Who We Are
EcoSaveEarth® (ESE) co-founders, Jeff Dreben (cleantech entrepreneur and life-long environmentalist) and Alex Tilt (social media marketer and conservationist) formed EcoSaveEarth® to address the rapid shift in consumer consciousness away from toxic herbicides to environmentally friendly alternatives. As evidenced by the recent restrictions that California, Connecticut and many countries (Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, France, Brazil, Argentina, Bermuda, Sri Lanka and a growing list of over 50 others) have enacted to restrict the use of chemical herbicides. Jeff and Alex founded EcoSaveEarth® to bring a next generation of new and improved natural weed control products to the U.S. Our mission is to help protect our families and future generations from the proven health and environmental risks associated with toxic weed control sprays. WeedKleen® is proudly made in the U.S.
Consumers today desire lawn and garden products that are efficacious, natural and organic, safe to use and have minimal impact on the ecosystem. Given the urban water pollution problem that WeedKleen® helps solve, we welcome your support in advocating for a toxic-free planet for our families.

For over 25 years, EcoSaveEarth® co-founder, Jeff Dreben has devoted his career to the organic horticultural industry. Born in Canada, Jeff grew up wondering why he and his friends couldn’t swim in the beautiful St. Lawrence River surrounding the island of Montreal – turns out that at the time 400+ million gallons of sewage and toxic waste per day were being discharged directly into its waters. The shock of that experience drove Jeff to become a committed environmentalist for the rest of his life. Jeff and his colleagues have been busy pursuing a dedicated research program to create a successful, natural and effective weed control spray. With the success in Canada behind him, Jeff then moved to Florida where he has developed a next generation of natural and organic weed control products.
Fast forward two decades:
U.S. consumers are awakening to all matter of news outlets, social media and blogs advocating for weed control safety – pointing to scientific evidence demonstrating the risk that synthetic herbicides pose for children, pets and the planet. It was then that Jeff and his EcoSaveEarth® co-founder and fellow environmentalist, Alex Tilt – a seasoned entrepreneur, conservationist and social media marketer – had confirmation that after months of planning, it was time to launch their company based in Lake Worth, FL to manufacture and sell their next generation of weed control products made with organic ingredients.
