"Morris maintains that the trend towards greener products could help to take Woolcool into the mainstream. “It's not just about the financial bottom line anymore. Woolcool is much less costly in environmental terms and such things may well be reflected in the price of polystyrene one day. Local councils are increasingly reluctant to take it as waste. "
