Christine Armstrong

About Christine Armstrong and Second Nature . . . .

Ten years ago, Christine Armstrong (with help from Leeds University Non-Woven Textile department) launched her natural, ‘British grown’ insulation product – Thermafleece.

Famous for its wool insulation Second Nature now also supplies a hemp based insulation which is a blend of  UK grown hemp and recycled polyester.

Christine, as well as starting up the new Local Group in the North West, has also served as a Trustee of the AECB.  She believes that impartial independent advice and the encouragement of innovation within the green sector is fundamental to the AECB’s ethos. Having now had Thermafleece in the market for ten years, she has gained an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the complexities of researching, marketing and distributing sustainable building. It is this knowledge that she hopes to share to encourage and energise the Association.
