Oil spills happen every single year.

Large spills happen every few years, from the 1969 offshore oil-platform catastrophe that dumped 3 million gallons of oil into the Santa Barbara Channel to the April 6, 2010, spilling of 18,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico’s Delta National Wildlife Refuge — from a ruptured BP pipeline — to the cataclysmic April 20 2010 spill.

More Information


  • The US Coast Guard has estimated that less oil is spilled in tanker accidents like the Exxon Valdez or Braer incidents than seeps into coastal waters and groundwater from land spills every year. Some estimates range as high as 200 million gallons annually on US soil and water alone and probably an equivalent amount in Western Europe.
  • One pint of oil can create a one acre slick on water. A quart of motor oil will foul the taste of one quarter million gallons of drinking water. Degradation of oil requires oxygen, reducing the amount available to aquatic life. On land spilled oil destroys plant life.
  • Accidental spills will happen. Fast effective spill response procedures are a part of the solution to this problem. Peat Sorb products are key parts in any response plans. They are easy to use, effective and disposable. The most environmentally friendly and responsible sorbent products available today.
