As we mentioned last week, being environmentally responsible can be beneficial not only for the Earth, but for your business as well. Being proactive in conservation and recycling paves the way for a better future for younger generations, while also appealing to local neighbors and consumers, who might otherwise frown upon your business’ wasteful habits. Another important step to take when attempting to go green and be environmentally responsible, however, is using products at your place of work that create less waste.
It can be difficult to find products that match up with those goals of conservation, particularly within the industrial businesses we regularly work with. To help meet this need, we set out to create an environmentally responsible product that would help make your business better also. The result? SpillFix, a product that every company should consider investing in – for four key reasons:
- Spillfix is created from an organic renewable resource: coconut husks! Because we use a sustainable resource, the earth’s other limited reserves aren’t being depleted. Over 70 million coconut husks are produced in Asia each year, and no coconut trees are cut down in the process of manufacturing Spillfix, leaving the trees to sprout more coconuts for future use. All of these things make Spillfix the most ecologically sustainable absorbent product available.
- Because we manufacture Spillfix in local factories located inside the coconut plantations, waste from shipping and transportation of the raw materials is drastically reduced. Therefore, diffusion of pollutants into the atmosphere is diminished and the carbon footprint of our product is minimized.
- Spillfix has been tested against the USEPA Leachate standards for landfill disposal making it safe for disposal in landfills (although you should always check with local authorities to verify whether or not your local laws contain additional rules to comply with). Also, Spillfix is still usable after its life-cycle has worn out, as the hydrocarbons absorbed after its use can be used as a fuel source in energy producing incinerators.
- Spillfix is biologically stable and free of harmful micro-organisms. Because of this, when SpillFix is discarded, it can create a perfect environment for the biodegrading organisms to develop – all while steadily holding onto any material it has absorbed, protecting the environment from any previously absorbed spills. So instead of damaging the environment when disposing of SpillFix, it can actually improve it.
These four features of SpillFix highlight why SpillFix is the best choice for industrial absorbent. It’s non-harmful to the environment when you dispose of it. Producing it doesn’t negatively impact the coconut trees or the environment. And being made from coconut husks means it’s a renewable resource. SpillFix is environmentally responsible and using it will help your business make the step towards being environmentally friendly.
