- Cellulose takes less energy to make than any other
insulation material. This is known as embodied energy and includes the
total energy required to transport raw materials, manufacture and
distribute the product. Fiberglass has up to 10 times more embodied
energy than cellulose and foam products up to 64 times.2
- Cellulose has the highest level of recycled content in
the insulation industry - up to 85%. Cellulose insulation is made with
recycled paper, paper that might otherwise end up in a landfill.
Fiberglass has a maximum of 40% recycled content and foam products
little or none.
- Cellulose insulation, by utilizing recycled paper, helps
prevent the release of the greenhouse gas methane which would result if

- Cellulose insulation is regionally produced. Using local
recycling programs and independent recyclers, and servicing communities

insulation is made from recycled news print and other wood fibers. It is
shredded and treated with a fire retardant and a fungicide. It is safe,
clean and non-alergenic.
