No Touch Door Openers and Reusable Straws Are the Latest in Personal Safety When Venturing Out


The world has become an especially unsettling place. A virus that kills thousands. Glacial ice caps melting at a pace never seen before in history. Unpredictable and extreme weather patterns. The list seems to go on and on.

And as the world changes and challenges multiply, we need new, innovative tools to help keep us safe and protect the planet we live on. Here are two exciting and affordable must-have tools when venturing out.

Safety No Touch Door Opener


Door handles, especially in public buildings, are potential hot zones for bacteria. A 2016 study the Worcester Polytechnic Institute found over 1300 bacterial colonies on 27 door handles analyzed from various points around campus. The study also showed that over 8 percent of people touched their faces or eyes soon after touching one of these same door handles.

Have you visited a hospital lately and touched a door handle or elevator button without the protection of a no-touch door opener? Chances are that you came into some contact with such potentially dangerous bacteria likeStaphylococcus aureus orE Coli.

Our no-touch door opener is a simple, affordable piece of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that everyone should carry. Acting as an extension of our finger, it allows you to press elevator buttons, door switches, and even ATM buttons or touchpads (all dangerous high-touch areas) without risk to your health or the health of your loved ones. And as its name suggest, our no-touch door opener allows you to hook-and-open doors without ever coming in contact with the bacteria and other health risks that collect there. 

Unlike other no-touch door openers that are made from aluminum alloy, ours is made from quality brass. Why brass? The natural antibacterial properties of brass have been known for centuries, which made it a much sought-after material for shipbuilders and marinas around the world. Depending on the concentration and type of bacteria present, brass effectively kills most of them within minutes of contact. 

Our no-touch door opener even protects you against dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacteria likeMethicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) andVancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA). In the US alone almost 20,000 people die annually from MRSA infections, so our no-touch door opener is not simply protecting you against the flu or cold but from some really nasty and potentially deadly bacteria.

Our no-touch door opener is pocket-sized, durable, and ergonomically designed for convenient, safe use. The rubber tips allow for safe use of all types of public touch screens and touchpads. And this no-touch door opener is super easy to carry with a retractable keychain carabiner. Simply slip it into your pocket and go about your day knowing that you never have to take unnecessary risk ever again. And what better gift for your loved ones than the gift of protection and health?

Reusable Straw Safe and Responsible Alternative

The day of the one-use plastic straw has passed. Prior to the recent movement to highlight the reusable straw as a safe alternative, over 500 hundred million straws were used each day in the US. In Europe, over 25 billion plastic straws are used every year. And because the majority (79%) of them are not biodegradable (resistant to the bacteria needed to break them down) or recyclable, they end up in landfills where they released chemicals into the air, soil, and water. Worse still, over 8 million tons of plastic (including straws) is washed into our oceans every year, where it does irreparable damage to sea life across the world.

Made from lightweight, super durable, and corrosion-resistant aluminum, our reusable strawprovides a collapsible (it’s telescopic!), easy-to-store alternative to its outdated plastic cousin. Without the challenge of managing a long metal version, this reusable straw is perfect for grabbing an on-the-go iced coffee – simply pull it from your pocket or purse, extend it to full length, and enjoy. Heading on a road trip or backpacking adventure? Toss our collapsible reusable straw in your glove compartment or pack.

We chose aluminum for this reusable straw for a simple reason: aluminum is the most valuable and easily recycled of all metals. Nearly 75 percent of all aluminum ever produced in the US is still in circulation today, having been recycled into itself repeatedly. The reusable straw you buy today could well have been a beer can, baking tray, or even car part (or all three) in is previous life. And once you replace this reusable straw with another, it will continue its life cycle as another aluminum product. A bonus feature of an aluminum reusable straw: you never have to worry about BPAs as you would with a silicon version.

One reusable straw, fully recyclable in an inspiring and earth-saving closed loop.

And we have gone the extra mile with to make cleaning your reusable straw as easy and hassle-free as possible. Not only does your reusable straw arrive with its own carrying case but we also include a specially designed cleaning brush as well. Because aluminum is naturally chemically resistant and extremely durable, bleaching your reusable straw for extra sanitizing is totally safe. Its also popular with kids and makes a great gift.
