SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — Guardsy® offers a novel solution for creating safe work environments with its premium line of desktop sneeze guards. As sneeze guards and protective barriers have made their way into office workspaces, companies find that traditional acrylic sneeze guards offer only a temporary solution as they crack, shatter, and begin to haze. These issues with conventional acrylic sneeze guards detract from the look of workspaces. They also lead to unsafe sharp edges that can become a liability. Glass alternatives are prone to shattering, not cost-effective, and present the same safety challenges as acrylic.

Only Guardsy® offers a line of high-grade sneeze guards made from proprietary Guardsy® sheet that features scratch-resistance, fingerprint resistance, and anti-glare properties. Unlike thin acrylic plastic that bows under its own weight, Guardsy® sneeze guards are extremely durable, shatterproof, and will not break if hit or dropped.

Where traditional guards and barriers craze and discolor with regular cleaning, Guardsy® desktop sneeze guards are easy to clean and sanitize using an approved mild solution without damaging the guard's integrity.

Guardsy® desktop sneeze guards are easy to transport flat and assemble in seconds without hardware using the included slide-on bases. Desktop sneeze guards come with an 18-inch wide pass-through slot at the bottom to allow for documents or wires. Custom sizes and discounts are available for bulk purchases.

• Assembles and disassembles in seconds
• Scratch and abrasion-resistant
• Fingerprint resistant
• Glare resistant
• Easy to clean and sanitize with approved cleaners
• High optical clarity and light transmission
• Portable & versatile for use in any environment

Guardsy® manufactures barriers from their exclusive line of high-impact and shatter-resistant materials that offer a premium look and feel, withstanding the toughest punishment while providing maximum protection. Customers use Guardsy® sneeze guards for office workspaces, reception areas, retail areas, cafeterias, and educational institutions. Guardsy® personal protection experts are here to consult you; call (888) 768-5759 to talk to an expert about your specific needs and applications.

MEEZBO, the automated microgreens grower has just launched on Kickstarter

Indoor Microgreens grower

Meezbo is the ultimate smart indoor microgreens grower

Meezbo is an innovative, smart indoor garden with self-watering and lighting systems that will grow fresh microgreens all year round only at a touch of a button

LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM, March 31, 2021 / — -Innovative, smart indoor garden with self-watering and lighting systems
-Fresh, tasty and healthy microgreens for your daily meals, year-round
-Designed to fit anywhere in your home or office, comes in 2 sizes
-Made from sustainable, eco-friendly components

MEEZBO Ltd announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to promote an innovative microgreens grower that meets the global megatrends of health and urbanization. The Meezbo microgreens grower is aimed specifically at people with a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, as well as businesses (culinary industries, retail centers, hospitality facilities…).

Innovation, sustainability and aesthetics
Meezbo is a smart, app-controlled micro-garden which uses 100% non-toxic fibre mats as a growing medium instead of the classic soil growing. The founders of Meezbo recognize their responsibility to protect the environment and this is what drove the use of only sustainable materials for building the product, having aluminium tubes, wooden trays and BPA free plastic plates as the main components. The product uses automated and software controlled LED lights and watering systems that allow consumers to enjoy a large variety of fresh microgreens all year-round, with zero-effort.

“When we started designing Meezbo, this is the experience we had in mind:
Providing our users with an elegant piece of decor that they’ll be proud to install in their homes and which will effortlessly provide them with fresh nutritious microgreens to enjoy in their favourite recipes.” Stefan Besnea, engineer, CEO and co-founder of Meezbo Ltd.

Meeting the consumers’ needs: the advent of microgreens and “grow your own” movement
Since the coronavirus outbreak in early 2020, consumers who were confined to their private sphere started looking more into DIY and indoor gardening products. As a result, the need for locally grown superfoods without harmful substances and a smart indoor garden that is easy-to-use and delivers fresh greens all year-round becomes ever more essential.

That’s why the Meezbo team imagined an innovative stylish grower for fresh microgreens. With aromatic flavour and high concentration of nutrients (they can contain up to 40 times more essential nutrients compared to their mature counterparts), microgreens are loaded in vitamins and make a great addition to any healthy diet and lifestyle. Originally reserved to chefs, microgreens are becoming ever more popular amongst the urban population in search of adding color and flavor to their meals.

“Imagine coming home to this stylish grower stashed with fresh microgreens. Now imagine opening the Meezbo mobile app and picking a delicious recipe from the list we carefully set up for you. Once you’ve finished preparing your meal, you’ll only need to harvest and sprinkle your microgreens on top. What an easy way to kick up your meals with fresh nutritious greens!” Mihail Vieru, engineer,CTO and co-founder of Meezbo Ltd.

