The ecofective® range from Sipcam, one of the world’s leading plant technology companies, offers unrivalled peace of mind, thanks to its new series of ‘Child and Pet Safe’ products.
Made in Britain for the ethically conscious gardener, the range does not rely on conventional chemical pesticides or biocides but instead uses natural ingredients with favourable eco-toxicological credentials.
This means the range is inherently safer for both user and the environment, so children, pets and wildlife do not need to be kept away from the treated areas as Matt Jones of Sipcam UK explains:
“Since 2009, the CLP Regulation requires chemicals to be classified for hazards and the packaging to be labelled accordingly. Hazard pictograms have to be firmly affixed to common consumer household products such as washing-up liquid, laundry detergents, shampoos and even antibacterial gels and soaps, highlighting warnings such as “Can cause serious eye irritation, Keep out of reach of children, Harmful to aquatic life etc.”
“The ecofective® Child and Pet Safe products (currently eight) use effective formulations based on ‘green chemistry’ and need no such labels. To say our products are safer for children and pets than Fairy Liquid to the trade and consumer is a powerful and bold statement to be able to make.
“There is a common misconception that all pesticides and fertilisers in garden care products are harmful, however ecofective® use naturally derived ingredients which leave no residual effect on the environment, making the treated area instantly safe for all the family, aquatic life and wildlife too!
Now more than ever the nation is being educated about the importance of protecting the world we live in, with a specific focus on bee safety. Rest assured the ecofective® Child and Pet Safe range is also safe to use around bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects too.”
This specific sub-category offers garden retailers an attractive and highly visible product offer, fully supported by a compact FSDU and 1 metre shelf header boards to help merchandise the range. We encourage retailers to tap into the increasing consumer demand and growth for child and pet safe products and stock up for the upcoming gardening season.”
