June 29, 2010 - PRLog -- The earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and BP Gulf Of Mexico oil spill have caused an influx of the general public needing tarps and emergency supplies. To many of us, a tarp is a simple and quite inexpensive object that can be helpful for protecting things during a home improvement project or for storage purposes. Most of us will have at least one of them in our garage or basement; the majority will likely have more than one sitting around somewhere. These are items that we do not give much thought about until we need them.

But did you know that there are places in the world where tarps can mean protection and shelter for some who are homeless? Not having one of these items will leave these people unprotected and vulnerable. In some cases, this could mean death for those who are extremely ill or unhealthy.

This is the case in Haiti, where many are living under these protective coverings. Eve those who are fortunate enough to have tents find that with the extended use, leaks and holes are developing, creating a need for more tarps. And while more fortunate areas of the world are working to provide for this need, it is so great in Haiti that many are breaking through and stealing what tarps are sent. And since the Gulf oil spill, the cost of these items has went up drastically, making the need even greater.

And while the 2010 hurricane season is predicted as being the busiest in years, southern America and many other parts of the world are bracing and preparing. What is one of the most important items for them to obtain? Tarps, of course!

Households, businesses, and other industries are in great need of these supplies. And as the poly tarp has taken such a great leap in price, the canvas tarps have suddenly become more popular. A less expensive option, it withstands any kind of weather and can offer the same protection as the poly version.
