SpaceSaver R-12 and R-20 bags are the same physical size as traditional bags of insulation, yet contain 11% to 60% more insulation, respectively. This means retailers are able to stock more product; fewer resources are needed to handle orders; and less packaging ends up in landfill.
By converting to R-12 and R-20 SpaceSaver bags, Owens Corning says The Home Depot Canada will receive nearly 250 fewer delivery trucks per year than with traditional packaging.
