Modern Insulation

Greenest of the Green

While some people may debate the question of global warming, it is just common sense to use products that have the minimum impact on the environment.

Insulation, by its very nature, is environmentally friendly by decreasing the amount of energy used to heat and cool a building. But don’t be fooled into thinking all insulating materials are equal. There is plenty of “green-washing” that takes place to make products look more beneficial to the environment than they really are.

Cellulose Insulation is one of the greenest products in the world.

Made from a renewable natural resource which diverts waste from landfills, Cellulose insulation not only limits greenhouse gas emissions during manufacturing, but also prevents waste paper from releasing environmentally harmful gases as it decomposes.

If all the paper currently being put into landfills was converted to Cellulose insulation, it would save approximately 7,030,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year. That is the equivalent of taking all the cars off the road in New Mexico and Nevada each and every year.1
