    When The Build Up Needs Clean Up

    Tweet We recently watched a heartwarming six-part series on The Ellen Show called The Build Up, in which two design and construction experts help transform a Baltimore community, paying it forward for two young men who are giving back at a local high school. This was a very worthy project. A deserving school received a brand-new [...]

    Are We Having Fun Yet?

    Tweet Have you ever traveled with small children? In between pestering their siblings or needing a rest stop, they constantly ask, “Are we there yet?” A close cousin to this inquiry is, “Are we having fun yet?” What does this have to do with spill clean up, you may ask? Here at Impact Absorbents, we’re [...]

    Year Of the Pig: A Spill Clean Up Bonanza?

    Tweet The Chinese New Year, which begins in February, is always symbolized by a specific animal that defines the qualities for the coming year. It’s a very different concept from how we recognize a new year in the West, with lists of resolutions that are all too soon forgotten. 2019 is the Chinese Year of [...]

    Couch Potato Power

    Tweet It’s a new year, and for many people, that means resolutions. Making them. And breaking them. Getting in better shape tops the list for a lot of us. A number of fitness proponents say (and demonstrate via videos) how someone can get in shape while sitting on their bed or couch. Watch that protruding [...]

    January’s Invitation

    Tweet January is named for Janus, the guardian of gates, doorways, time, and transitions in Roman mythology. So it’s an excellent month to consider how you want to orient your business for 2019. According to the National Day Calendar, January is National Mentoring Month, inaugurated by The Harvard School of Public Health and The National Mentoring Partnership in [...]

    The Land of Nod vs. Nodding Off

    Tweet Sleep is a scarce commodity these days — even more so in winter months, when the sun is low in the sky by late afternoon, and truck drivers face a loooong road ahead. Short on shut-eye, they may have a difficult time staying focused on the road. That’s where a hat can help. Not [...]

    Celebrity Baby Boom: Who’ll Clean Up the Mess?

    Tweet Have you observed the recent spate of celebrity babies? Maybe there aren’t any more kids being born than usual, but their names are so unusual, they stand out. In any case, if there’s anything we know about children (and the Impact Absorbents family has its share of them!) it’s that they tend to leave [...]

    That’s a Wrap: No PFAs in Our Products!

    Tweet A lot of women are lipophobic (that’s fear of fat), which may prevent them from eating fast food. That’s a positive. Fast food is not nutritious. Yet a new study by the Centers for Disease Control found one in three U.S. adults eat fast food every day. That’s about 85 million people; an alarming statistic. Not [...]

    Smart Men Wear Aprons

    Tweet The word “smart” is somewhat overused these days, between our phones, our homes, our clothes, our health care…. So just to clarify, we’re using the word here in its original sense, without an app, when we say: smart men wear aprons. We’re not speaking of chefs, who are also smart to wear aprons when [...]

    The Long and the Short of It

    Tweet Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 4, 2018, at 2 a.m., which means that unless you’re out on Saturday night into the wee hours, you should set your clocks back before you go to bed Saturday night. Of course, “set your clocks back” is a little anachronistic in the digital age, when our [...]
