SC Johnson introduces all-in-one cleaning system
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — SC Johnson is bringing together its cleaning brands in a new, lightweight sprayer.
The SC Johnson all-in-one cleaning system brings together Windex, Fantastik, Scrubbing Bubbles, Pledge and Shout Carpet. The cleaning system allows users to hold 3-of-the-5 concentrated cleaner cartridges at once in a single hand-held sprayer, allowing consumers to seamlessly clean each room and surface by instantly switching among the cleaners.
"Consumers today trust the same products that their mothers did — but they don’t clean the same way. Given today’s busy schedules, there simply isn’t time to be tied down by old techniques that haven’t evolved," said Kelly Semrau, SVP global corporate affairs, communication and sustainability for SC Johnson. "SC Johnson is committed to providing revolutionary tools designed to make life simpler and easier for busy families."
The available concentrated cleaner cartridges include:
Windex (for glass): Perfect for glass, mirrors and chrome — use it for a streak-free shine;
Fantastik (for kitchen): Fights tough grease and grime in the kitchen on countertops, stovetops and stainless steel;
Scrubbing Bubbles (for bathroom): Works on tough surfaces like tubs, showers, tile, counters and sinks;
Pledge (for furniture): Cleans and dusts all your hard surfaces in one easy step and is safe to use on wood; and
Shout (for carpet): Ideal for spots and stains on the carpet.

Safeway raises more than $10.1 million for prostate cancer research
PLEASANTON, Calif. — Safeway on Monday announced that its month-long prostate cancer campaign raised nearly $10.1 million as part of the company’s ongoing effort to fund research geared toward finding a cure for the leading cancer affecting men.
“We are grateful to our customers for their extraordinary generosity,” Safeway EVP and chair of the Safeway Foundation Larree Renda said. “Thanks to their contributions, we are funding leading-edge research at some of the nation’s top cancer centers and helping researchers move closer to a cure for prostate cancer. Our employees are important ambassadors for the cause and also deserve a great deal of credit for the success of this effort.”
For more than a decade, Safeway has dedicated the entire month of June to raising funds at its stores, production facilities and corporate offices for prostate cancer research. The company works with the Prostate Cancer Foundation to identify and provide grants for promising research.
Throughout the prostate cancer campaign, the company’s U.S. and Canadian stores provide customers an opportunity to make donations at the checkstand when shopping at their local Safeway, Dominick’s, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Genuardi’s, Vons, Pavilions, Carrs and Pak N Save stores.
Along with prostate cancer research, Safeway is one of the largest corporate supporters of breast cancer research, having raised nearly $94 million for that cause. In addition, the company contributes to a broad range of charitable and community programs and in 2010 raised or donated more than $200 million to education, hunger relief, health and human services, and programs focused on assisting people with disabilities, the grocer stated.
