Fresh Dab offers natural alternative to bathroom wipes
CANTON, Mass. — Bathroom wipes may be a popular alternative to toilet tissue, but they can also leave homeowners with clogged plumbing and put strain on city sewer systems. A new product aims to provide a solution.
Fresh Dab Toilet Paper Gel is a naturally formulated, water-soluble gel that is applied to toilet paper and then used like a wet wipe. Once the paper is flushed, Fresh Dab easily passes through pipes.
Fresh Dab is also gentle enough that parents with young children or babies can use it as an alternative to baby wipes. Outdoor and travel enthusiasts may also find the product a favorable substitute for traditional wet wipes.
Fresh Dab is made in the United States and is available on Amazon.com.
Cardinal Health Foundation awards more than $350,000 in grant funding to combat prescription drug abuse
DUBLIN, Ohio — Cardinal Health Foundation recently awarded more than $350,000 in grant funding to 29 nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to the fight against prescription drug abuse, the organization announced Wednesday.
Grant recipients were selected from key communities where either a high concentration of Cardinal Health employees live and work, and/or where the community is particularly focused on addressing prescription drug misuse/abuse. Recipients have been awarded funding in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $15,000.
"We understand the critical role community-based education plays in combating this growing public health epidemic, and we believe that local, nonprofit organizations are key in the effort to prevent prescription drug abuse," stated Betsy Walker, community relations manager for Cardinal Health.
This is the fourth year that the Cardinal Health Foundation has offered this funding through its Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse Prevention Grant Program. All 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply, but priority consideration is given to programs that are specifically focused on increasing awareness of the dangers of misusing and abusing prescription medications and to those that educate communities about the proper use and disposal of prescription drugs.
Eddie Lampert sells 7% of stake in Sears Holdings
NEW YORK — Sears Holdings chairman and CEO Eddie Lampert has pared down his stake in the retailing company, according to a regulatory filing Tuesday.
A Securities and Exchange Commission filing showed that Lampert reduced his stake in Sears Holdings to 48.4%, from a 55.4% stake reported in March. That leaves him with about 51.6 million shares in the company, whose stock was valued at $50.38 per share Wednesday morning on the NASDAQ, down from its opening price of $52.62.
Bloomberg reported that Lampert had given up majority control due to investors pulling money from the company after its string of 27 quarterly sales declines.
