What are Eco-Friendly Window Treatments?

Eco Friendly Window CoveringsThere are several ways window treatments can be considered “eco-friendly” and help you reduce your carbon footprint. Think of windows as energy holes. Even with today’s sealed double-pane windows, closed windows still allow 10-15 times more heat energy to flow through them.
