We Don’t Leave Footprints Behind - Rob

When I was younger I was an avid backpacker and hiker, hiking the Long Trail in Vermont and many sections of the Appalachian Trail. The hiker’s mantra was and is, “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.” That was the woodman’s creed to leave nothing behind but your footprints and pack out ALL of your trash.

The older I get, the more the lessons of my youth become stronger. This early life experience of hiking the trails gave me a lifelong commitment to try to live up to the creed.

Today I run a company that develops and markets environmentally responsible products for a variety of industries including agriculture, horticulture, aquatics and retail Home and Garden. BioSafe Systems lives the creed. Our products Leave No Foot Prints Behind.

All of the products developed and marketed by BioSafe Systems adhere to this simple requirement. Our products are 100% biodegradable, and within days of application it is almost impossible detect that they ever existed.

When we started BioSafe Systems in 1996, the idea of marketing pesticides that had no residual was counter to the prevailing standards. Growers and applicators wanted long-lasting and toxic residuals, so that they would have to spray less often to kill and suppress the target.

Sixteen years later society and the market have finally caught up to our vision. The market is demanding effective and powerful pest control products that do the job, but do not leave behind any residual that could affect the health of people, animals and the environment.

It makes me proud that our BioSafe Systems team is helping to make our world a better place. For every pound of product that we make available to our customers, we are replacing a pound of more toxic and residual pesticides.
