Utilize Noise-Reducing Insulation to Decrease Sound Pollution

Target: Bob Wamboldt, CEO and President of Johns Manville (a top insulation company and manufacturer)

Goal: Produce and install more noise-reducing insulation to halt growing noise pollution.

Increased noise pollution adversely affects the health of millions. It reportedly impacts stress-related health issues, sleep cycles, blood pressure, speech impediments, anxiety, and more. The booming global population and modernization has caused increased noise pollution, and many large corporations emit unneeded noise because of the use of heavy machinery and/or exhaust fans. In order to prevent further noise pollution from occurring, noise-reducing insulation prevents sound waves from transporting outdoors.

While many insulation companies already produce noise-reducing insulation, more needs to be manufactured and utilized. Regular insulation reduces some noise, but it’s often not enough to reduce the noise from outdoor activities, especially when homes and buildings are situated near roads and cities. The sound of cars driving on highways may be enough to impact sleep patterns and/or induce insomnia. Even in apartments, neighbors can hear one another, often leading to noise complaints. In all commercial and residential buildings, noise-reducing insulation is the key to reducing overall noise pollution.

As more cities develop and expand, noise pollution becomes more and more severe. This is a common problem in cities and small suburbs alike. Sign below to advocate for the increased production and use of noise-reducing insulation for the benefit of the general public.


Dear Mr. Wamboldt,

Noise pollution is a prevalent issue with modernization and the expansion of cities. It causes increased stress, anxiety, and presents many health concerns that may lead to issues later in life. A good way to reduce this stressor is to advocate for the implementation of noise-reducing insulation in any and all commercial and residential facilities.

Large corporations, public transportation, and just the day-to-day lives of civilians contribute to noise pollution. Large manufacturing companies often use large machines that emit intense sound waves into the environment. Even family gatherings and/or outdoor events contribute to noise pollution. By implementing insulation that prevents the transportation of sound waves, small and large emissions alike are reduced, as are the negative impacts of sound pollution.

Please prevent further noise pollution by opting for the use of noise-reducing insulation. This is a simple switch from normal insulation and it does not instill any ramifications to the environment. Instead, it provides a more relaxed environment for those impacted by loud noises. Please make this small change. We appreciate your attention to this important message.

  1. Insulation to reduce noise needs to be part of any building, repair, or extension. Noise pollution is a problem and this is a good way to reduce noise. I support this a part of the building process.
    Now if we could only do this for those horribly offensive loud cars with torn mufflers that would also be a blessing. As for the radios which boom that might be harder to deal with on the road. Not everyone wants to listen to your music at such high decibels!

  2. I can’t in good conscience sign this petition. The idea is great but what material will be used for insulation? Styrofoam is often used, but it is one of the worse plastic substances on the planet. It breaks down into micro plastics, which sit around forever and become part of the soil, air, oceans wildlife and even us. This is NOT an option. Insulation made from recycled denim is probably a better idea, but only if it is cotton. Polyester fibers do the same thing as styrofoam, as they are also oil based. This problem needs to be thoroughly thought through, before it is initiated. Again, it’s damned if we do and damned if we don’t!
