Earth Innovations is an Ottawa-based company devoted to making high-quality sustainable eco-products. It started up in 2004, when its founder discovered the threat that toxic ice-melting chemicals posed to his beloved Cocker Spaniel and other dogs in his neighbourhood. After launching EcoTraction – the “safest and most cost-effective ice management solution” available – Earth Innovations went on to develop other eco-conscious products, always with the goal of delivering exceptional value with minimal environmental impact.
Why We Love Them
Earth Innovations lets us freshen up our lives in a natural, healthy way. Take their fabulous EcoCompo. With this all-natural product, we can compost faster and better, without the pungent smell we’ve tried to get used to. EcoCompo eliminates compost and garbage odours naturally by absorbing smell-inducing gases, like ammonia, methane and hydrogen sulfide. Just sprinkle it over the surface area of your compost bin whenever you add new compost, and let the decomposing begin.
EcoCompo works great with any composter, including green bins, kitchen collectors and home composts. Because it’s non-toxic, you can also use it to eliminate odours in litter boxes and compost toilets. And it’s cost-effective – one 4.5 kg jug can last up to 20 weeks.
We also highly recommend EcoAir-O, a 100% natural, chemical-free product that safely eliminates and controls odour, moisture and mildew. It’s an excellent way to get rid of smells at home, in the office, on camping trips, and in lockers, fridges or freezers, all without using any benzene, formaldehyde, phthalates, perfumes or hydrocarbon chemicals. Makes “scents” to us!
