Bonded Logic Insulation Made from Recycled Jeans
December 2nd, 2008 by Amiel Blajchman
What do you do with your old jeans when you’re done with them? If you’re one American manufacturing company (Bonded Logic), you make household insulation out of them.
Ok, the company actually takes post-industrial denim and cotton fibers (basically, the stuff that never became jeans) rather than the jeans that you’re tired of, and uses that as the major component (85%) to create LEED-applicable commercial and residential insulation.
Because of this feedstock and the process used to create the insulation, the insulation created by Bonded Logic doesn’t contain any chemical irritants or carcinogens. You can buy it at Home Depot, and get your kids to help you install it at home.
