Preparing a Toolkit for Cold and Flu Season

If this winter will be anything like last year, the majority of the country should be preparing for a long, cold, snowy winter. (Great for shovel sales, bad for us.) As you would expect, being cooped up indoors for months on end with the heat blasting creates a perfect environment for germs to shack up with their unwilling hosts. While the CDC jury is still out on the severity of this year’s flu season, it’s always better to prepare for the worst, especially considering we may be in for a rough season overall. In the sales and distribution industry, the...

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!

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. As the economy overall recovers, more and more companies are willing to spend a little bit...

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...
