In selecting an awning, screen or fabric cover, we urge you to be ecologically responsible and invest in high-quality products that can be recovered or refurbished. Doing so saves you money in the long run because the products wear well and last longer. It’s smart consumerism that also shows you care about the environment.
When we recover your awning, we’ll take away the old cover for recycling, if you don’t want it. Woven-acrylic fabric, commonly used for awnings, takes hundreds of years to break down in a landfill. However, the fibre from your old awning cover can be up-cycled into new products or recycled with minimal energy input into new materials. The new Sunbrella® line of “Renaissance” fabrics uses recycled materials.
