Nu-Wool was GREEN long before Green Building existed. With its low embodied energy, high recycled content and superior energy saving performance, Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is one of the GREENEST insulation products in the marketplace.
Over sixty-five years ago, Nu-Wool Co., Inc. began using recycled newspaper to manufacture its environmentally safe and effective cellulose insulation. The recycled content of Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is 86%, with 65% of that being post-consumer recycled newspaper. Converting recycled paper to insulation used in the walls and attics of buildings helps keep it out of landfills, where it has the potential to pollute the environment. Recycling paper also reduces the number of trees used to produce new paper. The amount of Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation in an average-sized new home is the equivalent of 39 trees!
Using Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is more than a smart choice for its comfort and savings benefit, it is environmentally friendly even in the manufacturing process. It takes at least 10 times MORE energy to make fiberglass insulation than to produce cellulose insulation.
The application process of Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is also GREEN, because all excess sprayed insulation is brushed off the wall and then vacuumed up to be reused resulting in no product waste. Even the product bags can be recycled!
