There are three keys ways we at innovative curtains and blinds help reduce our impact on the environment.
The first is with manufacture. A quality window coverings can manage heat and light and assist with the reduction of reliance on heating and air-conditioning, reducing electricity consumption and minimizing greenhouse emissions. Some of innovative curtains and blinds products will block out 100% of ambient light and heat.
The second is from use of better materials. To this end, our Greenvision™ fabrics are PVC-free, low-VOC, ecospecifier assessed and can also assist in the achievement of points as set by the Green Building Council of Australia.
The third is with recycling and material usage. Every process in our factory, showroom and office is governed by our strict policy & principles, which keep material use and garbage creation to a minimum and recycle wherever possible.
Avani has a unique manufacturing process that transforms recycled plastic bottles into a durable fabric fibre. The yarn is then dyed & woven into the environmentally friendly polyester sunscreen.
A number of innovative curtains and blinds products are reusable and can be recycled. Blind systems for example, are designed for disassembly with all of the components able to be stripped from the blind for other uses.
Our Sustainability Action Plan ensures that doing better by the environment is embedded in our business and that all our environmental initiatives are questioned, assessed, extended and improved year on year.
