Cellulose Insulation and the Environment

Building insulation plays an integral role in the energy efficiency of homes and buildings and in turn their environmental impacts. More and more consumers want to know how green the materials are that go into their homes and buildings. That is good news for the environment. It’s also good news for CIMA because when it comes to insulation products, cellulose insulation is the Greenest Of The Green®.
