“We are all aware of the role hand washing plays in staying healthy and reducing illness. A majority of bacterial and viral infections are spread through hand contact, and one of the best ways to prevent the spread of colds, flu and other illness is ensuring that hands are washed,” said Jack McMaster, President, Preparedness Health and Safety Services of the American Red Cross. “If soap and water aren’t available, hand sanitizer is a practical alternative.”
To launch this new sanitizer, Water Journey has introduced the website http://www.save-our-hands.com. On the site, consumers will be able to purchase bottles or cases of sanitizer. The new hand sanitizer is also available on the Red Cross store website http://www.redcrossstore.org. Available in a variety of sizes from 1oz bottles to dispensers with refills, the Water Journey produced hand sanitizer is effective in killing 99.999% of known bacteria.
Michelle Thompson-Dolberry, Marketing & Business Development Senior VP of Water Journey, commented, "Most hand sanitizers contain alcohol, which can be drying to the skin, plus chemicals such as dyes, fragrances, and parabens. Alcohol may have the potential to strip the skin of its natural, protective oils, actually allowing bacteria to grow. This is a unique product that sanitizes hands without any side effects that could revolutionize the hand sanitizer industry.”
“The Red Cross helps so many people in their most difficult times. As a company we are always looking at ways to give back. We are so excited and proud to support the efforts of the Red Cross through this partnership,” said Francine Glick, CEO of Water Journey
This new partnership will stimulate incremental revenue for the Red Cross preparedness and response efforts.
