Partnering for Safety and Sustainability: eOn Mist and Goodwill Southern California 'Do Good'
Jan. 07, 2021 | 04:00pm
eOn Mist LLC, creator of the first TSA-approved recyclable and personal-sized continuous-spray hand sanitizer, has committed to support the 'Do Good. Do Goodwill.' campaign by donating 10,000 eOn Mist dispensers to help ensure the safety of volunteers and employees as Goodwill SoCal seeks to drive job creation during the pandemic.
"COVID-19 has created long-lasting effects that go beyond the virus itself – in our economy and in how we work, interact and coexist," said eOn Mist LLC co-founder Austin Hurst. "As a society, we've effected behavioral change, such as frequent hand washing and surface sanitizing, to fight the pandemic. We want to encourage continuing these habits as studies show that regular hand cleansing reduces school absenteeism by almost 20% and respiratory infections by over 15%, while unclean hands contribute to nearly 50% of all foodborne illness outbreaks. We don't care if people use eOn Mist, just that they keep on keeping their hands clean."
Patrick McClenahan, President and CEO of Goodwill Southern California, adds: "Lessons from the pandemic reinforce how small actions can contribute to the sum total of community's well-being. The eOn Mist donation of eOn Mist dispensers will help our employees stay safe, healthy and working – ultimately supporting a shared commitment to sustainable job growth and creation in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino County."
Since 1916, Goodwill Southern California has provided employment services and training for those with vocational challenges. In the months following the first California stay-at-home orders, Goodwill Southern California distributed more than $3 million in emergency supportive services to the community and virtually served over 30,000 job seekers with employment assistance, far surpassing service numbers from the year prior. Faced with a decrease in revenue and an increase in the demand for services, Goodwill Southern California is proud of the community support and partnerships that have emerged in these challenging times.
eOn Sanitizing Mist™ Hand Sanitizer was the first FDA-registered continuous-spray hand-sanitizer in a TSA-friendly 2 ounce recyclable format. eOn Mist is available online at www.eOnMist.com and at over 25,000 major retail locations nationwide. eOn Mist produces a fine mist spray with no drips and is easy to apply, especially on children.
