1. Owens Corning Pink Fiberglas Insulation products increase building energy effi-
ciency, saving money for homeowners and helping them reduce their carbon footprint.
Owens Corning recently increased the certified recycled content of Pink insulation to
contain at least 40 percent recycled content. Insulation is one of the most cost-effective
ways to reduce greenhouse gases globally, according to a McKinsey Institute study.

2. Consisting of a two-component foam insulation, CertainTeed CertaSpray open-cell polyurethane spray foam
insulation is sprayed into a building cavity and quickly expands to fill every opening that can potentially leak air.
CertaSpray minimizes hot and cold spots, impedes the penetration of moisture and outdoor allergens and is appro-
priate for whole-house applications.

(USDA) BioPreferred and International Code Council (ICC) requirements for a rapidly renewable product. The
