HAYWARD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, February 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — APPLIED SILVER INC. PARTNERS WITH CROWN LINEN TO BRING GROUNDBREAKING ANTIMICROBIAL TEXTILE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY TO SOUTH FLORIDA HOSPITALTY INDUSTRY

SilvaClean Turns Textiles Into Active Germ Killers, Creating New Standard of Cleanliness for Hotels

Applied Silver Inc. (www.appliedsilver.com) announced today that it has partnered with Crown Linen, a premier commercial laundry facility headquartered in Miami, to bring its groundbreaking antimicrobial textile treatment technology SilvaClean® to the hospitality industry in South Florida.

SilvaClean is the only EPA registered technology that makes all laundered materials residually antimicrobial. Once laundry is treated with the technology, it becomes active and continuously kills harmful pathogenic bacteria, mold and mildew that come in contact with the textiles, protecting users and handlers from risk of associated infections throughout use of treated items. This is achieved through a smart IoT platform installed at the laundry facility that seamlessly infuses textiles with silver ions during the final rinse cycle of the wash.

By embracing new technologies and adapting to meet customer needs in the current climate, Crown Linen has established itself as a trusted commercial laundry facility for hotels, resorts and spas across the states of Florida and Georgia. They provide service to more than 180 hotels and 60,000 rooms by emphasizing four guiding principles: quality, reliability, cost reduction and customized service.

“Essential services such as those provided by Crown Linen are at the core of hotels providing the best guest experience,” said James Lake, Applied Silver’s Head of Customer Integration and Success. “Integration of SilvaClean into Crown Linen’s service allows them to immediately differentiate themselves by delivering a new standard of product to their customers and providing an added layer of protection for their staff in a seamless and cost-effective way.”

With SilvaClean’s seamless integration into its Miami laundry operation, Crown’s customer base in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and the Keys can easily access the innovative textile treatment program. One client, Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, a world-class beachfront health resort and luxury spa in Miami Beach, recently announced that it has incorporated SilvaClean in its housekeeping protocols and has pledged to help establish a new standard of cleanliness and guest experience in the hospitality industry.

“We are excited to partner with Applied Silver to provide access for our customers to new technologies like SilvaClean that increase and improve the sanitation of linens and other launderable items”, Pablo Lucchesi, Managing Partner Crown Linen.

The technology has proven to significantly elevate hygiene in the surrounding environment wherever it has been deployed, providing a safe environment for guests and visitors. In addition to giving guests confidence in the industry, SilvaClean also protects housekeeping staff, laundry staff and other industry personnel from the spread of these harmful pathogens. The technology is already incorporated in infection control protocols at hospitals and in professional sports programs to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections and dangerous pathogens, like MRSA.

The science behind SilvaClean is the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of silver ions. Silver has been in use since ancient times in medical applications (sutures, dental filling and other) as well as in homes (silver goblets, silverware). Applied Silver has been advancing this science for current applications for businesses with plans to make the technology available for all consumers in the near future. By incorporating the germ-killing power of SilvaClean into its state-of-the-art practices, Crown is taking yet another important step in its commitment to delivering the very best service and protection to its customers.

ABOUT APPLIED SILVER INC,
Applied Silver, Inc is Hayward, California-based that develops commercial applications based on technologies that harness the antimicrobial power of silver ions. The Company is focused on preventing infections through the use of silver technologies, including antibiotic-resistant pathogens like MRSA and emerging pathogens like Candida auris.

Niky’s Sports, California’s largest soccer retailer, finally halts illegal sales of shoes made from kangaroos

K-leather shoes

State’s largest violator of ban on selling kangaroo parts changes course after law enforcement pays a visit

We will continue to apply pressure until the trade in kangaroo parts stops at all retail outlets.”

— Wayne Pacelle

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Niky’s Sports, California’s largest soccer goods retailer, has stopped selling kangaroo skin soccer shoes (or “cleats”) through its eight stores, adhering to a state law banning commerce in kangaroo body parts after long being out of compliance, according to the Center for a Humane Economy.

Niky’s Sports CEO Luis Orellana, who runs the business with family members Eder, Edson and Marlon, refused to comment to the Center about the decision to halt illegal sales. Niky’s Sports sold more kangaroo skin soccer shoes than any other California retailer, Center investigators said. Niky’s has stores in Los Angeles, Lancaster, South Gate, Bell Gardens, Santa Monica, Long Beach and Woodland Hills.

Niky’s Sports’ policy change came after a warning letter from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, a visit by police detectives, inquiries from state elected officials and ongoing, in-person monitoring by Center volunteers.

