New Sea-TexTM Screen Shades Made from Ocean Plastic


 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.


 Hunter Douglas has partnered with Bionic®, a material-engineering company that collects washed-ashore plastic and reinvents it into yarn. That yarn is now used as a key component in our new, one-of-a-kind GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ fabrics. 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.

Our ocean is our future, help us to protect it.
