Introducing Enviro First Solutions

Enviro First Solutions is an Australia-based company which sells creative, affordable, environmentally friendly products suitable for individuals and governments alike.

Some of their most popular items are oil spill kits and absorbent kits which are designed to help with the cleanup of different sizes of oil spills. The kits are designed with environmental regulations in mind--for example, if you are a recreational boater, you still need to be responsible for any oil spillage when fixing your engine, etc.

The spill kits on the site include compact, easy to use kits for hobbyists as well as larger kits suitable for municipal use. There are spill bags, spill bins, and a product called Envirohold allows for easy removal and disposal of the spilled oil by making it mass together when in the water. The products are designed to be cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

The Enviro First Solutions website also includes a detailed description of silt fencing and how it helps prevent soil loss on construction sites or other areas where the land is being disturbed. This type of fencing is important in protecting habitats and keeping waterways and sewers from becoming clogged with sediment. The site gives details on design and placement of fences, and you can contact the company for more information about silt fence installation on your building site.

Personally, as I browsed the company's website, I was impressed with their biodegradable alternative to sandbags. Their Easy Bags come flat packed and contain a polymer which absorbs water and inflates so that it functions like a sandbag, but you don't have to shovel sand and haul heavy sandbags to build a barrier to protect yourself from flooding. As the video below says, "your threat becomes your solution" when water-filled Easy Bags function as a protective wall.

If you are in Australia and are looking for a friendly, knowledgeable group of people who are creating products to help protect the environment, check out Enviro First Solutions' website, or just give them a call or an email.
