Most college students are just trying to pass classes and decide which is more important: sleeping or going out for a night on the town. For senior business major Tim Jordan and his wife, Danielle Jordan, it’s promoting their business Sunglo.

Sunglo is a Denver based business that the duo bought in February last year. They sell window films that help conserve energy by blocking the ultra violet, or UV, rays from penetrating the window.

The film not only helps conserve energy and reduce the energy bill each month, but can also protect against skin cancer, Danielle Jordan said.

UV rays come in through the window and are absorbed into the skin by anyone standing next to the window.

“We see the company fit into the social responsibility movement,” Tim Jordan said.

The couple said the environment has been their inspiration for expanding their company and their desire to go “green” was fostered at CSU.

“It’s being at CSU that got us involved in wanting to do things to help,” Danielle Jordan said. 

CU-Boulder is already on board with the application of the window films and is Sunglo’s biggest client. Nine windows in its library have had the window films placed on them.

“I am very happy with their work,” said CU’s assistant to the energy department, James Zdrowski. “We will be doing business with them in the future.”

The Jordan’s hope to do the same for CSU and are currently working to develop a relationship with the university and aid them in going “green”.

“We are hoping to build a relationship in the future, and they are evaluating it right now,” Danielle Jordan said. “Hopefully they (the windows) will be in the buildings very soon.”

Sunglo can be found at their office located at 3702 Manhattan Avenue, Suite 102 or online at www.sunglowf.com.
