All Natural Traction Helper and Slip Stopper
When winter begins, do you dread the snow and sleet, slippery sidewalks and driveways, and the mess caused by ice and sand used during winter? Do you worry about slippery, icy conditions? Do you wonder about the environmental damage that sand and salt can cause?
Sand provides traction, but when the sand is washed off of our driveways and sidewalks it creates a mess that has to be cleaned up in the spring. It builds up on lawn edges over the winter and kills the grass come spring. Sand creates particulates and dust that can add to air-quality problems. Sand acts like a sandblaster damaging the finish on cars. And ultimately, all that sand finds its way into storm drains and ends up in lakes, rivers and streams, increasing the amount of sediment there. This extra sediment harms the environment for fish and other aquatic organisms.
The reasons for limiting sand use are obvious, but what's a homeowner to do? The simple solution is AlfaTrak. AlfaTrak is the eco-friendly solution to winter traction control. AlfaTrak is a 100% green product that effectively prevents winter slips and falls without damaging property, harming our health, or contaminating the environment. AlfaTrak is the best "green" solution to lowering winter maintenance/liability costs while still being environmentally sensitive.
Spread AlfaTrak alfalfa meal on slippery paths to provide traction on ice and snow. Gritty AlfaTrak provides an environmentally friendly traction helper for walkways and driveways that won't damage concrete, flagstones, brick or stone.
Alfa-Track traction control and sidewalk de-icer couldn't be easier. It's fast, it's effective, it's non-toxic, it's biodegradable and it not only doesn't burn your lawn like salt and some of the other de-icers, it fertilizes it instead. This completely natural fertilizer contains nitrogen to promote ice melting and has a texture to provide traction while it works. In spring, the alfalfa serves as a nitrogen-fertilizer for surrounding greenery.

Why should I use AlfaTrak when sand is cheaper?
AlfaTrak is very comparable to sand, in cost. AlfTrak costs only a few cents more per square yard than sand. Adding in the damage to your lawn or property repairs you may need to make as a result of using too much sand and the costs are about the same. Taking into consideration ALL the destructive impacts sand can have; damage to your property, damage to the environment and damage to your health, sand becomes much more expensive than AlfaTrak in the long run.
