Eco-Insulation

Eco-Insulation in the community

Eco-Insulation is a winning brand that has received great community support, and is determined to give back. The brand has embarked on a number of corporate social responsibility projects in the various communities, involving the donation of product and service.

A number of Eco-Insulation agents in the various regions have become personally involved at a local level in supporting deserving social causes via a donation of expertise and product. Typical projects have included aged homes, schools and other facilities for the physically or mentally handicapped. Eco-Insulation's head office has established a wining relationship with Architecture for Humanity. They are an international non-profit architectural organisation involving the creation of a more sustainable future through design.

The Football for Hope, an outreach initiative of FIFA™ has been selected by Architecture for Humanity as its African project. This initiative was kick started in 2012 via its "20 Centres for 2010" programme that begun in South Africa as the official campaign the FIFA World Cup™ 2010. Eco-Insulation Cellulose Fibre Ceiling Insulation, became involved in supporting 5 Football for Hope centres around South Africa. Other local NGO's involved are Grassroot Soccer, which along with Love Life, promotes Aids awareness through the medium of football.

According to George Kinuthia, a leading Cape-based architect who has contributed time and resources to Architecture for Humanity, " the Eco-Insulation team was very professional and engaging in the whole process from arrival, assessing the scope, advising how they plan to execute, execution and satisfactory completion of the same."

In July David Raath, the owner of the Eco-Insulation business in the Lowveld, donated Eco-Insulation to the Bougainvilla Frail Care Centre. The 350m² house that was converted into the Centre, was insulated free of charge. Within two days, the Centre called to report that the interior was warm and cozy and that the residents were pleased with the warmth. Three months later, on a very warm 40ºC day, the residents say that the Centre is much cooler than what some of them remember last year to have been, before the insulation. When the air-conditioners are required, they are much more effective after the insulation as the cool air doesn’t dissipate.
