We see other companies using harsh chemicals like zinc and other metal sulfates which is a huge problem for fish and water ways. Plus it just does not work all that well.
Our why, in this business is to help people get the longest roof life possible by using methods that are the easiest on the shingles for the removal process followed by a treatment that is a registered organic and is safe to use around plants, gardens and water sheds. Plus it just works amazing! Much better than anything else that we have seen.
- What is Organic? According to the USDA, a product can be called organic if it was developed in an environmentally-friendly manner. Further, organic products can’t be produced using synthetic fertilizers, sewage, irradiation and genetic engineering.
- What is Natural? The USDA explains that only meat, poultry and eggs can be called ‘Natural,’ and that label is only to be applied to those products that have no artificial ingredients and have been minimally processed. As a further clarification, a ‘natural’ label has nothing to do with the methods in which the meat, poultry or eggs were produced.
With those definitions settled, there was still one lingering problem: What about the products used to develop these organic and natural foods? Who monitors those and how can a consumer trust that a food labeled organic wasn’t treated with a synthetic insecticide or other treatment that might alter its nutrition levels?
With that in mind, the USDA recruited the Organic Materials Review Institute, best known as OMRI. The USDA has OMRI to focus on the input products used in food production – fertilizers, pesticides, livestock health care products and a number of other products. OMRI works to ensure that all the substances used in organic production meet rigorous, federally set standards.
The input products that meet those standards are then added to OMRI’s list of products approved for use in organic production and can display the OMRI Listed® logo on their packaging.
