Continuously examining and upgrading our eco-friendly manufacturing processes is a charge that Springs Window Fashions takes very
seriously and the numbers truly speak for themselves:
43 million pounds of industrial waste generated in our Middleton facility have been recycled and
diverted from landfills over the past 10 years.
90 million gallons of water are saved every year due to the installation of a closed-loop water
cooling system for plastics manufacturing at Middleton.
More than 4,500 tons of sawdust are recycled annually in a "waste to energy" program at our Grayling
More than 99 percent of our total sawdust is transformed into energy to fire the kilns and heat the
factory - or are converted to wood stove pellets.
- A 71 percent reduction in airborne emissions has occurred in Middleton since 2000. Exhaust air
scrubbers have been added at this facility to reduce VOCs by 52 percent.
- A minimum of 44 percent of post-consumer recycled material is included in the packaging of all
Springs Window Fashions' products. Each package is carefully engineered and tested to minimize the use
of materials without sacrificing the integrity of the product.
100 percent of packaging materials are able to be recycled (according to a recent study conducted
by the University of Wisconsin at Madison).
