Surfmats are about as eco-friendly as it gets when it comes to Petro-Chemically based surfcraft. Since the days of early headaches from Vulkem 116, I have always prided myself on seeking out the most functional sealants for gripping mats with the lowest VOC ratings.
However, welding mats is an energy thirsty exercise with my welding table running at 750 watts and a 300 watt welding iron for corners. There's no getting away from it, that's a fair bit of energy!
But now the workshop has gone 100% renewable!!!
That's right. I've shifted over to an energy supplier called Bulb who provide 100% renewable electricity. Also, 10% renewable gas. You can see where their energy comes from here:
Pretty sweet and here's the really good bit. Their tariffs are pretty low AND if you live in the UK, you can switch over to them via this link and get £50 credit on your account. They'll even pay any early get out fees from your current supplier!
That's £50 towards your next mat! :-)
So... Get on it!
