ANN ARBOR, Mich. Ð National-recognized Green RVer Brian Brawdy will be here June 12 to tour Thetford CorporationÕs world headquarters and manufacturing facilities. He will then join Thetford officials at the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) convention in Grand Rapids, June 13-16, to promote both the state of Michigan and a green RV lifestyle to hunters and fisherman.
Brawdy is known as an outdoor adventure expert and environmental pioneer. He has appeared on CNN, Fox News, Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC, WGN, Fox, The CW and other media outless across North America.
Thetford Corporation has teamed up with Brian Brawdy through the a new product introduction initiative. Committed to developing high-quality green products, Thetford recently introduced a new line of Design for the Environment (DfE)Ðrecognized RV care products. This eco-friendly line meets the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) DfE program’s rigorous criteria without sacrificing performance.
Safe for humans and the environment, the five-product line includes UltraFoam Black Streak Remover, UltraFoam Awning Cleaner, Wash & Wax, Mildew Stain Remover and Hard Water Spot Remover. Non-toxic and biodegradable, they are packaged in bottles made out of recyclable plastic, including 25% post-consumer recycled content.
ÒSince RV cleaners are used outdoors, they must meet even stricter requirements than household products,Ó said Mary Burrows, Thetford’s manager of chemical development. ÒWe will continue working with the EPA to produce more environmentally-responsible products in the future.Ó
Thetford will host two press panels at the Outdoor Writers event. The first features representatives from the Michigan Assocation of RV and Campgrounds and focuses on the RV industry, with an emphasis on RVing in Michigan. The second panel, featuring Bawdy and Burrows, centers on going green for RV sport vacations.
