What is Hunter Industrial’s alliance with the Environmental Products Index? EPI is the developer, licensor and distributor of Totally Degradable Plastic Additives (TDPA®). EPI’s technology has been designed to control and manage the lifetime of products made from the most common plastics used by modern society. Conventional plastics, when discarded, persist for a long time in the environment. Our garbage bags utilise a special ingredient (epi) that accelerate the rate of the degradation by several orders of magnitude. This means the garbage bags degrade and physically disintegrate more rapidly allowing garbage to decompose.

As part of Channel Nine’s A Current Affair program on Thursday 04 April 2013, there was a news item highlighting a potential lethal strain of the flu this season.
As you will see in the attached video, Dr Allan Hampson, Chairman of the Influenza Specialist Group (ISG) confirms the number of flu cases in Australia is increasing year on year. In 2011, there were 20,103 laboratory confirmed cases of the flu, in 2012 this swelled to 38,480 cases and in 2013 there have already been two thousand confirmed cases without winter even hitting us yet. Dr Hampson says this figure is alot for what we would normally see this time of year.
There are three strains of Flu – Swine Flu, Influenza A and Influenza B – and as reiterated in the news story, one of the best ways to protect yourself is being prudent with hand hygiene, especially in public places.
The GOJO and PURELL products will provide the perfect solution to protect your health and maximise your resistance.
