Boulder Clean® (#2840) EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year Showcases
Natural Laundry Detergent Liquid Packs with Child-Resistant Closure at Expo East
Natural cleaning and laundry company focuses on environmentally friendly ingredients and child safe packaging
BALTIMORE, Maryland (September 13, 2017) – Boulder Clean, a 1908 Brands’ company and EPA Safer Choice 2017 Partner of the Year, will showcase new laundry detergent packs in flexible stand-up pouch packaging with the SLIDER-GUARD™ zipper to optimize child safety and family protection. Boulder Clean will showcase the product at the Natural Products Expo East Tradeshow in Baltimore from September 14- 16, 2017.
The release of the Boulder Clean Natural Laundry Detergent Liquid Packs marks the first natural product to include a child-resistant closure on re-closable pouches, putting Boulder Clean at the forefront of innovation in the natural laundry category.
The new stand-up pouch includes a protective feature in the SLIDER-GUARD™ closure system from Reynolds Presto Products. SLIDER-GUARD™ was developed to meet the criteria for the U.S. Poison Prevention Packaging Act for child resistance packaging as a defense barrier to protect children from accidental poisoning. When used properly, SLIDER-GUARD™ is difficult for young children to open but easy for adults to use.
Boulder Clean Laundry Detergent Packs are designed to go above and beyond the product requirements to meet a new ASTM Standard Safety Specifications for Liquid Laundry Packets to help reduce unintentional exposures to the contents of the packets, especially in children.
“We are committed to improving the safety of cleaning supplies in the home in every way possible. We chose to put our laundry detergent packs on the shelves with the Slider-Guard zipper as a safety feature to ensure that if a child takes hold of the packaging, they will have a very hard time getting their hands onto the detergent ,”says Carly Marriott, Director of Operations at 1908 Brands.
1908 Brands believes single dose units will continue to grow in popularity as people look for convenient ways to use powerful natural cleaning supplies.
“The laundry pack market grows over 15% each year and we want to be a part of the innovation – but not at the expense of a family’s safety. We love the convenience of laundry packs and we are excited to bring an effective and natural laundry detergent to market that does not compromise household safety,” says Marriott.
The American Cleaning Institute recommends storing laundry products out of reach of children and pets, keeping them in their original container and taking care to keep all packages sealed.
Boulder Clean offers a line of powerful natural laundry, surface cleaners and dishwashing supplies with plans to develop additional child-safe products and continue to improve cleaning supplies for health, home and the environment.
Natural Products Expo East show in Baltimore from September 14- 16, 2017. Visit the Boulder Clean booth (#2840) at the Baltimore Convention Center for more information.
