With the help of a number of well-known faces from across the construction industry Geocel has launched the ecoSEAL Challenge. Part of a six-month campaign to encourage those in the trade to reduce their plastic waste, the company is offering tradespeople the chance to take up the challenge and try the ecoSEAL system for themselves, for free.
A number of trade influencers have already taken the challenge and documented their experiences, including Julian Perryman, Roger Bisby and Wayne De Wet.
Now Geocel would like to give anyone in the trade the chance to try the innovative system for themselves and pledge to reduce their plastic waste. Those that are interested will be sent an ecoSEAL product, to try it for free. Participants will be able to choose from Painters Mate, DOWSIL ecoSEAL 785+, DOWSIL ecoSEAL 796, DOWSIL ecoSEAL 799 or Geocel ecoSEAL THE WORKS PRO sealant and adhesive – and they will also receive an ecoSEAL sleeve, which can be used up to 75 times.
Recipients will be encouraged to film their own product review and post it to Geocel’s social media channels for their chance to win a £500 voucher. A new winner will be chosen by Geocel every month.
Laura Hettenbach, Senior Trade Brands Campaign Manager at Geocel commented: “We’re excited to be working with a number of well-known faces to encourage the wider sector to do their bit to reduce plastic waste. With over 100 million plastic cartridges ending up in landfill every year, it is vital the construction industry works to become more sustainable.
“Sign up today to try the ecoSEAL system for free and play your part.”
The ecoSEAL sleeve can be used an average of 75 times and can be recycled at the end of its usable lifespan. In addition, once empty, ecoSEAL foils are eight times smaller than traditional cartridges, meaning less waste is sent to landfill, ultimately reducing disposal costs on larger projects.
