Since the beginning of human existence, we have relied on the earth's waterways for food, travel, and transportation. We still rely on water just as much as ever, but we now understand the gravity of human impact on our aquatic environments. It's our responsibility to make sure that we take care of our waterways– not only for our own safety and enjoyment, but also for the protection of aquatic plants and animals.
"Greenwashing" is a term used to describe marketing that misleads customers with unsubstantiated information into believing that the products they are purchasing are environmentally friendly. Unfortunately, the world of marine cleaning is filled with brands that deceptively label their products as “environmentally friendly,” “all natural,” and “biodegradable." Because the EPA has limited regulation for private-use products, many brands can claim that their products are biodegradable even if they take thousands of years to biodegrade.
Watch our short documentary above to learn more about greenwashing, how DiTEC is committed to maintaining the highest quality of marine cleaning and preservation products in the industry, and how DiTEC keeps our waterways safe for everyone by making products that exceed EPA standards.
