Watter contributes to environmental protection by offering a sustainable alternative to the existing, toxic disinfectants. Its 'Nontox' disinfectant product is biodegradable, which benefits the environment, animals, and food quality, and therefore it ultimately benefits society. In addition, the 'on site' production of Nontox means that transport and packaging materials are reduced to a minimum. This provides a contribution to CO2 emissions reduction.
