NATURALLY ECO-FRIENDLY


A healthier choice for the environment

Wool is a natural, renewable resource that is non-toxic and biodegradable, so using Terra Lana means less synthetic materials in our homes and in landfill at the end of the products life.

Terra Lana also has a very low energy footprint because the wool and polyester we use is mostly recycled, saving on energy otherwise needed for producing raw materials.

Terra Lana is 100% recyclable in our factory—for all off-cuts and at the end of a homes life.

MADE FROM RENEWABLE RESOURCES


Sheep keep on growing wool!

So of course it's fully renewable—as long as we have sheep that keep doing their job.

The wool we use is mostly recycled (from clean waste carpet yarn) and then blended with polyester, also mostly recycled from PET bottles—and there's plenty of that which needs recycling too!

The wool textiles industry produces enough waste wool to keep us well supplied making Terra Lana.

Less international transport, more local economy

Being as locally made as possible is a big factor in looking after the environment. We make all of our insulation in our purpose-built Christchurch manufacturing facilities. This means less international transport and more support for our local economy.

SAVING ENERGY


Less energy used making it, less energy used for your heating

While using recycled resources saves energy in producing Terra Lana, it keeps on saving energy after that too.

When your home is well insulated, it will retain heat much longer, plus you'll be able to reheat it more quickly and efficiently. That saves you money on your monthly heating costs—and saves impact on the environment.
