Twenty-three percent of Americans still read a printed newspaper, which means approximately 72,500,096 dailys are tossed each day. Cellulose Material Solutions turns trash into treasure, making batt insulation from newspaper-based cellulose fibers. Designed for 2x4 stud framing, the newest version, Ecocell 5.5, has an R-value of 20. Batts come in 16" and 24" widths and 94" and 96" lengths; blankets come in 48"-by-96" or 48"-by-108" sizes. The product is processed with an EPA-registered fungicide and is completely recyclable at the end of its life. Yet another reason to keep print alive.
