The Warm Fuzzies, Without the Itch

Batt insulation made 50 percent of recycled plastic bottles (the other half is virgin polyester) means no glass fibers to cause skin irritation and no need for you to wear a mask during installation. It looks as easy to handle as a foam pillow and won't sag over time. The R-value is 4 per inch for an R-13 batt, which costs 72 cents per square foot. They also make R-15, R-19, and R-21 batts.
