Weems & Plath's "SOS Distress Light" to Receive the "Safeguarding the Environment" Award from the Canadian Safe Boating Council
Weems & Plath, the leading manufacturer of fine nautical instruments, is pleased to announce that the SOS Distress Light has been selected as this yearís recipient of the Canadian Safe Boating Councilís "Safeguarding the Environment" award. This prestigious award recognizes a company who has introduced to Canada a boating product or campaign that reduces marine pollution and makes the sport of boating more environmentally friendly.
The SOS Distress Light was chosen because it is a safe, non-toxic, fully recyclable, user friendly LED light signal. It is a supplement to pyrotechnic flares on recreational boats in Canada. It reduces the contamination of landfills, ground water and oceans that happens through the improper disposal of expired flares.
"We are honored that the Canadian Safe Boating Council has recognized the SOS Distress Light for both its safety and environmental benefits," - said Weems & Plath President, Peter Trogdon.
The SOS Distress Light is the first and only LED Visual Distress Signal Device that meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements to completely replace traditional pyrotechnic flares. Unlike traditional flares, this electronic flare never expires which solves the challenge of flare disposal. To learn more about the SOS Distress Light, go to weems-plath.com.
