An innovative mind can detect a resource amongst rubbish and formulate a solution from scraps. Joe Davids spotted an unlikely answer to workplace hazards— coconuts.
From baking and cooking to health and beauty remedies, this versatile crop fills a variety of roles on a daily basis.

It’s estimated that coconut fiber industries across Asia process more than 70 billion coconut husks each year.

“Bar-B-Que sauce is easy enough to clean up when it’s on your fingers and lips, but it’s an entirely different story when a five-gallon jug of it ruptures and flows onto a warehouse floor. SpillFix was applied to the entire disaster area – from the pallet to the cardboard, the shrink wrap and the growing puddle on the floor. In three and a half minutes, the entire mess was cleaned, and the warehouse was restored to a safe workplace again — using just one product.”

"SpillFix cleans the spills up on our floors better than the previous current products. However, the cleaning has to be done correctly, this is a watch-out-change for our team. In the past, we put down our current product and walked away for a few hours or a day. SpillFix should be cleaned up right away." Read case study.
