Nikwax's Nick Brown in The B.O.S.S. Report

Nick Brown, founder of Nikwax, started manufacturing environmentally sound products over 20 years ago and is currently leading the industry in eco-innovations and persistence.

On the tail of the news of a Swedish study revealing Nikwax products as 100% fluorochemical free, the B.O.S.S. Report follows up with an op-ed piece from Nick Brown.

In this piece, Brown speaks out against the practice of manufacturing products, such as after-market waterproofing and care products, in a way that causes or creates harmful fluorocarbons. These fluorochemicals have negative impacts on the environment and humans and the responsibility starts with the manufacturer.

Brown also recently spoke at the Rendezvous about this kind of corporate responsibility.
