While other eco-friendly products try to replace salt with expensive, messy and ineffective alternatives, we’ve found a way to use the benefits of salt in a reduced and contained amount that works for everyone and the environment.

The Saltnets team launched their Indiegogo campaign today and is looking to raise a total of $25K to help cover the packaging costs of their ice- and snow-melting mats. These reusable outdoor snow-melting mats provide a clean, controlled release of salt, eliminating waste and the toxic effect on plants, while leaving entranceways mess free.
Saltnets are the world’s first ice- and snow-melting agent containment and delivery system. Each mat captures corrosive salts inside a tough, woven nylon mat, eliminating the messy entrances, walkways and steps that come with dispersing loose salt. By eliminating the wasted melting agent, Saltnets keep unnecessary runoff from entering local waterways and protect plants and aquatic life from the harmful effects of over-salting. The mats also won’t activate unless moisture is present and will dry once any moisture is gone, keeping any excess salt inside.
“While we originally sought out to create a cool, niche product, we soon realized the ecological benefits that Saltnets provided,” project creator Jason Mitchell said. “While other eco-friendly products try to replace salt with expensive, messy and ineffective alternatives, we’ve found a way to use the benefits of salt in a reduced and contained amount that works for everyone and the environment.”
Saltnets have the ability to protect pets by keeping rock salt from getting stuck in their paws, as well as by preventing them from eating the salt that can cause severe illness. These winter mats will also keep walkways and steps free of salt debris and prevent damaging expensive floors and carpets. Additionally, individuals can strategically place Saltnets to keep large areas clear without having to do any shoveling.
Saltnets are available in two sizes, a standard 15.5” x 27.5” and a stair-tread 9” x 27.5”. Early adopters can purchase a standard Saltnet mat on Indiegogo for $25, or a stair-tread mat for $15, which is 50% off the future retail price. Decorative rubber bases can also be purchased for $20.
