Companies like Celbar offer insulation made from recycled paper. Like denim, this does double duty: providing eco-friendly insulation while reducing landfill waste. Celbar even has spray insulation, a great alternative to conventional spray foam for insulating crawl spaces and attics.
Insulating from the Outside In
Greensulate has a unique take on eco-insulation. Rather than focusing on what’s inside your walls, they have options for creating green walls on your home. Talk about multiple benefits! Green walls help save energy, of course, but the greenery itself improves air quality and helps fight climate change.
While too much soy might not be the dietary ideal, it’s a great alternative to conventional, toxic spray insulation. Perfect for attics and crawl spaces, soy-based foam helps improve air quality. If you want to find soy insulation for your home, you might check out companies like BioBased.
