The First Non-Toxic, Biodegradable Fire-Block Gel

Each year, there are over 1 million fires in the U.S. Our fire departments spend $1 billion annually on additive–laden flame retardants that are TOXIC to our first responders; POLLUTING our ground water systems; and THREATENING wildlife habitats and species.

RISING TEMPERATURES AND DROUGHT HAVE THE WORLD POISED FOR UNPRECEDENTED WILDFIRES AND CHEMICAL DUMPING.

Since 1970, the fire season in the Western U.S. has increased by 78 days.

In the past decade, three U.S. wildfires burned 9 million acres.

In 2008, more than 50 million gallons of toxic, treated water were used to treat wildland fires in California alone.

In 2010, a U.S. Federal District court judge ruled that the U.S. Forest Service violated the Environmental Policy Act by using aircraft to dump toxic chemicals on wildfires. But the spraying and dumping continues.
