When the opportunity came up for the chance to review EcoTraction I jumped at it! I mean any product that can get all five Dragons on the Dragon den working together has my attention. The other attention getting fact about EcoTraction is that they are a PTPA award winning product.
There are few things that get me excited for snow to fall. I am the one grumbling when that first “pretty” snow covering appears. Well that changed this morning. There was a sprinkling of 3cm over night. The first thing I thought of when I saw the snow was “I hope the buses aren’t cancelled” then I thought “I get to try out my EcoTraction!”.
This is our first winter back in Ontario. We have spent the last five years in Calgary. There is this wonderful phenomenon in Calgary called a Chinook wind. The warm wind blows… really BLOWS through town and melts everything. It is so reliable that the city of Calgary accounts for it in their snow removal budget. We never worried about ice and never used salt. When we moved back to the Ottawa Valley I quickly remembered what the walkway and driveway will look like. Things are different than 5 years ago for us. We have two little ones getting on the bus on the side of the highway and we have our rescue dog Miss Bella.
EcoTraction was created when the founder could not find no alternatives to harsh road salt. I did not know this but dogs can die from cancer stimulated by licking toxic road salt caught in their paws. Salt is also harmful to infrastructure, contaminates soil and pollutes water sources. Even sand that is used as an alternative has some salt mixed in to it.
EcoTraction is made from a naturally-occurring volcanic mineral and is eco-friendly, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly. Simply sprinkle EcoTraction on snow or ice and it embeds itself in ice and snow creating a sandpaper like layer. EcoTraction granules can be swept into gardens and lawns to help them thrive in the spring. EcoTraction is also concentrated so that it covers 9x the ground of a comparable sized bag of salt.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this product. I love that it is safe for the kids, dog, grass and our walkway. I love how easy it is to pour EcoTraction and get it where it needs to be! I love that it will instantly make my kids bustop along a busy highway safe. Knowing it is safe for our beloved family dog is a relief as well. I will have a slip free winter thanks to EcoTraction!
