Great New “How To” Video

added to our CellularWindowShade’s YouTube channel
(remember to subscribe!)

This video augments our written instructions, mailed with every “Valet Kit” (2 cords per kit) order; it does not replace it. So now two great sources for Do-It-Yourselfers.

The instructions are specific to the Symphony Shade brand of window blinds, though you should be able to extrapolate the general concept, if you have some other type of cord loop shade. Give the video a look! It’s an easy in-home fix to a broken window shade.

Introducing the CWS “QUICK SHIP” program: Our most popular fabrics and colors can be yours with less waiting. We still offer *FREE* UPS Ground shipping to the Continental US – but let us know if faster UPS delivery is desired.

Sally in Idaho orders a Top Down Bottom Up (Duofold) shade in color ALTO (see fabric sample) on Tuesday Night – with our new QUICK SHIP program that shade will be heading out the door in two business days. UPS will be standing at Sally’s door five business days later (unless Sally lives in the tiny area that needs one extra UPS day).

Bob in Buffalo wants a black out blind shading that street lamp in his guest bedroom. Gardenia is his color of choice, and he opts for ComforTrack Plus side tracks and the Smoothy Cord Loop lift option. He orders on Friday and by mid-next-week his order is boxed and ready to ship. Bob lives two business days from the manufacturing facilities of CellularWindowShades.com, located in Williston, Vermont.

Keep coming back to see what 2013 has in store!

Yesterday, a customer had a LOT of “green” questions – so I ultimately ended up at the “Sins of Greenwashing” website. The thrilling news is their claim of 73% more green products on the market today than in 2009.

The downside: their last report is dated 2010!

However, I was still drawn to their Seven Sins of Greenwashing (as illustrated at left).

So, for a little fun and enlightenment, here are their SEVEN DEADLY SINS:

  • Sin of Hidden Trade-Off: claiming a product is green without attention to other important environmental issues
  • Sin of No Proof: claims that cannot be substantiated.
  • Sin of Vagueness: a poorly-defined claim. “All natural” is an example.
  • Sin of Worshipping False Labels: when, through words or images, a third-party endorsement is suggested where none exists.
  • Sin of Irrelevance: when an environmental claim is truthful – but unimportant, or unhelpful.
  • Sin of Lesser of Two Evils: “Organic” cigarettes is an example of this sin, or a “fuel-efficient” SUV.
  • Sin of Fibbing: Environmental claims that are simply false.

One of the forerunners of the “green” movement must surely be Mother Earth News – which includes in its franchise the magazine Mother Earth Living. Look for our CellularWindowShades.com ad!

OCTOBER is “National Window Covering Safety Month”. This nationwide campaign, by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Window Covering Safety Council, alerts consumers to the potential hazards of window cords. The push is on to use only CORDLESS window treatments for child-friendly homes.

The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) has the following tips to ensure that your child’s room is a SAFE room:

  • NEVER place a crib, playpen, bed, or low-standing furniture near a window. Young Children can fall through an open window or window screen.
  • CRIBS should be in compliance with the latest safety standards, with snug-fitting mattress and head- and footboards without decorative cut-outs or corners post extensions.
  • Once your child is able to push up on hands or knees, REMOVE crib toys strung across the crib or playpen to avoid strangulation hazards.
  • Fluffy comforters or pillows are a suffocation hazard. Keep them OUT of the crib.
  • Cover ALL electrical outlets.
  • Consider spring-loaded lid supports for toy chests: PREVENT a child playing inside from being trapped.
  • All child products, like powder and diaper ointment, should be kept OUT OF REACH.
  • Choose your window treatments with children in mind — the Cellular Shades pictured above feature the CORDLESS lift option.

To *Celebrate* Child Safety, CellularWindowShades.com is offering FREE Cordless Upgrades on Window Shades: that’s a savings of  up to $78 on each shade!

If you prefer the versatility of the Cordless Top Down Bottom Up lift option, our sale will save you $30 per shade.
