Here are a few reasons why you should opt for natural cleaning products for your business.
Good for our environment

OVERLAND, KS, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Benefits of Using Natural Cleaning Products

Every business requires routine cleaning to ensure the space is spotless and free of germs. To achieve this, use cleaning products and it is best to go for natural products. One thing that has been debated over the years is the use of regular cleaning products versus eco-friendly cleaning products, and this is for a good reason. Here are a few reasons why you should opt for natural cleaning products for your business.

Good for our environment
Biodegradable cleaning products are great for the environment. The EPA recommends the use of eco-friendly cleaning products that are low in volatile organic products like limonene, hydrocarbons, and glycol and are biodegradable. Normal products may contain phthalates and sodium lauryl sulfate that are toxic to both plants and animals. Danolyte disinfectant contains hypochlorous acid (HOCl) that is biodegradable and safe for the environment.

Allergen-free
All-natural disinfectant products like Danolyte are hypoallergenic. This makes them safe to use for family members who suffer from allergies. People who suffer from allergies should always use natural cleaning solutions since they are free of fragrances and dyes. This helps to reduce the risks of skin irritations and allergies.
Eliminate indoor pollution

business has many toxins circulating in the air from a combination of trapped air, cleaning products, allergens, bacteria, toxins, and germs. When using natural cleaning alternatives and deodorizers, one can reduce the amount of toxic waste and chemicals in indoor space.

Helps save on resources
Natural cleaning products like Danolyte will save money in the long run. This is because you will have a multipurpose cleaner that one can use for all cleaning needs rather than buying separate products. Regardless of where one wants to clean, one can trust all-natural hospital disinfectant products to help achieve a clean and sanitized space. The increasing demand for natural cleaning products has made them become more widespread and competitive in pricing.
The demand for natural cleaning products has grown tremendously over the years. As a result, there are a number of options that to choose from to clean commercial space. With eco-friendly products, one will get similar cleaning power but without the chemicals and without causing any environmental or health issues. If you are looking for the best all-natural disinfectant, Danolyte is the best choice that will give you a clean and hygienic space without harmful chemicals.

Nick Zhao of Berkeley Discusses Why Startups Help Fuel the Economy

Nick Zhao Berkeley

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nick Zhao of Berkeley has pushed for a better understanding of startups over the years, attempting to teach many in the business world about why they matter. But, unfortunately, some still look at startups as quirky and unimportant investment opportunities. Nick Zhao disagrees with this assessment. Instead, he believes startups help the economy and fuel its growth in ways that established companies do not.

Why Nick Zhao of Berkeley Believes in Startups
Every year, many thousands of new startups develop across the nation. And while many of these will be gone within 1-5 years, Nick Zhao of Berkeley believes that startups help push the economy to higher levels. Without them, the economy would inevitably stagnate, the stock market would crash, investments would fail, and the overall outlook would be pretty grim indeed.

Why is that the case? First, without startups, there would be no net economic growth in the market. How can that be true? Just think of it in this way. Startups bring a burst of new financial interest and many workers who can provide higher interest and production. Second, no matter their growth, current companies already exist and don't produce the kind of rapid increases you get with a startup.

Just as importantly, startups bring new ideas and concepts that help transform the economy. For example, look at two companies that were once considered quirky and unimportant startups: Apple and Microsoft. Both had the idea that personal computers could not only be affordable for the public but transformative for the world in general. And their vision has changed the world in ways Nick Zhao of Berkeley believes are apparent.

Startups also help fuel the stock market in many surprising ways. For example, new and promising startups always get the market buzzing, and investment may become hot and heavy, depending on the situation. Just take a look at the recent boom in the biomedical field. Once a somewhat neglected market share, the COVID-19 pandemic caused heavy investment in many startups, turning many into millionaires overnight.

This type of heavy investing is one reason why the stock market has risen to such record levels at points throughout the last few years. However, without this kind of fresh blood in the field, the stock market often stagnates and becomes less impressive. Thankfully, Nick Zhao of Berkeley believes that startups help minimize this risk and helps keep crashes from becoming less of a severe issue.

Lastly, startups also help entrepreneurs push for new market trends that keep the economy growing and ever-changing. Entrepreneurs almost always look for the latest and hot business model and find investors who can help these areas expand. Unfortunately, new and established businesses rarely get that kind of interest. However, startups help fuel these changes and make the economy stronger and more efficient.

NFC Digital Business card

Thinking about an offline storage device for crypto-currency? Gray Water Ops, LLC can design and mint a custom metal coin with your brand message and image.

I've been designing custom challenge coins as business cards since 1995. The NFC microchip takes an already cool, unique business card and adds a nice digital cherry on top. Just tap and load!”

— Keith Hanshw

HARRISBURG, PA, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gray Water Ops holds the patent for embedding NFC microchips inside custom metal coins. One of the uses is as a Crypto Wallet.

Gray Water Ops, LLC has been designing and minting custom military challenge coins since 2009. They mint challenge coins for military commanders, police departments, fire departments and businesses. Organizations and event planners have custom coins minted for members or attendees and some people sell them as merchandise items.

Challenge coins are small 1.75" – 2.5" diameter coins that are about 3-4mm thick. They are die struck from a solid strip of brass and each coin is plated, painted, packaged and finished by hand for most designs. With about 15 different finishes or platings, custom coins can cave their own unique look.

Challenge coins originated in the military, with different units having coins struck to represent their affiliation to that unit. It became custom to always carry you coin once you received it. The term "Challenge coin" came from the challenge issued from one member to another. At any time, a member could challenge you to make sure you had your coin on your. When challenged, the challenger removes his coin and slaps it down on the table or bar or taps the edge of the coin on the bar.

