Green Ice Melt: Fight Mother Nature with Mother Earth

\"BannerIn recent years, more and more manufacturers have developed greener ice melt blends to create safer environments and minimize damage. The products are an alternative to rock salt, also called sodium chloride. Although rock salt effectively melts ice and is inexpensive, it also causes many problems in the long-run, including the destruction of vegetation, erosion of roadways and corrosion of automobiles and metals. The costs of fixing these problems often outweigh the initial savings of using rock salt.

Natural Salt Alternatives

Natural salts like calcium chloride and magnesium chloride are safer alternatives to melting ice that are less harmful to the environment. They produce a smaller environmental impact because they release fewer chlorides into the environment, and they reduce overall chemical cleaning use because they don\’t leave residue on floors or stain carpets.

Potassium chloride is another green option for melting ice. When the ice melts, blends based on potassium actually feed the surrounding grass and plants.

In addition to cutting cleaning costs and fertilizing vegetation, green ice melts are safe to use around pets and don\’t damage sidewalks.
