Innovator First Defence has formed a partnership with The Grove Collaborative to bring its patented sustainable pest control to over 2.6 million subscribers per month.
February 17, 2021 – 1-D, the nation’s leading provider of eco-pest control coasters, has announced a newly formed partnership with The Grove Collaborative – the world’s leading e-commerce eco-products store, distributing to more than 2.6 million subscription boxes per month.
The revolutionary stylish coasters, which are made entirely from recycled polymers and feature refillable pest-control pads, hold over 20 patents in the US and Canada. Randall Safford, the inventor of the 1-D system says “I wanted to create a sustainable, non-toxic, and highly effective pest-control solution to help deter and capture pests – but I didn’t want to be part of the problem of toxicity and pollution.” According to OSHA, 300 kg of toxic chemicals were released into our air, land, and water by companies globally in 2019. This amounts to an average of 10 million tons of toxic waste (over 21 billion pounds) per year. “Even our packaging is 100% compostable, fully biodegrading within 8-10 months” says Safford.
The system works for all types of pests through a unique combination of pheromone attractants, dark space crevices, and organic glues. YouTube Channel The Pest Posse recently completed a video case study of 1-D in senior homes and found that the coasters effectively trapped bed bugs and other pests 20%+ more effectively than toxic methods. The company has also recently done collaborations with Airbnb, Dwell Magazine, and Marriott.
The refillable system will be available at The Grove Collaborative (www.grove.co) beginning in February 2021.
