One of the building industry’s most environmentally friendly products just got a whole lot greener and a bit less confusing. UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation, commonly referred to as “recycled blue jean insulation”, is now sourced entirely of post-consumer blue jeans instead of the post-industrial denim scraps it was previously made from. The recycled jean material has made its way through the used clothing chain without being sold and has reached a point where it would typically either go to a landfill or be incinerated. Now, this material will be put to good use in UltraTouch cotton insulation.
Additionally, UltraTouch’s packaging has been improved to increase its product per truckload by 15 percent. This significantly lowers the product’s carbon footprint and makes shipping easier.