Kickstarter campaign launching on March 31st
Meezbo Ltd aims for growth in selected markets in Europe, North America, Asia and Middle East. To facilitate this, a crowdfunding campaign for £30.000 has launched today. Future clients will be able to choose from a range of rewards, the lowest stake (£10) offering a unique opportunity to plant a tree in a location of their choice. Super Early Bird packages will be offered with up to 32% discount compared to predicted retail price and will be limited to 25 pieces for each selected size. Early Bird growers are offered with over 25% discount and limited to 75 pieces per size. Each level of reward will include the selected grower and a full growing kit.

• Mineral-based
U.S. Natural Dyes Market by End-user
• Food & Beverages
• Textile & Leather
• Pharmaceutical
• Cosmetics
• Paper
• Cleaning Products

U.S. Natural Dyes Market – Dynamics

Considering economic dimensions, synthetic dyes are at first more interesting than natural dyes as synthetic dyes are cheaper to produce, brighter, color-fast, and provide easy application to fabrics. Synthetic dyes can easily be manufactured in large quantities in response to industrial and commercial demands. In the case of natural dyes, plants containing colorants will not be freshly available throughout the year, which implies the storage challenge for producers or end-users, thereby becoming a costly affair. In addition, natural dyes are not originally made for dyeing synthetic fibers, which account for the majority of fibers in the market and their potential use for textiles is linked closely to the type of fiber being dyed. One of the profitable possibilities for vendors is to target niche markets such as bio-fibers combined with natural colorants that respond to a specific category of customers, but these products are difficult to find. Nevertheless, synthetic dyes are becoming increasingly expensive because of the rising cost of eco-toxicological tests and the fact that they are petroleum products, which will increase oil prices due to scarcity.

Key Drivers and Trends fueling Market Growth:
• Increasing Online Presence of Vendors
• Increasing Demand from End-user Industries
• Growing Environment-conscious Consumers
• Evolving Urban Lifestyle

U.S. Natural Dyes Market – Geography

The Southern region in the US natural dye market includes states such as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, US Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia. Central and South Carolina have been flourishing with the food production facilities moving from the fields to complex and integrated manufacturing facilities. The certified land and affordable resources have attracted some of the largest food companies in the area. Thus, the food & beverages segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 14% with incremental revenue growth of approximately USD 189 million during 2020−2026. The five industrial parks of Gadsden Country, Florida, offer sites for all facilities from one acre onwards, which are ideal for craft breweries and artisan food producers, to over a hundred acres for large-scale facilities. Similarly, the Kentucky region is home to more than 360 food & beverage-related facilities, which can fuel the demand for natural food colorants or dyes.

Vancouver Custom Cabinetry and Flooring Retailer Wins Consumer Choice Award for Business Excellence

Canadian Home Style Recognized for Best Flooring in North Vancouver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, March 30, 2021 / — Canadian Home Style, the renowned family-owned and operated hands-on flooring and custom cabinetry company, today announced that it has received the 2021 Consumer Choice Award as North Vancouver’s best flooring company. For more than 30 years, Consumer Choice Award has been recognizing and promoting business excellence in Canada.

Canadian Home Style is a Vancouver flooring mainstay. The company offers hardwood flooring, carpet, laminate, luxury vinyl, and tiles. In addition to its award-winning flooring work, Canadian Home Style is the go-to resource for Vancouver custom cabinetry and Vancouver kitchen renovations. As the official dealer of Cabico custom cabinetry (, Canadian Home Style’s experienced teams handle the complete process of custom kitchen and bathroom renovations from start to finish. They design the kitchens in-house, famous for working with clients every step of the way, from inspiration to decision-making.

The company’s success is about more than just quality and craftsmanship, however. The organization works according to a strict ethos of never selling or displaying products that its owners would not put in their own homes. As they see it, this issue is more relevant than ever. Indeed, there is a lot of junk in the market.

As the spokesperson for Canadian Home Style explained, “Anything that we would have to rip out and put in the junkyard, we would never sell to a customer. We deliver lifelong solutions. When we do a job or sell a product, we want it to be good enough to last a lifetime. With this approach, the homeowner actually saves more money. Flooring has a huge impact on a home renovation project. It is the one area of a home that families come in contact with visually and physically every single day. We have high standards and take pride in our approach and philosophy towards every project and the way we operate our business.”

