NHL’s Calgary Flames have traction even before season starts

January 18, 2013

OTTAWA, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ – Heading into the first game of the 2013
season, no team in the NHL is better prepared for traction than the
Calgary Flames.  To ensure fan safety, icy walkways leading into games
at the Scotiabank Saddledome this season will be covered with
award-winning EcoTraction – the environmentally friendly alternative to
ice melters, such as toxic road salt.

“EcoTraction offers instant traction on icy surfaces and is perfect for
protecting our fans from slips and falls when walking into the
Scotiabank Saddledome.  Because it works fast for immediate safety and
won’t harm concrete, footwear, or greenery, we’re very pleased with
EcoTraction,” said Rob Blanchard, Director of Operations for the
Calgary Flames.

EcoTraction was purchased from the company’s distributor
Acklands-Grainger. “We’re delighted to be a supplier to the Calgary
Flames and are thrilled to offer EcoTraction as a solution for fan
safety at the team’s home games,” said Eric Nowlin, president of
Acklands-Grainger. “It’s a great fit for any company wanting to save
money and ensure safety.”

Award-winning EcoTraction consists of highly absorbent all natural green
granules which immediately imbed into ice, causing a sandpaper-like
layer for instant safety.  Compared to other products, less is required
to cover the same surface area, resulting in less cost per square
foot.  Unlike toxic road salt, chloride-free EcoTraction does not come
with the aftershock of damage costs to infrastructure, will not pollute
water, infest soil, damage footwear, or harm animals.  It’s the only
product of its kind in the world that can also be swept into lawns and
gardens to benefit growth.

“The Calgary Flames are Stanley Cup champions and we’re confident
EcoTraction will perform to their high standards.  More
forwarding-thinking customers – from governments, to construction
sites, to homeowners – are choosing EcoTraction than ever before,” said
Mark Watson, CEO of Earth Innovations which makes EcoTraction.

Award-winning EcoTraction is sold in North America, Europe, and Asia.
