Sustainability & Environmental Care

home   ›   about   ›   Sustainability & Environmental Care

At Mr Blinds, we recognize the importance of sustainability and environmental care in everything we do. As a company, we are dedicated not only to providing happy and healthy homes for our customers, but also to preserving the natural environment for future generations. We firmly believe that "business as usual" is not an option, and are committed to continuously exploring opportunities to improve our operations in terms of efficiency and environmental impact.

In-home consultants drive hybrid vehicles

One of the ways in which we minimize our environmental footprint is through the use of hybrid electric vehicles for our in-home consultant team. As these individuals spend a significant amount of time on the road, it is crucial that we take steps to reduce the emissions associated with their travel. Hybrid electric vehicles are a key solution in this regard, as they utilize both electric and petrol engines to power the vehicle, which results in increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Installers’ vans have low-emission technology

Similarly, our installation vans are equipped with low-emission technology, such as Diesel Exhaust Fluid, which helps to reduce toxic emissions and comply with the latest Euro 5 emissions standards. This fluid is automatically injected into the vehicle’s exhaust system, where it converts harmful NOx exhaust gases into harmless nitrogen and water. Additionally, these vehicles are programmed to shut off when idling for extended periods, which is particularly useful in traffic-heavy areas such as Auckland.

We also monitor and address wasteful driving behaviours among our drivers, such as speeding and harsh acceleration, and regularly remind our drivers to be conscious of their driving habits.

Manufacturing and Recycling processes

In our manufacturing and recycling processes, we maintain a high standard of cleanliness and order in our state-of-the-art facilities. All waste materials are sorted and disposed of in our numerous recycle bins. Our facilities have been audited and found to be effectively managing factory waste, and we have taken additional steps to reduce waste, such as separating kitchen waste and taking turns recycling materials at home. Additionally, we have implemented a program to reduce fabric waste during the production of our blinds. This program may not be financially logical, but we view it holistically. Reducing fabric waste going to landfills makes up for the increased cost of managing the program.

Our fabric range & more

Our fabric range also includes GREENGUARD-certified, PVC-free, and lead-free options, ensuring that our products are healthier for homes and workplaces. In our move to new premises, we took the opportunity to make improvements to our environmental impact by installing energy-efficient systems and appliances, and identifying and repairing water leaks, in order to reduce our energy consumption and water usage.

Overall, at Mr Blinds, we are committed to implementing sustainable practices throughout our entire operations and to continuously working to minimize our environmental impact.

GREENGUARD Certification

Our range includes products that have been certified as having low chemical emissions and no harmful substances, with Greenguard and Lead-Free certifications.

"Products that have achieved GREENGUARD Certification are scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous third-party chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure." - Learn more at UL.com

"Excellent product and excellent service. Very happy customer."
