The Boot Buddy was proudly launched in March this year at the Sports Merchandise and Marketing Exhibition. This brilliant idea came from an 11 year old boy who disliked being told to clean his football boots!
It is quick, convenient and easy to us.
The Boot Buddy holds 300ml of water and by squeezing the body whilst scrubbing with the bristles; it enables the consumer to remove the dirt quickly and efficiently. For those stubborn places, in grooves or around studs, it comes complete with a scraper at the other end.
Environmental factors were major criteria for this company. This tool uses a controlled amount of water with minimal wastage. Teaming up with Curtis Packaging was the perfect match. Using carton packaging from an environmentally sustainable company made sense.
With this in mind we advised FSC accredited materials as well as choosing carbon balanced boards which has had its footprint measured and calculated through the World Land Trust, enabling the carton to carry the World Land Trust Logo. By doing this Boot Buddy has helped the WLT preserve areas of endangered forests. Keeping the carton environmentally friendly, vegetable inks and a water based stain varnish completed the process.
The makers of Boot buddy very kindly gave a couple to be given away at the Lingfield under 12’s football awards in May.
