Help Your Customers Go Green, with Green Literature!

It’s a vastly different world than it was 40 years ago. “Tree-Hugger” is no longer an insult in today’s society- in fact, it’s those people not hugging trees that are chastised! Between government regulations to reduce emissions, and societal perceptions of corporate sustainability, being green is becoming more important than ever. The green economy is actually expected to get even greener, with expected industry growth over the next 5 years to be an annual average of 5.2% according to a study performed by IBISWorld.

A Natural Whiteboard Cleaner, Perfect for School Bid Season

A Natural Whiteboard Cleaner, Perfect for School Bid Season

Gone are the days of students having to take turns clapping the dust from erasers, or washing the dusty residue from the chalkboard. I sometimes miss the smell of chalk dust from my childhood, but it’s nice to know that students today are seldom exposed to chalk-dust inhalants, as most schools have replaced the old dusty blackboard with modern, cleaner whiteboards. Whiteboards are much easier to read, don’t have occasionally piercing screeches of chalk, and are much easier to keep clean. After several weeks of constant usage, however, even a brand new whiteboard is subject to ghosting, a phenomenon caused...

Clorox Innovates Cleaning with New Smart Tube Bottles

As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for,” but with certain cleaning products packaging design, that isn’t always true. Have you ever had to consolidate partial bottles because they were too empty to work properly? Have you had to tilt the sprayer at awkward angles just to squeeze out those last few drops or avoid misfires? Or worse yet, have you just thrown away the entire bottle with product still in it-  just because your spray tube wasn’t long enough to reach the bottom? Clorox recognized that this problem was generally universal when it comes to the current...
