Blue Guard Technologies Offers carbon monoxide Car Off

Blue Guard Technologies reported the development of a patent pending poison prevention system, coCO (carbon monoxide Car Off), which will prevent any accidental death from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by vehicles that have an electric fuel pump.

According to a release, coCO prevents carbon monoxide poisoning by sensing rising levels within a vehicle's cabin and / or within a garage, alerting the owner via smart device application alarms, and ultimately turning the engine off.

The company noted the patent pending solution will shut down the engine of any automobile that has been inadvertently left running in an enclosed space where the potential build-up of carbon monoxide would otherwise prove deadly.

In addition, the system has remote monitoring, emergency service notification, and theft deterrent capabilities. The system has been successfully prototyped and tested. The company is in the process of raising the necessary funds to start manufacturing, marketing, and sales.

Blue Guard Technologies designs, develops, and distributes products that save lives that could otherwise be lost due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
