Mexicali News: Eco-Friendly Insulation at the Newcastle Store

Mexicali News: Eco-Friendly Insulation at the Newcastle Store

Although we’re not actively pursuing LEED certification for our new store, we are trying to implement as many energy efficient/green building aspects as possible, hoping to reduce our environmental impact & be kind to our planet. One part of that is this crazy-looking cellulose insulation!

photo 2Cellulose insulation is made from 75-85% recycled paper fiber–usually post-consumer waste newsprint (the remaining 15% is fire-retardant material).  Cellulose is a favorable way to insulate according to the US Green Building Council, as it meets the standards of two LEED catagories: energy & atmosphere performance (meaning the insulation will help us to use less energy to keep the building heated & cooled), and materials & resources recycled content (because it’s made from recycled materials). Pretty cool, right? We think so!  Just one more reason that we’re super stoked about this new space!
