Kanberra® Tea Tree Home Products

Kanberra Wipes

Got Mold? Mildew? Odors? Stop the stink with Kanberra, a line of all-natural air purifiers made from pure Australian tea tree oils certified by the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association. Kanberra was first to create a water-based, chemical- and alcohol-free air purifier using these oils. Additionally, Kanberra can trace its oils from seed to sale— which means its products are safe to breathe!

Kanberra GelThe star of the Kanberra product family is the Kanberra Gel®, available in a wide variety of sizes for hundreds of different applications. As the water evaporates from the container, the tea tree oils enter your air and latch on to mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria, and more. And because there are no chemicals, you never have to worry about Kanberra products in the air you breathe. (2-Ounce Gel: Sku 106008, $19.99; 4-Ounce Gel: Sku 106009, $31.99)

Kanberra’s other products, Kanberra Spray® (Sku 106010, $8.99) and Kanberra Wipes® (Sku 106011, $8.99), do double duty! Kanberra WipesThey both clean your air and surfaces.

Kanberra SprayKanberra products can be used in numerous life spaces. Keep Kanberra in your car—whether it’s your everyday car or a classic car you keep in storage, Kanberra keeps it fresh and odor-free! Use it around your pets—did you know that insects dislike tea tree oil? Spray a few squirts of Kanberra Spray on your dog to help prevent fleas and ticks and keep the mosquitos from biting.

Kanberra Spray is also a great remedy for the “wet dog” smell that all dog owners are familiar with! In your home, keep a jar of Gel in your garbage can, diaper pail, next to a kitty litter box or dog kennel. In your RV or boat, use the Gel to prevent mold, repel critters (like mice!), and keep your space fresh all season long.

So, when you need a product that truly does it all—removes odors, repels insects, prevents mold and mildew— make sure you “look for the koala” with Kanberra!

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy Visits

epa-visitOn April 28, Cole Hardware was honored to host a press conference with the administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Gina McCarthy. Along with Rick Karp, EPA regional administrator (and Cole Street shopper) Jared Blumenfeld, and Greenopia founder Gay Browne, Ms. McCarthy was on hand at our Cole Street store to highlight the importance of using cleaning products that are safer for people, pets, and the environment.

The event was an official kickoff for the EPA’s new Safer Choice label, the first federal label for cleaning products, which makes it easier to choose products that meet the EPA’s rigorous scientific standards. The Safer Choice products are also less toxic to fish and other aquatic life, as they break down more quickly through natural processes, so they are less likely to become part of the food chain or damage the ecosystem. You’ll find multiple products on the shelves at Cole Hardware that sport the Safer Choice label, including some from Seventh Generation®, CLR®, and Ecos Pro™. Just look for the Safer Choice label when shopping for cleaning supplies.

Safer Choice Labels

COLE HARDWARE has always been a leader in stocking and promoting greener products for our customers. As part of that commitment, we are glad to feature products that carry the Safer Choice label from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Products carrying the Safer Choice label are safer for fasafechoicemilies, pets, communities, and the environment. All the chemicals in labeled products have been reviewed by the EPA to be the safest possible, using strict criteria for environmental and health safety and verified by an independent third party. For consumers and purchasers, especially those with allergies or sensitivities, Safer Choice also awards a “fragrance-free” label to easily identify products that have been verified as free of fragrance materials. More than 2,000 products, from almost 500 manufacturers, currently qualify to carry the Safer Choice label, including household cleaners, laundry and dish detergents, and floor-care and automotive-care products. A number of well-known consumer brands carried in our stores sport the label, such as Seventh Generation™, CLR®, and Bissell®. Keep an eye out for the label on products when shopping for safe and effective cleaners for yourself and your family. During the week of April 4, when the EPA officially rolls out the new labels, look for shelf tags highlighting Safer Choice–labeled products at our stores. For more information about Safer Choice and where to find the products carrying the label, check out the EPA’s website at www.epa. gov/saferchoice.

Solutions from Holster® Brands

New to Cole Hardware, ingenious Holster Brands products are silicone storage pockets for household items that you like to have within reach. Using them could not be easier—the patented design allows the holster to cling to any smooth surface by eliminating the air between the two surfaces and creating a temporary bond. They are easy to clean and move, so they can be used time after time for all of your cleaning, workshop, crafting, organizing, and even hairstyling needs! Holster Brands items are resistant to high heat so that curling irons or glue guns can safely be held in place. Once the bond is formed onto a dry surface, holsters can safely be sprayed with waWhat-and-Where-TUBter when used in the sink or on a shower wall. Items pictured range from $11.99–$19.99.
