Bicycles, Upcycles, Recycles …

Life is all about cycles. In a time before Uber, before even automobiles (what? There was such a time?), people often rode two-wheeled contraptions known as bicycles. Today many people of all ages prefer scooters and skateboards, which require less human power and also don’t require fossil fuel. Upcycling has also become popular: one person’s trash is another’s treasure. But the biggest cycle on everyone’s radar these days is recycling, because our planet is pretty maxed out on trash that can’t be turned into treasure.

Here at Impact Absorbents, we get it. A lot of us have kids, so bicycles and tricycles abound. We upcycle where practical. And when it comes to our premier spill clean up and spill containment solutions, we use recycled materials whenever possible.

For instance: our Recycled Fiber Universal Heavyweight Absorbent Pads. Impact’s advanced technology expands the fibers to give you more surface area for increased absorption speed and capacity.

We know spills and waste come in all shapes and sizes. You need a flexible product that lets you clean up fast without the worry of escaped waste. No matter how irregular the shape, our absorbent pads can take it. Crumple into pipefittings, wrap around hoses, wipe down barrels — it conforms to the shape you need.

A cheap pad costs more in the long run, because you have to use more pads to get the job done. Our absorbent pads consistently provide maximum performance, so it takes fewer pads to clean up, helping you reduce waste, too. The bonus: our pad is already made from recycled material, so you’re being twice as environmentally conscious!

And what’s more important for planetary survival than water? While we’re had our share of it this winter, we still need to protect our oceans and marinas every day. When you’re working on our waterways, keep Recycled Fiber Heavyweight Oil Absorbent Pads handy. Designed to absorb oil while repelling water in either the work environment or on water, they’re perfect for any type of marine spill. The brilliant white color is easily seen on water.

Thanks for doing your part to care for the planet when you’re protecting spills from contaminating your work environment or our waterways. As we say around here about our EcoLogo Certified products, it’s the eco-logical thing to do!
