Tarpaflex First in Line to Help Clean up the Gulf!

Following the generous donations from leading tarps supplier Tarpaflex US, CEO Bob Page talks about his passion for the Gulf and his dedication to help support his home in Florida. The dedication goes further than simple donations; Bob is currently in talks with leading shipping giants UPS, offering a collaboration to get the heavy- duty tarps from both Tarpaflex US and Tarpaflex UK over to the Gulf Coast cleanup as soon as possible.

“It’s our eco system at risk here” states Bob, “The faster the donation, transportation and cleanup process occurs the sooner we can see results and hopefully a healthier, happier Gulf coast”. Tarpaflex have donated not only cash for the cause, the team has sent over pallets of tarps to the Barataria Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) charity, which pledge to preserve and restore Louisiana wetlands and barrier islands.

The tarps were shipped to the BTNEP locations last week, and the selection of tarps supplied will ensure that all the volunteers on-site will have a water resistant, tough, durable tool to assist in the rescue of oil covered birds and sea life. Bob himself lives in Florida and the Tarpaflex industry is based in Naples; the Gulf oil spill is a matter close to his own heart.

“We’re doing all we can, and the versatile nature of our tarp products can not only help volunteers when rescuing injured and affected animals, but the tarps can be used when the reconstruction of surrounding wildlife areas will finally begin. It’s in everyone’s interests to protect and preserve our already weak eco-system, so working in collaboration with BTNEP is a hugely positive move. The Gulf beaches are a remarkable work of nature, and we want to work together with one simple aim, to restore the normality of which this devastating mistake of man has inflicted upon our home”.
