When Gary began designing NexGen’s tree shelters, he knew he wanted to use materials that were ideally a waste product, plentiful, sustainable and kind to the environment. His research led him to cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), a by-product of the cashew nut industry.
CNSL plays in important part in making sure our tree shelters, spiral guards and vole guards are:
- Fully biodegradable
- Last a minimum of 5 years
Although it’s used widely in industry, and increasingly in medicine, CNSL is not well known. We’ve put together this handy infographic to explain why CNSL helps us meet our commitment to protect the environment.
