Keeping washrooms odour-free is one of the biggest challenges at offices everywhere. Using air fresheners is not the solution because they don’t address the root cause. The solution is our OB Care range of products.
Everywhere you go, you will see the virtues of antibacterial cleaning being touted by all and sundry. But the entire antibacterial approach to cleaning is actually causing us more harm than we know and we need to ask ourselves if antibacterial chemicals deserve a place in our homes, offices and environment.
Many household cleaning products – not limited to floor and bathroom cleaners alone – are loaded with combinations of harmful chemicals with proven ill-effects on human and animal health and also the environment. Here are the most harmful ones you need to watch out for.
Chemical-laden floor cleaners don’t clean your homes. They disinfect them. Which is not a good thing. Because you are also killing off the bacteria that are good for you. And these chemicals are actively harming you. Which is why we innovated floor cleaning with ThinkSafe.
We live in a time where people are increasingly conscious of the impact of their actions on the environment and on personal health. And yet, we clean our toilets with chemicals that harm us and the environment equally. That is why we innovated safe toilet cleaning with ThinkSafe.
Superbugs and drug-resistant bacteria are one of the biggest threats to human health across the world right now. There is growing evidence that shows a link between antimicrobial resistance and the use of biocidal chemical cleaners. We have actually been cleaning our way to ill-health all this while.
In my previous post, I wrote about the potential of microbes to change the face of the agricultural industry. A critical player in the health of soil ecosystems, microbes are responsible for nitrogen fixation and phosphate solubilisation actions that nourish crops.
Our soil is one of the most prominent reasons that life is possible on this planet. By definition, soil is particulate surface material made up of various minerals as well as organic matter. Soil supports and nourishes plant and animal life by providing it with nutrients.
Before 12,000 BC, when a climate change event occurred, man was more of a hunter-gatherer. Farming was ‘invented’ in different places: in West Asia about 12,000 BC, in Africa about 10,000 BC, in South America and China about 8000 BC. From these places, agriculture spread to Europe, northern Europe, Sudan and Native Americans between 7000 BC and 1 AD.
Approximately 4 billion years ago, even before the era of gigantic reptiles, the first form of life appeared on Earth. A prokaryote – a unicellular organism that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus, mitochondria, or any other membrane-bound organelle.
