Toddlers are crafty little people. I’m amazed at the trouble my two-year old manages to get into everyday, and at the number of times I use the word “no.” While you can’t keep them safe from every little bump and bruise it’s important to provide a safe environment to minimize the chances of your child injuring himself at home. One often overlooked hazardous household item parents sometimes overlook, corded window coverings.
Did you know there are 20+ window cord-related deaths and injuries on average per year? Children from ages 7 months to 7 years are at risk. Don’t underestimate how high your child can reach or their ability to use objects to climb up on. The best way to ensure your home is safe from cord-related accidents is to replace the blinds with cordless window shades.
On March 31, 2016, SelectBlinds.com became the first custom window covering company to go 100% cordless. They’ve teamed up with Parents for Window Blind Safety to educate and empower parents and change the industry.
You can join the GoCordless movement by sharing the risks of corded blinds, and also by nominating friends and family for the Project Cordless giveaway.
Each month, SelectBlinds.com is partnering with Parents for Window Blind Safety for the Project Cordless giveaway to upgrade an entire home, apartment, military housing unit or daycare facility with cordless window coverings at no charge. To nominate someone you know , submit a 30-second video to www.selectblinds.com/gocordless.html#ProjectCordless
