Nationally recognized “green” RVer Brian Brawdy will be in Ann Arbor, Mich., June 12 to tour Thetford Corp.’s world headquarters and manufacturing facilities. He will then join Thetford officials at the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) convention in Grand Rapids, June 13-16, to promote both the state of Michigan and a green RV lifestyle to hunters and fisherman.

Brawdy is known as an outdoor adventure expert and environmental pioneer. He has appeared on countless media outlets across North America.

Thetford Corp. has teamed up with Brawdy for a new product introduction initiative. Committed to developing high-quality green products, Thetford recently introduced a new line of Design for the Environment (DfE)-recognized RV care products. This eco-friendly line meets the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) DfE program’s rigorous criteria without sacrificing performance.

Safe for humans and the environment, the five-product line includes UltraFoam Black Streak Remover, UltraFoam Awning Cleaner, Wash & Wax, Mildew Stain Remover and Hard Water Spot Remover. Non-toxic and biodegradable, they are packaged in bottles made out of recyclable plastic, including 25% post-consumer recycled content.

“Since RV cleaners are used outdoors, they must meet even stricter requirements than household products,” said Mary Burrows, Thetford’s manager of chemical development. “We will continue working with the EPA to produce more environmentally-responsible products in the future.”

Thetford will host two press panels at the Outdoor Writers event. The first panel features representatives from the Michigan Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds and focuses on the RV industry, with an emphasis on RVing in Michigan. The second panel, featuring Brawdy and Burrows, centers on going green for RV sport vacations.

Thetford is the world’s leading supplier of sanitation and refrigeration products for the recreational vehicle, marine and heavy-duty truck industries. It is a privately held company with eight manufacturing facilities in four nations.
