As sailors, Shaw and partner, Steven Brescia, watched closely as New York’s rivers turned from mucky brown to sparkling blue. Thanks to the Clean Water Act of 1972 and the hard work of activists, what was once a hazardous toxic mess, and just plain nasty to sail, is now the delightful New York Harbor – used for fishing, water sports and activities.
Inspired by such crucial reform and stunning successes, Shaw and Brescia committed to environmental stewardship and social responsibility. With the belief that everyone combined can help to keep our waters safe from future pollutants, they developed a zero VOC product that they call Pure Environment. All Pure Environment products and supplies are ready-to-use, non-toxic, biodegradable, hydrogen peroxide fortified cleaners with recycled and recyclable packaging, designed to address environmental safety and health concerns facing today’s cleaning professionals. All cleaning solutions are industrial strength, yet safe for our homes, families and pets.
