The Ignik Gas Growler Deluxe is a reusable propane tank designed to replace the single-use green propane bottles. Each time you refill the Gas Growler you are saving money and keeping five single-use propane bottles out of the landfill. It is packaged in a kraft box with a paper label, padded with repurposed shipping boxes and paper. All packaging can be recycled with cardboard and mixed paper. It can be used for 12 years, and then needs to be re-certified, but if cared for properly, can be used for years after that. It represents a huge improvement over the tens of millions of single-use propane bottles that must be disposed of every year.
Why are Green Propane Bottles so Bad?
Disposable propane bottles are a waste of resources. They only hold enough propane to heat for an hour or so. They are heavy, relative to the amount of heat they produce. They rust and stain your boat, car or tent, and you end up carrying dead soldiers a lot longer than you would like sometimes. And the one thing they should be good at--throwing them away—isn’t even that easy. Some waste facilities don’t want them. Others want you to puncture them. With what? Meanwhile the marine and RV industries use easily refillable DOT certified tanks. The Gas Growler takes the same trusted technologies and customizes them to make them easy to fill, carry, and store.
How do you know that the Gas Growler saves 100’s of Green Bottles from going to the landfill?
The math is pretty simple. If you do only 40 hours of heating a year, that takes about 40 green propane bottles. The Gas Growler is certified initially for 12 years. So 12 x 40 = 480. If you are a commercial guide, running a heater in your drift boat, that’s a lot of green cans to haul around or throw away. Many guides run their heaters 4 hours a day, 7 days a week during fishing season. That’s 100s of propane bottles per season. They need Gas Growlers, and so do you!
