Ocean Waste

The world’s oceans have become a vast dumping ground for plastics, which, in winds and ocean currents, collect to become giant floating death traps for ocean life such as sea turtles, whales, and dolphins. To help ensure the sustainability of our oceans and the sea animals they house for generations to come, Hunter Douglas identified a partner that could simultaneously create a new breed of fabric while cleaning up the oceans’ mess.

GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ Fabrics

Bionic® is a mission-driven materials-engineering company that has developed programs for coastal recycling in developing countries. Through the recycling efforts, they’ve developed ways to turn ocean trash plastics into sustainable fabrics. Hunter Douglas asked Bionics to create a yarn from those wastes—that yarn is the key building block for the new GreenScreen Sea-Tex fabrics which are exclusively used for Designer Screen Shades. They come in five neutral tones in 3% openness.

About Designer Screen Shades

Designer Screen Shades help block harmful UV rays, which helps preserve your furniture and flooring. Plus, they provide privacy, view-through, and glare control while filtering natural sunlight. The openness level of screen shades affects the amount of light and privacy the shade provides. A 1% openness level, for example, provides a more obscured view, while a 5% openness level allows more light and a clearer view. The lower the percentage value, the tighter the weave. The openness value of your screen shade won’t affect its style.


Innovation drives Hunter Douglas by thinking of new ways to solve challenges through creating new and proprietary window coverings. Our Hunter Douglas window products add unique luxury and style to any room while also providing advanced solutions to everyday needs, such as managing light, insulating the window, child safety, sound absorption, motorization technology, and much more.

PowerView Motorization Is a Must-Have!

PowerView Motorization allows you to operate and program your shades to open and close when you want—even when you aren’t home to create the perfect room environment—morning, noon, and night. Use the PowerView app on your smartphone or tablet to position your shades exactly where you want them. There is also the PowerView® Pebble®, a modern take on the remote control that has incredible range. No longer for just convenience, it opens a whole new world of functionality, privacy, and safety for your home.
