Are you looking to become more sustainable at home? If so, have you considered using Eco Recycled Fabrics for your blinds? Many people would love to have a greener home, and sustainable design has never been more critical. One of our leading suppliers, Eclipse Blinds, has recently introduced Eco Recycled Fabrics into their extensive range and has launched new eco patterns. But first, why go eco?
What are Eco Recycled Fabrics made from?
Using PET yarns, Eclipse Blinds is helping to close the gap between raw materials and recycling. PET is a plastic resin used in millions of consumer products (along with food/beverage packaging). Derived from post-consumer recycled PET bottles, and the bottles go through a lengthy process to create new yarns.
What are the benefits of PET?
Apart from the fact that we can help reduce waste, PET has many advantages, including:
- Reducing carbon footprint
- Reducing energy consumption and water consumption
- Repurposes waste
- PET yarn is versatile, giving a high-value product

Other options to be sustainable at home
We’ve mentioned before that shutters are a great option to regulate heat at home. They look impressive, they are a practical design, and they are timeless in design. As we move into summer, shutters are also beneficial for light control, designed for privacy.
Most of us will opt for blackout blinds to keep the sun out on those beautiful summer mornings, but they are beneficial every season. Blackout blinds are a good choice if you are looking for energy-saving qualities, which are crucial to everyone at the moment.
