We’ve recently discovered one of the most interesting ways to go green right here in Northeast Ohio! It’s a surprising addition to the list of all things eco-friendly known as natural fiber insulation. Natural builders in the US and Canada confirm the use of animal fibers that most of us would call fur to insulate homes and businesses. Beyond the absence of byproducts typical to man-made insulation (think fiberglass), animal fiber makes for hypoallergenic fire retardant insulation. And a local company based in Stark County, Ohio – Alpaca Fiber Insulation Company of Ohio – is producing a high quality variation on its Alpaca farm in Minerva, Ohio!