Canadian Home Style applies their standards for quality and doing the right thing to the environmental dimensions of the home renovation business. They endeavor to be environmentally and sustainably mindful throughout their procurement and installation processes. They do not carry products that are known to be environmentally harmful. In addition, a low-quality product will end up in the landfill. That is not the way the company wants to work with its customers. “Do it once, do it right—that’s our approach,” the spokesperson added. “It’s good for the customer and the environment. It’s really not about making a living or having the most profitable business. It's about doing the right thing.”

The Consumer Choice Award was established in 1987 with the sole purpose of recognizing business excellence in small and medium sized businesses. Winners are spread across 16 major metropolitan areas in Canada, from coast to coast.

Canadian Home Style’s showroom is located in North Vancouver, BC.

Paragon Concepts Adds REHAU to Cabinet Door Lineup

Best Shaker Door Manufacturer Paragon Concepts

Paragon Concepts Makes Cabinet Doors on Rehau

Rehau RAUVISIO NOIR on Paragon Concepts Cabinet Doors

DENVER, CO, USA, March 30, 2021 / — High-end cabinet door manufacturer, Paragon Concepts, added its thirteenth line in Rehau’s RAUVISIO Terra and RAUVISO NOIR materials.

“Terra is well-known as one of the finest textured materials out there. It is very soft to the touch and is surprising for folks to learn that it is an HPL,” quotes Isaiah Rozek, founder of Paragon. “My very own kitchen sports Terra.”

Since Terra is an HPL material, it reduces chipping and warping more so than TFL material does. The fact that it has clay as part of the material recipe leaves it soft with a very unique feel.

Additionally, Paragon is adding RAUVISIO Noir, Rehau’s super matte material in twelve colors. Noir replaces FENIX in Rehau’s own lineup and comes in a two-sided look that is fingerprint proof. Paragon currently produces on FENIX and now expands its material and color options by adding Noir.

“We have sufficient requests to warrant bringing in these two lines,” Continues Rozek. “REHAU has some very nice products, and these two fortify our upper end.”

Both materials are currently available in Paragon’s door program.

Paragon Concepts manufactures its doors in Colorado and sells them through distributors and reps across the country. You can read about them at

Designer Board 3D

The DB3D platform achieves a landmark threshold months earlier than anticipated.

DB3D is a designer's key to unlocking the door of efficiency”

— Victoria Burkholder

GREENSBORO, NC, UNITED STATES, March 26, 2021 / — DesignerBoard3D, the first 3D custom visualization tool offered to the design trade at no cost, announced that 500 designers had created accounts as of March 20, 2021. The number doubled since February and continues to grow exponentially since the launch of the platform in late 2020.

“We are delighted with the response of the design community to the functionality offered by DB3D. It has been extremely gratifying, especially given the amount of preparation and thought that went into creating a platform that is easy-to-use and solves a real pain point for designers today,” said Michal Stachowski, a founder and Chief Visual Officer of DB3D parent company Intiaro. “Interior designers are pressured now more than ever to provide a robust, digital experience to their clients and prospective clients,” Stachowski says, “one that highlights their own creativity and ability to provide a custom solution. We built DB3D with these needs in mind, allowing designers to customize any upholstery model in our library with any digital image of fabric or other patterns, opening a world of COM possibilities. It is truly revolutionary in that there are no restrictions on the designer’s ability to create a custom upholstered product offering”, he concluded. Designers who are actively engaged with DB3D agree.

Victoria Burkholder, based in New York City, is very familiar with the digital tools needed to work with clients in her industry. She says "DB3D is a designer's key to unlocking the door to efficiency. Bringing the ability to customize furniture designs and download them into 3D files has made creating 3D interior renderings easier.”

DesignerBoard3D includes high-end upholstery resources such as Norwalk Furniture, Lexington Home Brands, Century and, coming soon, Kravet and Rowe Furniture. The platform continues to find strong interest from brands and manufacturers who want their product in front of this growing user group of tech-friendly designers.

Carol Cisco, Principal at Signature Design + Studio in Lawrence, Kansas, also raves about the time saved by using the platform. "The discovery of DB3D has improved not only my workflow and efficiency, but continues to blow away my clients with exceptionally realistic 3D images”, Cisco stated in an email. “It's a smooth process to customize a 3D design, import them into my 3D rendering file and create terrific looking interiors—an added bonus I never expected!”

Enertia® Announces Mass Timber 'Energy' Research Campus in NC Research Triangle

Timber phase-change can heat your house

Timber phase-change can heat your house

The real future of Mass Timber is solar and thermal energy storage, the first new application for wood in recent history- carbon sequestered and carbon utilized

Energy storage is clearly the future of mass timber.”

