How To Make Your Next Home Remodeling Project Greener

We all need to make our homes greener and more environmentally friendly. There are many different ways in which we can make our next home remodeling project both more cost effective and greener. We should try to find materials which are more environmentally friendly. It may surprise you to learn, that many modern insulating materials are made from recycled every day stuff.


Ideas for Green Home Improvement Project

The Scandinavians are probably the global leaders when it comes to using green insulating materials. Many of their ideas have now spread to the rest of the world, and specialist companies are now focusing on producing insulation materials from recycled every day house hold products. There are multiple ways of doing greener projects.

Insulation Materials

There is no longer a need to use fiberglass insulation. Now, if you want to make your home warmer, and at the same time cut down on heating bills, you can fill cavity walls with soya bean foam. Not only is this an environmentally friendly product, but it insulates better than fiberglass.

Natural fibers are an other alternatives. Recycled insulating materials are often made from what we throw away every week. Any natural fiber can be turned into green insulation, and cotton clothing is often used in the manufacturing. Tons and tons of old denim jeans are shredded and through a special process turned into lining for walls and attic spaces.

Wool fiber is also another popular choice. Sheep, after all do live in perhaps some of the harshest conditions known to us, and we have long used their wool to keep ourselves warm. Insulation materials made from wool work by trapping thousands of tiny air bubbles which will help to insulate your home.

Natural materials are not only better for the environment. They are safer and better for us to work with as well.
