Decora have recognised that the issue of climate change has forced many people to consider the impact their own lifestyle has on the environment. For this reason, Decora are striving to become 'greener'.
There are many ways that people can make their homes more eco-friendly and fitting blinds is one way that they can improve their energy efficiency. Decora offer fabrics such as 'Zest' and 'Energi', which have a reflective coating allowing rooms to stay cool in the warmer summer months and keep heat in through the colder winter months. Not only will these blinds provide a stylish window covering, but it will also help people reduce the amount of money that they are spending on heating and cooling methods every year.
Constantly reviewing suppliers' methods to ensure that they are at their most efficient reflects strongly on Decora 's own procedures. All wooden venetian blinds have been ethically sourced from managed forests, as it is clear that our future depends on responsible management of the earth's natural resources. When sourcing fabrics, Decora strive to ensure that all of the fabrics adhere to environmental policies with regards to colour, design and the finishing of the fabric. In order to do this, our suppliers choose methods and chemicals that will not have any impact on the environment.
Always focusing on new ways to keep 'green', Decora source their electricity from wind turbines as an attractive alternative to non-renewable energy sources. Due to the fact that this energy supply is plentiful, renewable and produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, Decora find this the optimal way of sourcing electricity for the manufacturing of blinds.
Not only are Decora aware of their ecological commitments, but they are also conscious of their social responsibility in the local area. Taking part in the 'Play Scheme', a charitable scheme that provides a children's charity with all leftover fabric, Decora find alternative ways of recycling.
