Washed Ashore Plastic Gets new Life
Estimates suggest that 9 million tons of plastic waste dumps into the world’s oceans every year. The ocean currents, wind and waves form giant collections of this plastic which, in turn, become floating hazards and kill our sea animals.
Hunter Douglas is proud to be part of a program that has already reclaimed over 30 tons of plastic waste washed ashore. What’s more, we’ve put it to good use.
Introducing GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ Fabrics
Hunter Douglas has partnered with Bionic®, a mission driven material engineering company that has established coastal recycling infrastructure in developing nations that delivers fully traceable textiles from marine and coastal plastic. Hunter Douglas engaged with Bionic to fabricate a yarn, engineered from recovered coastal and marine plastic, to be used as the key ingredient for our new GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ screen shade fabric. The new Sea-Tex fabrics are exclusive to our Designer Screen Shades product line, and are available in five neutral tones each with a 3% openness. Designer Screen Shades are expertly crafted to provide privacy, UV protection, glare control and view-through, all while filtering sunlight.
