Welcome to Pro-Earth News
News, views and breakthroughs in environmental conservation.
World Environment Day takes place every year. It is the United Nations’ flagship day for promoting worldwide awareness and action for the environment. It has grown to be a large global platform, celebrated by millions of people in well over 100 countries.
This year, one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time - plastic pollution – is the focus. Statistics show that there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050. To change the future, we each need to play our part.
One of our clients, the Costain Group, expanded the length and scope of World Environment Day from
just one day to five and we were really pleased to be invited to participate.
Costain Environment Week included a variety of activities group-wide which encouraged the workforce
to make a difference. We were at their Crossrail site in Plumstead, along with distributor OnSite Support, demonstrating how our SaveSorb spill control products can help protect the environment during construction. Unlike many conventional solutions, SaveSorb is totally natural, sustainable, and
importantly, completely polymer-free.
Working with big organisations like Costain means that a small company like ours can harness
their size and become part of a collective power that can make a real, lasting positive impact on
SAVESORB: THE 4-STEP MARINE PROTECTION SOLUTION

A guest post by Alexandra Addison, Co-Founder and Director at Pro-Earth. As mentioned in last week's blogpost, Ecobarrier has partnered with Pro-Earth to distribute the SaveSorb marine product range in the region. More about it here. In this post, Alexandra will go into more detail about the 4-step spill solution.
The 4-Step Marine Protection Solution: A Complete Range For All Your Marine Needs
SaveSorb products are hydrophobic (repel water) and the most effective way of containing and
absorbing contaminants in marine and coastal environments. The 4-Step Marine Protection Solution
is designed to offer protection, while helping companies save time and money. How?
Step 1 - Prevention: No one can stop accidents from happening. But we can prevent them from
becoming expensive environmental incidents by identifying threats and deploying products that will contain and absorb contaminants fast.
The Long-Term Marine Booms with Curtain can be deployed for up to 12 months in open water to
provide the ultimate protection.
Marine Mats have many uses, including protecting harbours from oil and fuel spills.
Step 2 - Containment & Absorption: Spills can be contained quickly and easily with Containment Socks. The socks can be linked together to form a containment barrier of any size, or used to contain spills from leaking boats, docks or shore releases.
Step 3 - Clear Up: All SaveSorb products absorb oils, fuels and chemicals; no need for different products for different types of spills, saving you money.
Step 4 - Disposal: After use, SaveSorb stays dry so disposal is faster, easier, cleaner and lighter.

We are really pleased to annouce that Pro-Earth and Southern Water have been working in collaboration to establish the effectiveness of Pro-Earth’s SaveSorb product in removing heavy metals and other substances from wastewater.
Southern Water and other water companies have a number of challenging environmental permits. SaveSorb has the potential to help companies meet these permits now and in the future.
Laboratory testing has demonstrated good results under fast flow conditions and onsite testing will begin in the near future.
Dr. Nigel Munn, Process Scientist at Southern Water said: "the results from the laboratory testing have been encouraging. There is potential for SaveSorb to be used for applications within the water industry".
Southern Water's Innovation Strategy team are encouraged by the promising results of this Research & Development project and are looking forward to further collaboration with Pro-Earth on the on-site trial of SaveSorb.
Site Manager for Anglian Water @OneAlliance, Paul Evans, identified a vulnerable area at the water treatment works at Grimston, Norfolk. After a site survey, one of our drain mats was deployed in a gully as a preventative, protective measure to stop pollutants entering the drainage system.
A month later, Paul said: "The mat is great. It has had traffic over it and is very tough. It stayed in place during heavy rain and let water pass through it."
We regularly survey sites and recommend solutions to our customers to protect the environment. Contact Nick Addison for details 01273 467607 or 07730 803876.
