Cellulose Insulation, Greenest Of The Green

The Greenest of the Green, Cellulose Insulation

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

Insulation, by reducing the amount of energy required to heat or cool a building, is environmentally friendly. But don't be fooled into thinking all insulating materials are equal. There is plenty of greenwashing taking place to make products look more beneficial, or less harmful, to the environment than they really are.

Cellulose Insulation is one of the greenest products in the world. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint and other paper sources, paper that might otherwise end up in landfills, releasing greenhouse gases as it decomposed.

If all the paper currently being put into landfills each year were converted to cellulose insulation, it would save approximately eight million tons of CO2 emissions.  That's the equivalent of taking every car off the road in New Mexico and Nevada.

Jason-

I got this in my attic. With an attic fan, my heating and cooling bills have gone down quite a bit.
