Doing Something Bigger Than Yourself

We want to tell you about one of our favorite charities - The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). CAF is built around helping people with physical challenges live the active life they want to live. One of the events this amazing organization puts on is the Million Dollar Challenge (MDC) with a goal of raising $1 million dollars to support challenged athletes everywhere. It consists of a seven-day long bicycle ride traveling the 620 miles along California’s beautiful coastline from San Francisco to San Diego. This year the event took place from October 15 to October 21. Action Wipes have been a part of this ride for the last 4 years, providing the riders a refreshing cool down during their lunch...

Studies show that with every 5 degree increase in...

Firefighter Wipes - How to Choose

The good news is that awareness of the unintended health hazards of being a firefighter is increasing every day. The more people know, the easier it is to mobilize resources to help combat the problem. The bad news, of course, is that more awareness means more stories are popping up that shed light on just how dangerous firefighting is...and not because of the immediate hazards posed by smoke and fire. A recent symposium in Boston showed that cancer and heart disease are affecting members of the Boston Fire Department at 2½ times the rate of other city residents. Another sad irony is that the fire retardants used on furniture and building materials are now being blamed for elevated cancer rates...
