Some of our products are designed to directly reduce the amount of plastic and/or hazardous waste: - The Mark-Lite product line provides an environmentally friendly Chemical Lightstick Alternative™. Plus, the Mark-Lite helps reduce operation cost by 80% as well. Many Diving resort destinations have banned the use of chemical sticks as a result of us offering a reusable alternative. - Our ELZ, Traffic Strobes, and Marine SOS strobe products reduce or eliminate the need for chemical incendiary flares, reducing hazardous combustion products, and hazardous waste of date-expired, unused flares.

(Weems & Plath is the current exclusive distributor). We are currently shipping about 20,000 per year (confidential). This has saved 300,000 lbs. of hazardous waste (expired flares).