With Niky’s coming into compliance, Xtreme Soccer is now the most egregious violator of this law, the Center believes. David Mora, who owns the retail chain with stores in Anaheim, Bakersfield, Hawaiian Gardens, Oxnard, Santa Barbara, and Torrance, admitted in writing to the Center’s investigators that his stores are illegally selling kangaroo skin soccer shoes and did not agree to halt sales. As late as Friday, February 19, Xtreme Soccer was selling a number of models of the illegal shoes. His salesperson even acknowledged to our undercover customer that they are illegal.

Pro Soccer of Pasadena, which previously offered customers one of the largest single-store inventories of illegal soccer cleats in the state, recently halted all sales of kangaroo skin shoes, according to Pro Soccer President Tony Tatikian.

A Center investigation in 2020 found widespread violations of California’s ban on the commerce of kangaroo-derived products, given the lack of enforcement of California Penal Code § 653o. Officials from California Fish and Wildlife and other agencies are now taking action to increase compliance.

“We documented more than 100 stores in California illegally selling kangaroo skin soccer shoes or cleats,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of the Center for a Humane Economy, “and we believe that number has been cut in half since we launched our effort to see that the law is obeyed. We will continue to apply pressure until the trade in kangaroo parts stops at all retail outlets.” The ban applies to on-line as well as brick-and-mortar sales.

Dick’s Sporting Goods, headquartered in Pennsylvania but with outlets throughout California, promptly stopped selling kangaroo leather when approached by the Center, citing coding errors with vendors’ software, and has rededicated itself to following the law. Nike.com and adidas.com have also said they will start following the law, after the Center’s investigation revealed their regular sales of kangaroo-based shoes into the state.

If Niky’s decision is replicated by other retailers, the impact could be felt on the other side of the planet where two million wild kangaroos are slaughtered each year in Australia largely for soccer shoes. California’s market is one of the largest in the world – and about 15 percent of the U.S. market for kangaroo products. Closing it off to shoe manufacturers applies pressure on the retailers to halt their involvements in the largest commercial wildlife slaughter in the world – far larger and bloodier than the infamous seal hunts in Atlantic Canada.

California’s groundbreaking law, which was a precursor to the U. S. Endangered Species Act, also protects many other species such as polar bears, dolphin, tigers and sea turtles.

U.S. Congressman Salud Carbajal, D-Calif., representing Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria and other communities, introduced the Kangaroo Protection Act, H.R. 917, with Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (Penn.) this month to establish a national ban on the trade in kangaroo parts. The bill, crafted in cooperation with the Center and its sister organization Animal Wellness Action, promptly generated discussion on the floor of the Australian Parliament. In September, Carbajal and two other Congressmen urged California’s Attorney General to fully enforce California’s ban.

Two Hollywood filmmakers made a short film released by the Center earlier this month revealing the true source of some Nike soccer shoes. The video went viral after numerous celebrities, including Ricky Gervais and Woody Harrelson, posted it on social media. View it here.

The Center recognizes Soccer Loco, with locations in San Diego, Carlsbad and San Ysidro, as a prime example of a retailer choosing to follow the law from the beginning even as competitors chose to violate the law.

“We are using the power of the California marketplace to push Nike and others to recognize that the era of making shoes by killing kangaroos in their native habitats must end,” said Pacelle.

EVIDENCE: This photo taken February 19, 2021 at the Xtreme Soccer store in Hawaiian Gardens, CA shows one of several models of illegal kangaroo skin shoes currently being sold by Xtreme Soccer, now California’s most egregious violator of California’s law banning all commerce in kangaroo body parts. This Umbro Medusae III Elite sells for $224.95 and, according to other store owners, is among the illegal models that turns large profits for law breakers.

The Center for a Humane Economy (“the Center”) is a non-profit organization that focuses on influencing the conduct of corporations to forge a humane economic order. The Center encourages businesses to honor their social responsibilities in a culture where consumers, investors, and other key stakeholders abhor cruelty and the degradation of the environment and embrace innovation as a means of eliminating both.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

ABC Certification Adopts BeVeg Vegan Certification Program in Egypt, Africa, and Gulf Countries

BeVeg Vegan Certification: globally accredited vegan trademark

BeVeg Vegan Certification: globally accredited vegan trademark

ABC Certification, Headquartered in Egypt, represents BEVEG vegan trademark in Egypt, Africa, UAE, and Gulf Countries.

ABC Certification, Headquartered in Egypt, represents BEVEG vegan trademark in Egypt, Africa, UAE, and Gulf Countries.

ABC certification body and auditors are trained, competent, and qualified to do HACCP, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000 and BEVEG vegan certification audits.

Before BeVeg, vegan claims were made loosely and with zero accountability, as no defined controls were in place to ensure vegan quality assurance at the factory level.”

