Wearing the heat off with MiraCool
NEW YORK OccuNomix International has launched a new line of products to keep consumers cool during the hot days of summer.
The new MiraCool plus cooling bandana allows a cooling sensation to pass to pulse points that are carried throughout the body. MiraCool offers a variety of products — including a neck or collar bandana, headbands, skull caps, hats and cooling vests — that have been designed to meet the lifestyle and occupations of all age groups. All products are reusable, work without freezing or ice and stay hydrated for several days after simply soaking them in cool water for approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
“MiraCool products are a line of water-activated cooling accessories that can be worn at work, play, indoors or out. Although they look fashionable, they serve a very real function of keeping the wearer cool. And in today’s hot climate, staying cool is a priority to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke,” said Jennifer McCoy, VP marketing and product development. “With our innovative cooling products, people can feel comfortable, even on the hottest days.”

Fresh & Easy seeks to reduce water consumption by 30%
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. Fresh & Easy is seeking to reduce its water consumption with the help of a water-conditioning technology currently utilized by 37 of its stores.
The EnviroTower can reduce Fresh & Easy’s water consumption from 850,000 gallons to 600,000 gallons. EnviroTower provides a more reliable, effective and economical alternative to traditional chemical water treatment for refrigeration and air conditioning cooling systems, Fresh & Easy said. The supermarket chain said it will roll out this energy-saving technology to all of its 150-plus stores in California, Arizona and Nevada.
“Incorporating EnviroTower’s technology into our stores makes sense, not just as part of our commitment to the environment, but also to help us save money so we can keep our prices low for our customers,” said Steve Hagen, Fresh & Easy director of procurement and engineering. “Conserving water is a very important issue in California, Nevada and Arizona. We are happy to play our part in reducing our consumption of this valuable and limited resource.”
