“100% of the materials used in our back to school (mask-making) kits were …from deadstock (discarded) materials…to provide a sustainable mask alternative for kids in need to that they ….can keep their communities safe.” Jennifer Lee on Green Connections Radio. As we all adapt to the temporary normal of having to wear a mask to protect ourselves and others from the Covid-19 pandemic, Jennifer Lee came up with a creative eco-friendly way to make mask-wearing fun for kids and give masks to people of all ages in need.

“For healthcare grade disinfection, the EPA has certain requirements….that you test against, and those lab reports, we showed 100% kill in one minute, which is actually really impressive, because most toxic products they use in hospitals for disinfectants take 10 minutes, have to be reapplied multiple times to stay wet for 10 minutes, and only have a 95% kill rate and still be approved by the EPA for healthcare grade disinfection.” Rayne Guest on Green Connections Radio podcast How do you know your office or school or facility is truly free of COVID-19?

“In a (brand new) study…focused on the medical products industry – which includes medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biologics – a group of researchers found that…firms with female directors announced (life-threatening) high-severity product recalls 28 days sooner.” The Study’s Executive Summary, April 20, 2020… So, before you get that stent put in or new COVID-19 treatment or vaccine, find out how many women are on the board. It could literally save your life, according to a new first-of-its-kind study by a group of researchers from four top universities, which found that public medical products companies with more women on their boards recalled defective more often and much sooner that all-male or one-woman boards. Listen to one of the study’s co-authors, Dr. Corinne Post of Lehigh University, in this important interview on Green Connections Radio podcast with host Joan Michelson.
