Fiberglass insulation, although practical and pink, isn’t exactly the at the top of the list of environmental products to use in your home. Bonded Logic realized this, and found a safer material to make your home insulation out of: blue jeans.Fiberglass insulation, although practical and pink, isn’t exactly the at the top of the list of environmental products to use in your home. Bonded Logic realized this, and found a safer material to make your home insulation out of: blue jeans. The manufacturer takes post-industrial denim and cotton from jean maker’s factories, crushes it down, and uses it for 85% of the “recycled” insulation. It doesn’t itch, doesn’t contain chemicals or carcinogens, you can find it at Home Depot, and best of all, it’s LEED applicable for commercial and residential usage. If you want to teach your kids about the value of recycled products when you’re building your next home, make the switch to denim insulation, and they’ll even be able to help you install it.
