Who: The Green Cocoon

What: Launched in 2007 by plastics engineer Jim Materkowski and his business partner, the late Peter Strattner, both men saw room to grow an insulation business that was more than just a financially viable and energy-efficient service, but also something that provided environmentally sustainable options. Since that time, The Green Cocoon has grown to include a number of insulation services; such as spray-foam made from soybeans and recycled plastic bottles, recycled denim and a cellulose insulation made from recycled newspapers. Spray-foam insulation has grown in popularity over the years for its energy-eff

icient savings and is often applied to a home's basement or attic space where most energy is lost. The Green Cocoon offers a product that meets the strict requirements of traditional spray insulations to guarantee efficiency, but remains a completely green company.