— Mohamed Moustafa, Director at ABC Certification

SALAH SALM, EGYPT, February 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ABC Certification is an authorized representative of the BeVeg International accredited vegan certification program ("BeVeg") in Egypt, Africa, and Gulf countries. ABC auditors are trained and competent to do vegan certification audits under the BeVeg license. The ABC audit team is composed of qualified HACCP, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, and BEVEG auditors. BeVeg is an ISO/IEC 17065 accredited certification standard built in accordance with ISO/IEC 17067 as a conformity assessment program.

BEVEG – GLOBAL STANDARD FOR VEGAN CLAIM INTEGRITY & ASSURANCE

BeVeg is the world's leading vegan certification company. As the first — and only — accredited vegan certification standard in the world, the BeVeg vegan standard is the benchmark for vegan quality control and assurance, giving you the confidence you need to access new capital markets and establish new business that meets vegan consumer expectations.

BeVeg is globally recognized for its accredited vegan standard. The National Accreditation Center (NAC) accredited BeVeg as an ISO conformity assessment program. ISO is the International Organization for Standardization that publishes international standards. BeVeg demands research, inspection, verification, animal DNA lab analysis, and global supply chain accountability that meets the set out published vegan standard.

Protecting the consumer is the primary goal of BeVeg. "Before BeVeg, vegan claims were made loosely and with zero accountability, as no defined controls were in place to ensure vegan quality assurance at the factory level. This is a problem for animal-allergen sufferers who may rely on an unreliable vegan claim," says Mohamed Moustafa, Director at ABC Certification.

The BeVeg vegan certification global trademark stands for independent verification of quality and integrity. Products and services that carry the BeVeg vegan trademark represent unmatched reliability for meeting the strictest of vegan standards. The BeVeg vegan standard was drafted with consideration of GFSI benchmarks to ensure global food safety and quality measures are assured in BeVeg certified vegan claims, as many product recalls and known allergens are of animal origin (salmonella, E. Coli, listeria, etc.). In fact, the leading cause of product recalls is the presence of undeclared allergens, and common known allergens (lactose, shellfish, fish, eggs, milk, dairy) are of animal origin. "Vegan means without animal residue. A certified vegan claim by BeVeg is a claim trusted by consumers, as it is risk assessed at the root level to prevent and reduce the risk of animal contamination, which also protects the manufacturing facilities and brand owners from expensive product recalls," says Moustafa.

The BeVeg vegan standard brings unprecedented awareness, cleanliness, and safety to the market through factory controls, training, and skilled audits. For more information on how to get your products certified vegan by BeVeg in Egypt, Africa, and the UAE, visit www.ABCcerti.com to discuss with a qualified auditor.

BeVeg is headquartered in North America. ABC Certification is headquartered in Egypt.

Returning to in-person fashion trade shows: Brazilian Footwear brands at Atlanta Shoe Market and MAGIC Pop-Up Orlando

The Brazilian Footwear return to its first in-person fashion trade shows since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and came out with positive results.

NOVO HAMBURGO, RS, BRAZIL, February 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Brazilian Footwear, an exports program developed by the Brazilian Footwear Industries Association (Abicalçados) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), return to its first in-person fashion trade shows since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

Overall, the brands that attended the MAGIC Pop-Up show, which was held between Feb. 9-11 in Orlando, came out of the event with positive results: in total, brands made 111 contacts, of which 65 were new. In three days, the show generated US$ 615,000.00 (between orders taken at the event and expectations for the next 6 months) for the Brazilian brands.

The Trade Promotion Analyst of Abicalçados, Ruisa Scheffel, says that the results were above initial expectations with a return on investment of 9,000% to the participating companies. “The US market is recovering from the pandemic and this was made clear from the results obtained.”

In addition to the MAGIC Pop-Up in Orlando, Abicalçados and Apex-Brasil announce their participation at the In-Person Trade Show Atlanta Shoe Market with the following brands: Bottero, Verofatto, Pegada, Hanna Carmela, Shoetherapy and Petite Jolie. The show, which runs from February 20 – 22, is a must attend for anyone working in the footwear industry and provides a perfect opportunity for Brazilian brands to network with US buyers and market their business.

Recent years have shown that there has been a lot of international interest in the Brazilian footwear industry. Factors such as a favorable currency, more transparency about sustainable and ethically responsible manufacturing, as well as quality craftsmanship have created a business environment with incredible potential for 2021 and beyond. Ruisa highlights the importance of the North American show which in February 2020 generated more than US$ 1.6 million for Brazilian participants.

Busy, a conscious beauty brand on a mission to help women do more with less, is cleaning up the beauty wipe space. Made in the USA, powered by wind energy, 100% clean, and with 0% waste, Busy sets a new standard for self-care: one that does good by you and Mama Earth.

