You may remember The Shutter Store recently launched a special collaboration with our friends at One Tree Planted in celebration of Earth Day on the 22nd April. Our promise? For every order placed on our website during our Earth Day celebration, we would plant one tree in support of reforestation in North America.
Well, we are proud to announce that with your help 150 trees have now been planted by the community at One Tree Planted, helping us make a positive impact on the planet while delivering bespoke DIY shutters to homes across the country. One Tree Planted are a non-profit organization based in Shelborne, Vermont. They focus on reforestation and protecting habitats for biodiversity, and most of their projects work to help with restoration from forest fires and floods, in some cases creating jobs and building communities across the world, not just the USA.

Here at The Shutter Store we are committed to being environmentally responsible in all areas of our business. Our timber and vinyl materials buying policy and buying standards strive towards a planet friendly ethos. We offer a range of materials from which our shutters can be made. Whether choosing our American Polyvinyl, our Affordable Fauxwood shutters or any of our range of hardwoods, we endeavor to ensure that the materials we use do the minimum amount of harm to the environment. Purchasing timber that is sourced from forests that consciously replant is a must, and handling waste or the by products of manufacturing (such as paint) in a sensible way is always at the forefront of the work we do.
If you’re interested in installing wooden shutters
in your home, take a look at our range of Poplar and Elm hardwoods which all come in variety of colours and stains, or our more affordable fauxwood range which is our most popular choice.
