Sanitize Naturally and Sustainably with Save the Globe
Facing the Pandemic: Navigating the Global Impact of COVID-19 on Health and Society
The COVID-19 global pandemic has affected almost each and every one of us. As of writing, nearly 30 million people have contracted the virus, and almost a million have succumbed to it. Surely, it’s like our world stopped, and across nations, both healthcare and economies are struggling. As we wait for the arrival of a vaccine, the best we can do is survive by keeping ourselves and the people around us healthy.
Natural, Flowing Water
By now we know that the best ways to fend off coronavirus are to practice social distancing and hand and respiratory hygiene. But with the uncertain ways the virus can seep its way into our homes and bodies, it’s essential that we go the extra mile when it come to sanitation. Save the Globe is a multipurpose sanitizer or purifier that’s organic and non-toxic. It is made from Japanese hot spring water that works great as a natural cleanser. The Japanese have a long history of bathing in hot springs as a way to detoxify and to free themselves from ailment. The popularity of hot springs, or onsen is attributed to its many health benefits like improved metabolism and arthritis relief, among many others. It is embedded in Japanese culture and psyche that even today, the Japanese keep this tradition alive.
Save the Globe uses water from onsen, which flows naturally from the volcanoes at Beppu, Japan. Coming from underground, these waters accumulate a rich mixture of minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are proven safe, and even beneficial, for our bodies. The mineral water is odorless, organic and possesses natural negative ions, further proving its safety as a household product.
The Many Hands that Handle Food Production
Commercial production of foods is a long process starting from planting to harvest and packaging then distribution. These processes involve the use of industrial-grade chemicals to speed-up or facilitate smoother production. As a consequence, these harmful chemicals leave residues that end up in our bodies as we unknowingly consume them through foods. Some of the most common chemicals used right at the beginning of production are herbicides and fungicides that help to improve crop yields and protect from fungal rot. Overtime, these chemicals have gotten greater scrutiny from governments, causing them to get better at targeting pests without causing adverse effects on humans and the environment. However, pesticides are still found to be present in produce and are associated with some cancers and neurodevelopmental diseases. Moreover, unsanitary practices in storage or food handling on any of the steps in production lead to contaminated and illness-causing foods.
As an Eco Purifier, Save the Globe can be used to purify our food. The highly concentrated mineral water can be diluted 20 times to remove residual pesticides on fruits, vegetables and grains. It can also be used to remove harmful bacteria from meats and fish such as Haemophilus Influenzae. Save the Globe ensures that the food you put into your body is safe and clean, while also lengthening the freshness of your food. It is found to rid produce of pesticides at up to 97%, according to Japanese microbial test reports.
Unsanitary Food Processes can make you sick
The World Health Organization (WHO) records 600 million people yearly who catch illnesses due to contaminated food and 420,000 deaths. Unsanitary food causes more than 200 diseases—ranging from diarrhea to cancers. WHO also found that 40% of foodborne disease-related deaths are children under 5 years old. The data doesn’t lie, now more than ever, we must be proactive when it comes to ensuring the safety of the food we put in our bodies. To have a better chance at fighting coronavirus, we must take care of our immune systems by consuming healthy and safe food.
At home, chemicals like alcohol, chlorine and different types of bleach are known to be harmful not just for the environment, but also to our bodies. Certainly, the pandemic has heightened the population’s use of commercial disinfectants, all formulated with dangerous chemicals that make their way into rivers, oceans, lakes, ponds and groundwater. The presence of these pollutants have long-term effects on our ecology. They can potentially disrupt marine life, poisoning fish and corals, and circle back to us humans as we consume seafood and water. Furthermore, bleach has a ton of side-effects, it’s always labeled as highly toxic and dangerous to our health. Some known effects include respiratory illness, skin burns and allergies.
Cleaning can make you sick too
It's been found that alcohol and disinfectant ingredients are absorbed into the body and cause various diseases. A test run by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed high levels of bactericidal ingredients in human blood and urine, as caused by alcohols. Moreover, alcohol-based disinfectants are known to cause irritation to mucous membranes and wound sites.
By cleaning with bleach and alcohol, we get all these unwanted consequences to our health and environment, when in the first place, we clean to avoid illness-causing germs and viruses. So how then do we clean without worrying about the underlying dangers of harmful chemicals? After undergoing rigorous microbial tests in Japan, that in 15 seconds, Save the Globe eliminates 99.99% of bacteria, germs and viruses, namely E.coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Vibrio Parahaemolyticus and Staph infection-causing bacteria.
Our Better Alternative
Compared to alcohol and chlorine, Save the Globe is harmless to skin and body, is non-flammable and harmless to metal surfaces and resin, all while keeping the same level disinfection power and cleansing strength as alcohol and chlorine have. It can be used to clean bathrooms, furniture, appliances and even our hands. It is proven safe for pets and can clean dirty objects common in households.
Save the Globe proves its purifying and sanitation strengths across various uses in households and industrial use. Save the Globe packs the cleaning properties of commercially available cleaners without the environmental and physical repercussions. Because of its safety and versatility, Save the Globe is well on its way to save millions of lives all over the world. Beyond the age of COVID-19, Save the Globe will continue to cleanse our food of unwanted viruses, germs and bacteria. The safety of our food eliminates the chances of getting sick from contaminated food.
