What type of green insulation should I use?

Use Cellulose Insulation

Don't let cold weather months and drafts bring you down. Keep your house warm and comfy by installing cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation is a recycled form of insulation made from 100% recycled newspapers. Newspaper waste happens to be one of the largest products in our waste system. Not only will you be using an environmentally friendly green product, but you'll be using an effective form of insulation for your home. Studies done by the University of Colorado at Denver showed that cellulose insulation performed better than fiberglass by 38% by attaining a tighter building cavity and allowing less heat loss.
