Washington Home Insulation Made Of Recycled Paper

Currently, fiberglass holds 94% of the insulation market in the U.S. Cellulose insulation however, leads as an innovative and eco-friendly competitor within the building products industry. This is all thanks to GreenFiber.

GreenFiber is a material made of a natural fiber form of insulation that helps lower the energy that is regularly needed to heat Washington homes.  Additionally, GreenFiber is derived from 85% recycled paper fiber. In turn, this reduces the manufacturing costs and provides further use to billions of tons of paper each year. Cellulose home insulation for residential housing in Washington is comprised of the millions of tons of recycled paper that is collected each month from commercial accounts, municipal recycling partnerships and public drop-off locations. It is then put through a process that consists of grinding the paperboard, throw-aways from manufacturers, retailers and the public. During the processing, ammonium sulfate and borate are contributed as a fire repellant.

Cellulose insulation is more effective than fiberglass with respect to mold protection, soundproofing, fire resistance and air flow. Though fiberglass remains the leader in the market for home insulation in Washington, GreenFiber’s cellulose insulation is proving to be an up-and-coming competitor!
