June 30, 2015

Another incredible year of fundraising has commenced for the EGBAR Foundation, as it released its donations of over $120,000 to more than 40 educational and athletic programs across the country this month.

The proceeds raised by the 18th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament will further support the education of younger generations about the importance of protecting the environment. This year's beneficiaries include: Brethren Christian Junior and Senior High School, Edison High School, Lakewood High School, Leffingwell Elementary School, Mt.

All proceeds raised through the tournament will go directly to the selected facilities, courtesy of Simple Green®, who covered all event costs and provided an enthusiastic volunteer group to facilitate it.

Founded in 1989 by Simple Green Founder and CEO Bruce FaBrizio, the EGBAR Foundation supports environmental education and action through school curricula and educational programs throughout North America. EGBAR stands for "Everything's Gonna Be All Right", a thought process that FaBrizio believes is beneficial in all aspects of life. The foundation advocates a "think global, act local" approach to instituting change, showing youth firsthand how they can make a difference.

"With the help of Simple Green and generous donations made by people all over the world, the EGBAR Foundation has succeeded in raising and donating over $6 million to environmental education programs, clean-up projects, and disaster relief," FaBrizio proudly reflects. "It&309;s a commitment that the foundation has made and will continue. The money should be spent where it counts the most, on educating and empowering today's youth."

Over the past 25 years the EGBAR Foundation has helped to remove thousands of tons of trash from communities and waterways, replant acres of native plants and trees, support countless environmental awareness programs, and encourage thousands of children to be compassionate when it comes to our planet. The foundation hosts its own events in addition to working in conjunction with conservation corps, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centers, school boards and community groups, helping to instill the belief that making a difference is always possible, no matter how small the effort may seem.

Sunshine Makers, Inc. extends a wholehearted thank you to all who participated and contributed to the 18th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament. This type of teamwork enables the foundation to move forward in its efforts to encourage younger generations to be compassionate about our planet.

Simple Green Sponsors NRHA Scholarships
Manufacturers and Wholesalers Step Forward To Support Independent Hardware Retailers
Simple Green Sponsors NRHA Scholarships
January 9, 2015

Sunshine Makers, Inc., makers of the Simple Green line of household and industrial cleaning products, is pleased to be one of five companies to provide scholarships for 2015 attendees of the NRHA Retail Management Certification Program. A total of 17 one-half scholarships will be provided by manufacturers and wholesalers that have stepped forward as leaders to support the success of worthy independent hardware retailers.

The scholarships awarded will be applied toward a retail management course created by independent retailers for independent retailers, in conjunction with Butler University. The NRHA Management Certification Program is an in-depth, college-level leadership and management program designed to help trainees develop the skills necessary to meet the competitive market and grow their business as a whole. …Read MoreProfessional instructors will provide students with an indispensable, one-of-a-kind educational experience that will ensure them practical leadership and retail management skills.

Simple Green agrees with NRHA President and CEO, Bill Lee, when he states, "[Retailers] are the vital link to the millions of consumers that manufacturers and wholesalers need in order to sell their products." Suppliers are constantly in search of ways to help their retailers succeed in the marketplace, and simultaneously struggling with an independent retail division that is in dire need of a new generation of qualified, talented management successors.

Simple Green hopes its contribution will make the NRHA Management Certification Program more affordable for the future leaders of retail organizations. Innovation can only grow so much without a knowledgeable and devoted base of hardware managers and retailers working to extend its impact.

A Message From Simple Green Regarding Ebola Virus
Taking Measures Against Disease With Simple Green d Pro 5
A Message From Simple Green Regarding Ebola Virus
October 17, 2014

Without specific test data on Ebola, no one can make the claim that they kill the virus.

However, at this time, the CDC says: "Use a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered hospital disinfectant with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus (e.g., Norovirus, Rotavirus, Adenovirus, or Poliovirus) to disinfect environmental surfaces in rooms of patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection. Although there are no products with specific label claims against the Ebola virus, enveloped viruses such as Ebola are susceptible to a broad range of hospital disinfectants used to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces. In contrast, non-enveloped viruses are more resistant to disinfectants. As a precaution, selection of a disinfectant product with a higher potency than what is normally required for …Read Morean enveloped virus is being recommended at this time. EPA-registered hospital disinfectants with label claims against non-enveloped viruses (e.g., Norovirus, Rotavirus, Adenovirus, or Poliovirus) are broadly antiviral and capable of inactivating both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses."

Simple Green d Pro 5 is a hospital disinfectant that is EPA-registered to kill Adenovirus and Norovirus (listed on the label). The 10-minute wet contact time is more critical than ever and MUST be followed.

We will share more information as it comes available. If you have any questions, please contact our headquarters office.
