In harmony with the environment.

We made environmental responsibility a priority decades before today's "green" movement. Through ongoing initiatives with our vendors, trade partners and customers, we will stay in the forefront of protecting our environment.

Sunbrella offers recycling service for customers.

The Recycle My Sunbrella program reclaims pre- and post-consumer Sunbrella waste and re-purposes it for incorporation into a variety of recycled products.

Sunbrella furniture fabrics are GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality.

Sunbrella furniture fabrics are certified by the GREENGUARD® Institute's Children and Schools standard as contributing to healthy indoor air by being a very low emitting interior product.

No wastewater from dyeing.

Sunbrella fabric's unique coloring process avoids harmful effluents associated with conventional dyeing processes. It also dramatically reduces water and energy consumption.

Sunbrella fabrics are extremely durable.

Sunbrella fabrics are engineered for a serviceable lifespan two to ten times longer than conventional fabrics. The environmental impact of producing cotton canvas, for example, must be multiplied many times to compare it with Sunbrella's extended longevity.

Sunbrella fabrics offer significant sun protection.

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella* as an aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. Please use shading products featuring Sunbrella as a part of your complete sun protection regimen, including regular use of sunscreen.

* Does not apply to styles of Sunbrella that are designed for transparency, such as Sunbrella Sheers.

Fabric awnings reduce energy consumption.

A recent study by the University of Minnesota illustrated that awnings made of fabric reduce home cooling energy consumption by 10% to 60% and peak cooling loads by as much as 40%, depending on geographic location. Cooling requires less energy because the awning's shade prevents the sun's heat from entering the home through windows.