The line includes:

Body wipes that feel like a refreshing bath in a to-go-sized packet.
Face wipes with the same skin-brightening ingredients you’d get in a 60-minute facial.
Feminine wipes that balance your PH and refresh you naturally.
Deodorant wipes that work hard and keep going.
Hand wipes that are sanitizing, antibacterial and moisturizing.

Similar to the issue with using plastic straws, wipes are a rising problem for the wellbeing of our environment. Research done by Good Housekeeping shows that 90% of the wipes on the market contain plastic, which doesn’t biodegrade, but rather breaks down into hundreds of thousands of microplastic pieces, wreaking havoc on our oceans and environment. With 60 trillion wipes used annually, this plastic waste is a major contributor to pollution of our earth.

Busy’s wipes are made from excess fabrics from clothing manufacturers, giving the textiles a second life. All ‘mainstream’ wipes use non-recyclable packaging which is impossible to break down given the different plastics used in the process that bind as one. Most wipes are also made with polyester. As such, trillions of single-use plastic sachets enter landfills every year.

“My aha-moment came in my freshman year of Babson. I started working on my own personal care products to find ways to gain time I was losing while getting ready. It was a huge pet peeve,” said Jamie Steenbakkers, COO and Co-Founder of BusyCo. “A few years later, we’ve nailed what our customer really wants. We’re really proud of our new line, especially because it merges sustainable practices with skin-care benefits. We believe that personal care for busy women is long-overdue for an update. It’s time for women to take back their time,” she added.

Busy’s IP lamination process allowed the brand to introduce the first-ever curbside recyclable package for its size and purpose. Busy is committed to traceability and wants to ensure transparency in the process. The textile is processed at a wind-powered manufacturing plant with clean ingredients that vary by product. Some of these are glycolic acid, charcoal, AHA/BHA, prebiotics, retinol, caffeine, and squalane. Approved by the Credo Clean Standard Guidelines, Busy uses ethically sourced ingredients that are vegan and sulfate-free and that also offer skin-care benefits, specifically, for anti-aging, sun-damage, and moisturizing.

“Our body wipes are our best seller so far. Among many traits, they help improve the look of uneven skin tone, and address the damage caused by daily exposure to pollutants and sun,” added Steenbakkers. “Most importantly, amid the uncertainty of COVID-19 and this crazy time that has families facing additional stressors, our body wipes are an easy fix for life’s day-to-day demands. Whether ‘self care’ involves a nap or a treadmill, we refuse to sacrifice beauty and wellness to maximize our time,” she added.

Busy can be found online at www.getbusy.co and at major national retailers such as Amazon, Anthropologie, Beauty Brands, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and on-board at JetBlue (Mint). For more information please visit www.getbusy.co or @Busy_Beauty_ on Instagram.

About Jamie Steenbakkers

Vizion Raises $1.5M to Solve Ocean Freight Visibility Problem

Vizion is a API-based solution for ocean freight visibility. Vizion was created to solve for the lack of visibility in maritime logistics.

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, February 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vizion Raises $1.5M to Solve Ocean Freight Visibility Problem

Today, Vizion, an API-based solution for ocean freight visibility, announced its $1.5M financing round led by supply chain specialist Dynamo Ventures with participation from 1984 Ventures, Wavemaker Partners, and SaaS Ventures. The funding will drive the continuing maturation of Vizion’s software and the expansion of its early customer base.

Vizion was created to solve for the lack of visibility in maritime logistics. Stakeholders across the maritime logistics ecosystem have struggled with a lack of resilience and flexibility in the face of surging freight volumes due to the global pandemic. Underpinning this is an inability to easily ascertain the real time position of container freight, data silos among companies’ ocean logistics partners, and a resulting inability to proactively manage operations.

Vizion’s data solutions are changing the industry – its customer base of leading freight forwarders, BCOs, and TMS providers expect to manage over 2 million containers in 2021 using the Vizion platform. Further, Vizion’s data processing technology enables it to cover over 97% of ocean carriers shipments while ushering in a new gold standard for ocean visibility data quality.

“In making the Vizion investment, we’re excited to hit ‘reset’ on efforts related to freight forwarding automation. We believe that high level visibility data is the atomic unit that will allow freight forwarders to better serve their customers in an intelligent and overtime, automated manner.” says Santosh Sankar, Partner at Dynamo Ventures.

“The team and I are excited to work with our investors and continue maturing our platform to extend beyond visibility to predictive ETAs. We believe that there is a large and urgent opportunity to support the digitization of global logistics with very practical solutions such as our visibility APIs, data benchmarking, and predictive ETAs.” says Kyle Henderson, CEO of Vizion.
