Cotton Incorporated and Bonded Logic Inc. are partnering together to help communities go green.
Last year, they introduced the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation Grant Program. Cotton will join Bonded Logic at Booth 530 to promote the grant program at the upcoming 2011 AIA Convention in New Orleans on May 12 – 14.
Through the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® program, denim is collected and then converted to UltraTouch Denim Insulation to be been used in the building of multiple homes for communities in need. The grant program allows groups developing community-based green buildings the chance to obtain UltraTouch Denim Insulation (R-13, R-19, R-21 and R-30) for their project.
Requests for insulation can be made by filling out the grant application on www.CottonFromBlueToGreen.org through September 30, 2011. The request must be made directly by an architect, builder or licensed contractor working on the project or a company with one on staff, and meet the eligibility requirements as outlined on the website.
“Since the launch of the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® denim drive in 2006, our partner Bonded Logic has manufactured more than 1.5 million square feet of insulation from the denim we have collected across the nation,” said Andrea Samber, spokesperson for the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® program at Cotton Incorporated. “Joining them at the 2011 AIA Convention will enable us to reach groups developing community-based green buildings that stand to benefit from our grant program.”
In addition to being at the AIA Convention, Cotton will be participating in a build with the New Orleans area Habitat for Humanity affiliate utilizing UltraTouch Denim Insulation from the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® program. For more information on this effort, contact Shawn Steiner at (917) 497-3037.
“Partnering with Cotton allows us to provide UltraTouch Denim Insulation free to communities in need while at the same time helping them be green and sustainable,” said Sean Desmond, Sales/Marketing Director for Bonded Logic. “The build in New Orleans is a perfect example of the success of the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® program.”
