With the demand for cleaning products ever much greater due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and many sailing schools, clubs and marine businesses wishing to get back in action safely and sustainably. The Green Blue has teamed up with Product Partner Ecoworks Marine to offer RYA and British Marine members a discount on their products.
The Covid-19 pandemic is highlighting how important it is for the human race to look after the planet that sustains us. For sailors and those that rely on the ocean every day for work and play, this crisis should act as a call to arms to consider how we can protect the ocean in every way we can.
Many traditional cleaning products contain raw materials derived from the petrochemical industry. These products are first mined from the ground before being converted into chemicals such as Formaldehyde, Kerosene, Mineral Acids, Phosphates, Solvents and many more. Many of these chemicals have a large carbon footprint due to the processes of attaining them, and post-use they can find their way into the water systems, having a detrimental effect on aquatic life.
Not even to mention the effect these products can have on human health too. Did you know that a study in 2018 revealed that bleach-based cleaning products can be as damaging to the lungs as smoking a pack of cigarettes every day!
Ecoworks Marine’s range uses naturally derived ingredients such as organic acids and plant extracts to boost their effectiveness; plant extracts include Yucca, Citrus, Aloe Vera and Lavender.
Prior to the Pandemic, Ecoworks had their Surface Sanitiser tested and approved to EN14476 against enveloped viruses, valid against all coronaviruses, including 2019 n-CoV / SARS-CoV-2. This Sanitiser along with the rest of their range can be used not only on the boats but also around the rest of a Club House, Sailing School, Office, House etc.
Ecoworks is not only offering a 10% discount but also free shipping at this time to help businesses get moving, on orders over £40.
