Wool is the only natural insulation fibre readily available in New Zealand. And it's 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.
NEW ZEALAND MADE
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.
