0 Cool Product - Ecotraction

I first learned about Ecotraction last year from one of my colleagues. He saw it on the TV show Dragons Den and decided to check it out. What is it exactly? It is a green alternative to sand, salt and de-icer. That means you have all the benefits of a slip free walkway/driveway this winter and you don't have to worry about your impact on the environment.

Sand is not a great option because it gets into the waterways and degrades the water quality thereby preventing sunlight from getting to the plant and marine life.

Salt also gets into our waterways and adds to the salinity of the water. This can lead to loss of plant and marine life. And lets face it no one likes walking on the large salt bits or the lovely white ring it leaves on the bottom of your pants.

Ecotraction works by absorbing the layer of water that is on top of the ice and providing traction by creating a sandpaper like texture. It acts as a de-icer by attacting an increased amount of sunlight and allowing the snow/ice to melt at a fast rate. For more information check this out. All this and it doesn't have a negative impact on our waterways (or our pants).

Come springtime all you have to do is sweep Ecotraction up and you can reuse it on your lawn or in your garden or in your catbox. That's right...it is reuseable. I guess you could do that with salt too. One day on your driveway, the next on the rim of you margarita glass.
We will be using Ecotraction this winter and I look forward to seeing this product in action (from the comfort of my living room :) ).

So where can you find this cool product? Find a retailer near you and help green your winter snow removal practices.

I was not paid to write this post. I purchased this product on my own.
