ESSEX JUNCTION, VT (May 12,2009)- EcoSmart Insulating Shades, the pioneering producer of customized window treatments, is proud to announce the GreenGuard and OekoTex certification of its Green fabric line.
Three of EcoSmart Roller Shade’s fabrics have earned GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality Certified and the GreenGuard Children & Schools certification from the GreenGuard Environmental Institute as well as Oeko-Tex certification. Both the GreenGuard Certification Program and the Oeko-Tex Program are industry-independent, third party testing programs.
GreenGuard Certification is a tool for architects, designers, product specifiers, and purchasing organizations wanting to locate, specify, and purchase off-the-shelf, low-emitting products for indoor environments.
OekoTex Textiles, which are awarded the certificate, are free of concentrations of harmful substances that are detrimental to health.
“Here at EcoSmart we are constantly trying to find ways to help consumers marry aesthetic needs with environmental concerns.” Explains Kelly Conklin, Manager, “A consumer does not need to settle on unattractive window treatments just because they care for their environment. They can certainly have both and our green fabric line is proof of that.” Customers can go to EcoSmartRollerShades.com for color samples, quotes, design ideas and more.
