HOW SUSTAINABLE ARE SPILLFIX ABSORBENTS

Sustainability Graphic

Economic Sustainability

  • Supporting local livelihoods by creating jobs and an economy from a sustainable waste stream
  • What was once waste is now generating a profitable income for local communities

Social Sustainability

  • No Child labor
  • Fair pay for fair work
  • Company healthcare programs
  • Community outreach programs
  • Communities involved in the chain of SpillFix production can sustain themselves

Environmental Sustainability

  • The raw material – coconuts – are grown without chemicals or fertilizers… only rainwater
  • Production requires no mining or deforestation
  • The actual material from which SpillFix is made – the coir from the husk – is literally recovered from the waste stream of the coconut industry
  • With an absorbent capability 1/8 the weight of clay absorbents, SpillFix requires far less energy for packaging, shipping, storage, and disposal
  • SpillFix is reusable until fully saturated and in most instances can be disposed of in non-hazardous landfill

"Bar-B-Que sauce is easy enough to clean up when it’s on your fingers and lips, but it’s an entirely different story when a five-gallon jug of it ruptures and flows onto a warehouse floor. SpillFix was applied to the entire disaster area – from the pallet to the cardboard, the shrink wrap and the growing puddle on the floor. In three and a half minutes, the entire mess was cleaned, and the warehouse was restored to a safe workplace again — using just one product. "
