Vegware visits North Shore Community College Sustainability Event

On Saturday, Vegware joined Zumi’s coffee and shared a booth at the Sustainability Event sponsored by North Shore Community college. The event ran from 10am to 2pm. Vegware’s full line of compostable products were on display.

Vegware’s packaing made from plants is completely compostable.Vegware makes tableware, napkins, hot and cold drink cups and takeaway packaging.The four big benefits of using Vegware are: 1 Low carbon – clean manufacture. 2. Low impact – we use renewable and recycled materials. 3. Low waste – our products turn back to soil. 4. Low competitive costs.

New Cutlery at Vegware US

New Cutlery: Here at Vegware US we have been slowly replacing all of our biodegradable products with superior compostable ones. We believe in what we do and because of that we feel we must do it to the best of our ability. Supplying our customers with the best and most advanced products technology has to offer. We do this by creating products with a full life cycle that is both traceable and renewable from start to finish. That is why we are introducing our new compostable CPLA Cutlery as a replacement for our previous biodegradable PSM.

New Compostable CPLA Cutlery: These products have very different chemical properties but carry near identical physical properties as our previous line but with added rigidity and usability. This new fully compostable line of cutlery pushes the boundaries of “green” products even further and brings you the best in what’s available today.

Haaga Sweepers Catching On

Our Haaga Sweepers are catching on: We love the Haaga sweepers especially the newest line. Unlike other sweeping devices Haaga relies on their patented disc brush technology. Here two specially made, opposing circular brushes cut under the waste material and whisk it directly into the waste container. Here, the coarse or fine debris is not “run over” or pushed around in front of the sweeper. Even wet leaves are neatly collected.

Twice the sweeping capacity with Haaga’s Turbo sweeping system: In addition to the disc brush system, our 400 and 600 series machines have an additional fine-particle roller brush that is mounted behind the disc system. This allows these machines to effectively sweep twice with one pass. Even the most fine debris is collected.

Haaga makes small to large sweepers. And Haaga makes manual and electric sweepers. Find the Haaga for you.

Picnic Time: a great Alternative to Plastic Plates, Forks, Knives…

BIODEGRADABLE, COMPOSTABLE PICNIC WARE FOR HAPPY CAMPERS!

OK, picnic time is here! And we are sure our customers would never want to  fill up landfills with disposable plastic plates! So we have found a solution… help protect the environment by using Vegware, which is biodegradable and ranges from cutlery to take out boxes.  Instead of that nasty bpa plastic lining, Vegware items use eco-friendly corn starch so they can be composted after use.

Walkover Sprayers Touch Water

In The Container:

The Walkover Sprayers are in the container and making the voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. It is expected that the lawn and turf sprayers will be in our warehouse by March 20, 2009.

Greenkeeper and Rambler:

The container has both the Walkover Greenkeeper Sprayer and the Walkover Rambler Sprayer on board. The Greenkeeper is a four wheeled sprayer with three nozzles. The Rambler has two sprayers and one large wheel and rolls like a wheelbarrow.

Wheels Turning Powers Spraying:

With both sprayers, as you walk and the wheels spin, the sprayers spray. Off course you can shut the spray off when you desire. The Greenkeeper sprayer can be seen next week at the Turf Show in Providence, R.I. March 2-5.

Ecopod replaced by Mode Recycling Products

Ecopod to Mode: For a few years we successfully sold a product called the Ecopod. It was designed by BMW and customers loved this product. Then the distributor just disappeared and we could never reach them again. After 2 years, we are thrilled to have found an even better, more sturdy product at a lower cost, the Mode recycling units.

Mode Offers Three Units: Mode Products offers three units. The top of the line is stainless steel. Next in line is made from painted plastic. The next does not offer the electric measuring device.

Mode Recycling Centers

Mode Recycling Centers

Bottle and Can Crusher: These units come with a bottle and can crusher which dramatically shrinks your waste. The units also come with a compartment for paper and magazines.

For those wishing to lessen their waste and keep bottles, cans, paper, and magazines organized in one place, the Mode is here.

Sort. Store. And crush your way to a cleaner counter top. The Mode™ Premium All-In-One Recycling Center, featuring our patent-pending compaction system.

  • holds up to 3 times more than a typical bin
  • crushes aluminum cans
  • crushes plastic bottles & jugs
  • paper bin to eliminate kitchen clutter
  • organizes all recyclables in one spot
  • Walkover Sprayers Spray Low To Ground Minimizing Spray Drift

    The Walkover Sprayer: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayer is a wonderful machine hand made in the UK. As you push the sprayer the wheels drive a pump which sprays. The sprayer is ideal for golf courses, tennis courts, and any athletic fields in which turf care is required.

    Minimal Drift: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayer nozzles are mounted on the sprayer just 5″ above ground. This provides an accurate spray with minimal spray drift. Most commercial & knapsack sprayers spray from around 3 ft height & cause major problems with spray drift, particularly in populated areas ( asthmatic effects ), but also dangerous for the operators.

    PSI: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayers operate normally at around 1 Bar pressure. This is
    the equivalent of 15 Pounds per Square Inch pressure (psi). The output of the pump is 1.82 litres per minute at walking speed of 3.5mph

    2 Nozzles: The Greenkeeper uses 2 sizes of spray nozzle. Both are supplied with the sprayer. A Red nozzle. The 25litre tank (5 gallons) will give coverage of 600 sq.
    yards = 5400 sq. feet. A Blue nozzle. Will give coverage of 800 sq. yards = 7200 sq. feet.

    Nozzle Size: The nozzle sizes are metrically calibrated: red is 200 micron & blue is 150 micron in size.

    Brill and Haaga at Last Day of Show

    Last Day: It is the last day of the show. Two of our suppliers, Brill reel mowers and Haaga sweepers, have booths.

    Haaga: Haaga’s booth is run by Mike Krumm. In photo below is Haaga’s new Turbo Accu sweeper. The new Turbo Accu  powers the sweeper for an hour and a half. When Mike demoed the Turbo Accu sweeper he did it on a carpet and the Turbo Accu sweeper picked up everything. The Turbo Accu sweeper can also be used manually. It takes 8 hours for the battery to recharge. Batteries can be easily obtained here in the states.

    Brill: In the photo above Lars Hundley and Steve Vesper are working away. They are the importers for the Brill reel mowers and the Tumbleweed composters. The Brill reel mower line will remain the same for 2009. In accompanying Brill reel mowers, Brill may start producing a lithium ion battery to replace the Accu battery presently sold for the electric reel mower. Tumbleweed composters are launching a new product which will enhance its compost line. The new product provides a catalyst to the compost process.

    Second Day at New England Grows Expo 2009

    Second Day: Here we are at the show. The pace and numbers increased dramatically today. The stars of the show are the Sno Wovel, Walkover Sprayer, and Rolypig.

    Mower Manufacturing: Today I was approached by an inventor of a patented lawnmower to manufacture his creation. It is a reel mower which is powered by two large bicycle wheels and two smaller gears which propel the spinning of the blades. This action causes the blades to spin very fast. We’re trying to compare the RPMs of our electric reel mowers with it.

    The Cyclemower: The mower is called the Cyclemower, and they are looking for folks who would like to manufacture the mower. The hope for the mower is that it could adjust from .5″ to 3″ and be able to mow all grass types. We’re trying to compare the RPMs of our electric reel mowers with the Cyclemower.

    Neptune’s Harvest: I found a liquid fertilizer and a liquid weed killer which can be applied  with the walkover sprayer. The product is called Neptune’s  Harvest. The products are made from fish, seaweed, and shellfish.
