Additional Information: 

Dustband Products Limited is a sanitary solutions company founded in 1908 by two entrepreneurial Canadians, Chester E. Pickering and George W. Green. Their first bright idea was to convince people to buy from them a product they were already using for free! The product was sawdust, which at the time was used as to clean floors. Pickering and Green added some pine-scent, made the sawdust green and marketed it as Dustbane Sweeping Compound. It worked. Over the years Dustbane has become a leader in the cleaning and sanitation industry selling environmentally friendly products for cleaning, finishing, polishing, scrubbing, sealing and sweeping in all sorts of commercial environments.
