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.

Papyrus Joins Forces with Designer Lela Rose
Papyrus is looking to bring the “elegance and style” of fashion to its greeting cards via a new designer collaboration series.
According to a release, the collaboration marks the first time a fashion design house and greeting card brand have joined forces to develop a custom greeting card collection.
Papyrus said it is partnering with American fashion designer Lela Rose to introduce the series. Rose will feature her "sophisticated yet modern style" in the debut card and gift collection, slated to launch during New York Fashion Week. The collection will be available in New York City Papyrus stores and select retailers in September, with availability expanding to all Papyrus locations and retailers in October.
"The fashion designer collaboration series is a celebration of the commitment Papyrus has to the arts, including a focus on the fashion industry, quality craftsmanship and trend-forward design," said Christy Kaprosy, President of Papyrus-Recycled Greetings. "We are delighted to have Lela Rose's elegant line lead the first Papyrus fashion designer collaboration program, and we are excited to bring more fashion designers to our loyal customers in the future."
The company noted the collection, which draws inspiration from some of Rose's recent runway designs, consists of 16 cards and five gift accessories, including gift bags, gift tissue, roll wrap and a gift tag set. It also will be available online at papyrusonline.com
"I'm thrilled to be the first designer to collaborate with Papyrus on their exclusive new fashion series," said Lela Rose. "This is a unique way to showcase our designs, silhouettes and prints, and extend the brand into a new category."
