technology into their window covering options. Motorized blinds and shades not only provide a modern and sleek appearance but also offer increased energy efficiency. By allowing users to schedule and automate the opening and closing of window coverings, motorization helps optimize natural light and temperature, reducing the reliance on artificial lighting and heating.

With a focus on eco-friendly materials, energy efficiency, Greenguard certification, motorization options, and sustainable manufacturing practices, we provide consumers with the opportunity to make choices that positively impact both their homes and the planet.