The person being challenged has 60 seconds to produce his or her coin. If successful, the challenger buys the person challenged a drink. The whole reason someone challenges another is because you DON'T think they have their coin on them and if you challenge them and they fail to produce their coin, they have to buy YOU a drink. That's where the phrase "challenge coins" comes from.

Challenge coins are unique because each coin minted is done for a specific purpose. It's a tiny memory vault of where you were and what you were doing when you received the coin. Some coins, like the Dick Kramer Studios 15 coin commemorative series are minted to highlight an event or collection of items or events. This particular series features Mr. Kramer's 15 most popular pieces of art. Each design is translated into a 3D coin from his artwork. Each coin is individually numbered and available to pre-order from https://GrayWaterOps.com/dickkramer

In addition to designing and minting regular challenge coins, Gray Water Ops is the exclusive manufacture of a patented challenge coin with a NFC microchip embedded inside the coin.

Gray Water Ops patent is for putting NFC microchips inside custom minted metal coins. As with any NFC "tag" there are a handful of uses. Some customers use them as a digital business card, storing their contact info on the NFC microchip. When a smartphone or NFC enabled device comes in contact with the coin, a pop up window displays an option to store the contact on your phone. By simply hitting yes, the name, email, website and phone number of the contact is automatically stored in your contacts, without having to type it in by hand. Other customers use them as a Doge coin crypto-currency wallets and Bitcoin wallets for a truly offline storage option for your blockchain. You have to love the irony of putting digital currency BACK ON a physical coin for storage!

A variety of NFC chips will work but a NTAG216 is currently the best option for both android and iOs devices. One side of the chip is shielded, to prevent the antenna from contacting the metal coin surface. A 4 color printed vinyl sticker is placed over the other side of the coin and an epoxy sealant is dripped over the surface to lock in the NFC microchip and make the coin waterproof.

The NFC tag draws its power from the host device so it doesn't require a battery. Unlike a storage device, the memory space is small and can only hold a few commands or instructions that tell the NFC reader to "DO" something like launch a webpage or open a Google map and provide directions to a pinned address. With some custom programming you can use them as an access device or key to digitally open a door when a NFC embedded challenge coin is placed against the reader.

When designing and minting custom NFC embedded microchip challenge coins, one side can have 3D or 3D detail with up to 6 enamel paint colors. The other side is a 4 color offset printed sticker that covers the chip on the other side. The epoxy sealant is coated over the sticker and both seals the microchip in the coin and makes it waterproof.

The minimum order for Gray Water Ops, LLC patented NFC coins is 250 if you were thinking about having some made for your business or organization. You can reach out through their website at GrayWaterOps.com

Veteran owned and operated, with a customer list from the president of NASCAR, Anheuser-Busch, all branches of the US military, ATF, FBI, NCIS, AFSOC, MARSOC, SOCOM, state and local police departments across the United States and military units deployed around the world. They've minted international coins for Wargaming (World of Tanks and World of Warships), and more.

The idea came from solving a problem. We were working on a coin design for a magic trick. The old overlay process would print an image on a thin piece of tin and when it contacted the chip it grounded it out and it wouldn't work. We had to find a way to fit the chip in the coin, keep it from grounding out on either side and still have it function as expected.

We tried it with a shielded NFC tag, placing a thin layer of foam between the metal coin and the chip and using a thin sticker instead of a piece of tin. IT worked great! The next wait was waiting for iOs to open up access to NFC features on the iphone! There were only a handful of android smart devices that were able to read the coins so having a wider customer base was still in the distance. Once iOs unlocked the NFC capabilities, it opened up the ability to program your coin to work with your device.
If you’re interested in more information about having a custom NFC challenge coin minted, please contact us through our custom coin quote form.

"The Mustangs" takes audiences on an odyssey throughout America to places few people have seen or even know about. There are more than 80,000 wild horses on our public lands and more than 50,000 in government corrals.

“America’s wild horses are fighting their last stand,” said Executive Producer Robert Redford. “Increasing competition for our natural resources threatens our wilderness areas, our wild horses and other wildlife species. Horses are interwoven into the very fabric of what is America. What threatens them threatens us all.”

The film features music by Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris and the original song “Never Gonna Tame You,” performed by Platinum-selling artist Blanco Brown and written by iconic songwriter Diane Warren.

"The Mustangs" is told as an American adventure. Centered around the history and current situation of these iconic animals, the film features an array of stories about individuals and groups that are working with wild horses, including an organization that pairs mustangs and veterans with PTSD. Other stories include a photographer that documents wild horses on the range, a group that helps manage population growth with fertility control, the legacy of a woman named “Wild Horse Annie” who mobilized an army of children 50 years ago to protect wild horses and save them from the brink of extinction and a sanctuary that reunites mustangs that were rounded up in the wild.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Philipps, who is featured in the film, says, "The wild horse is so ingrained in the American imagination that even for those who have never seen one know what it stands for: fierce independence, unbridled freedom, the bedrock ideals of the nation. From car ads to high school mascots, the wild horse – popularly known as the mustang – is the enduring icon of America. But in modern times it has become entangled in controversy and bureaucracy, and now its future is in question."

“America’s wild horses represent freedom, strength and resilience,” said Producer and Co-Director Steven Latham. “This film takes audiences on an exciting journey; a journey that we as filmmakers went on, to understand the challenges the Mustang faces to thrive in a changing world.”

The film will also be showing in October at Film Fest Tucson, Film Fest 919 in Chapel Hill, NC and the Newport Beach Film Festival.

“The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses” is produced by Steven Latham Productions, distributed by Virgil Films, directed by Steven Latham and Conrad Stanley, co-produced by Diane Warren, cinematography by Brian Pratt and edited by Conrad Stanley.
