Owens Corning has announced that the recycled content of its residential and commercial insulation products has been increased by an additional 10%, bringing it to at least 70% recycled glass content. We are pleased to report that Owens Corning PINK Fiberglas insulation products have reached still another environmental milestone, says David Flood, Insulation Expert at Owens Corning. Achieving the 70% of recycled content mark – the highest industry standard in Canada – is reflective of the way we do business. Simply put, sustainability is a core business strategy, and it means that we never stop our quest for more resource-efficient products and operations. The company continuously increases its resource efficiency through using recycled materials and reducing energy and material use throughout operations. The communities we serve, including homeowners and our business partners, benefit from additional opportunities to protect the environment by engaging in glass recycling efforts, turning waste glass into usable products and keeping glass out of landfills, says Flood.
