GCS Goes Green

"Protecting your home and our environment"

While quality service and performance are of utmost importance to us, Gulf Coast Shutter is also committed to minimizing the carbon footprint left by these practices.

Gulf Coast Shutter Goes GreenA Few of of the ways GCS Practices Green Initiatives

  • Reducing printing, and giving friendly reminders to not print unless absolutely necessary
  • Recycling plastic and unusable electronics
  • Turning off light and electronics when not in use
  • Set thermostat a few degrees warmer in the summer, a few degrees cooler in winter
  • Use compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Buy in bulk to reduce packaging

GCS uses promotional products that meet green standards. Instead of products that are harmful to the environment, we have turned to earth-friendly alternative products to use during promotions. From replanting trees in devastated forests to piggy banks made from recycled denim scraps and plastic, we are committed to making a change for our environment.

GCS offers products to help reduce your energy usage and help your home go green. Throughout partnerships with Wayne-Dalton, Overhead Door and many more, we offer products that will help to not only reduce cost but can help make your home more environmentally sustainable.
