How Terra Lana is part of a better tomorrow

In recent times we have seen a shift in consumer purchasing behaviour. Consumers are increasingly conscious of where their products have come from, how they were made and the impact that they have on our environment.

Choosing a sustainable, environmentally friendly product is at the forefront of many consumers purchasing behaviour. Needless to say, we are thrilled by this shift. Since its inception, Terra Lana’s entire business operations have been curated with a sustainable mindset.

Waste Management

We are passionate about minimising our waste throughout production and during the installation process. We operate a Zero Waste policy. Any unused off-cuts created during installation are returned to the factory and recycled into more insulation.

  • Terra Lana Wool Blend Insulation is 100% recyclable. 
  • We use a mix of new & recycled pre-consumer waste wool, mainly from carpet manufacturers.
  • Our wool is blended with a percentage of recycled polyester, saving single use PET plastic bottles from landfill.
  • Low carbon manufacturing.
  • Reduced packaging - when possible, we supply insulation un-bagged to reduce waste.
