Having children with chronic medical conditions inspires me to do even more to ensure their surroundings are healthy and clean. Not only do I worry about germs but I am protective of others bringing germs home. I like the idea of "responsible products for responsible living." It's logical and with an ever growing trend towards products that end up possibly causing harm (lead based, recalls, etc), I'm more coherent to watch
what I'm purchasing.
Purely Products has that logo of Responsible Products for Responsible Living. Purely focuses on developing eco-friendly products for clean and healthy living for families while also helping children. Two of the products that I had the pleasure of receiving complimentary as my participation in Mama Buzz, are two that will assist in ensuing my children's health are first and foremost in my every day living.
The Purely handheld germ eliminating light uses ultraviolet light (UV) to sanitize surfaces that traditionally help to spread germs given the community nature of the areas. In our house, offenders include remote controls, wii controls, computer keyboards, sinks, door knobs, faucet handles and so much more. The UV technology kills 99.9% of terms that cause colds and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA (staph) without using chemicals or solvents. Having a daughter with severe allergies and asthma, killing germs is number one as she crashes when she catches colds.
The nice part about the Pocket Purifier it's priced at $29.95 and runs on battery power (four double A). It is available in black or pink and you can get 25% off until August 5th by clicking here for more information as part of the summer special. The other bonus, it serves as a flashlight so it's a two in one great household item to have and due to its size, it can slip easily into a purse or diaper bag for those trips to the store or wherever. It's easy to use and is made of plastic. I can't attest to the efficacy since I have no idea how effective it is killing germs but I have read that UV light does.
Another product by Purely is the Sunmate which retails at $19.95. The little hand held device monitors the sun's exposure for your family's protection. The Sunmate measures the intensity of the ultraviolet rays right in the palm of your hand. It's quick and easy to use and in fact, it was named "Best Beach Tech" by Shape magazine in May 2009.
How it works:
The Sunmate's indicator lights have grades of 1 through 5 that correlate with the National Weather Service Ultraviolet Index Scale. The corresponding number tells you what your risks are at that time. For example, a rate of 3 - high - means it's a rating of 6 to 7 and you are at high risk for UV ray exposure.
All you have to do is press the button at the top of the monitor and the LED indicators light up providing a reading. It's quick, easy, lightweight and portable.
A percentage of every Purely Products sale supports diaperLove, a non-profit providing diapers to children in need. For more info, go towww.diaperLove.org.
I would recommend both products from Purely.
One reader (US/Canada) will receive a Sunmate from Purely Products!