— Michael Sykes

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, March 26, 2021 / — Mass timber is the most exciting building method in recent history, but has been focused on offices, tall buildings, and speed of construction. The real potential is its ability to store thermal energy- leading to buildings, for the first time in human history, that heat and cool without fuel or pollution. Very little R&D has been done in this area which will be the future for all mass timber designers and manufacturers. Enertia Building Systems, Inc. now the world leader in this technology, announces a Mass Timber Research Campus to explore new MT/Species layups, timber enhancement, and carbon storage in Mass Timber and CLT (Cross Laminated Timber).

The campus at the Franklin Eco-Industrial Park in Youngsville NC, just North of Raleigh, fronts on US Highway 1, and has a back entrance on US Highway 1A. It will have a double sided Guarded Hotbox, a high pressure roller seed-crystal press, and solar-heated pressure injection chambers. A CLT manufacturer is sought that will offer press time for experimental lay ups, and additive CLT panels. The location is adjacent to a Duke Energy substation with high voltage for a radio-frequency press. The site lease will be up to 10 years without charge, and both NC employment and solar-storage tax credits may be available. Duke Energy will buy back electricity from rooftop PV panels. There is space available for industry, university, and governmental research efforts as well.

Mass timber, once only built in Europe, has finally become accepted in America and Canada – even incorporated into the new building codes. Mass Timber buildings up to 18 stories have already been approved and constructed – based on their superior, yet unintuitive, fire resistance. MT is stronger than steel, weighs less than concrete, and is 100% renewable. It is Carbon Negative, meaning it sequesters tons of absorbed carbon for at least a millennium. The patented Enertia® process (US No. 6,933,016) injects even more carbon, and seed crystals, into the wood to enhance thermal capacity. The technology was honored in 2007 as one of America's first CCU (Carbon Capture & Utilization) patents and the resulting buildings named a Modern Marvel. Mass Timber also eliminates the debris-pollution problem of stick-framed homes destroyed by hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods.

Enertia® Building Systems Inc. is the ultimate green-tech, carbon-negative company- each house package out-the-door sequesters 25-50 tons of carbon, and prevents the release of 4 million tons of CO2 in its lifetime. Built from a pre-cut numbered kit, in a time of skilled labor shortage, the Enertia® home is capable of decarbonizing America in it's largest dollar market: rebuilding the single family infrastructure, most of which will need to be replaced in the next fifty years, sooner on the coast. Enertia® is the only proven, in-production solution that meets the requirements of 100% renewable, fuel and pollution free, traditional-looking, wind, fire, and earthquake resistant, and economical to build. The company plans to license its technology in North America, and Europe. Building an Enertia® home is the most a single family can do to impact, and protect themselves from, climate change, and extend that massive environmental and financial benefit to their next 40+ generations.

How Richard VanDeWalle Jr Is Making the Lumber Industry More Structured and Harder Than Ever

How Richard VanDeWalle Jr Is Making the Lumber Industry More Structured and Harder Than Ever

How Richard VanDeWalle Jr Is Making the Lumber Industry More Structured and Harder Than Ever

How Richard VanDeWalle Jr Is Making the Lumber Industry More Structured and Harder Than Ever

Lumberyards across the nation should take note of the success, mission, and values held by Richard VanDeWalle Jr.

BLUE GRASS, IOWA, UNITED STATES, March 25, 2021 / — As lumber demand across the country continues to soar, certain hindrances on production levels continue to rise as well. As lumberyards run short on necessary materials and supplies to produce lumber, the industry is also enduring a shortage of home renovation specialists.

In Blue Grass, the demand for lumber started to climb in 2020. In fact, Richard Vandewalle Jr one of Dick-N-Sons Lumber's Inventory Specialists and Operation Manager., says the price for lumber has been steadily increasing all throughout the pandemic. It's not at all uncommon for it to be “Nonstop. Every day. We got people building decks every day, redoing their basements, kitchens, remodeling,” Vanderwalle claims. This means for those in need of remodeling and repair contractors, the surge in demand for lumber specialists has resulted in higher service fees as well as longer completion times in projects involving lumber.

Fortunately, a lumberyard based out of Iowa, Dick-n-Sons Lumber, pressed on through the pandemic to provide ongoing lumber services to locals and non-local customers. Most importantly, this lumberyard which is one of the oldest in the state has always had a rich history in proving itself as a valuable asset to the community. The value to the community is particularly noticed among disadvantaged and homeless veterans at the Quad Cities Veterans Outreach Center. The facility provides everything from health care checkups to a food pantry, veterinary services, haircuts, and various other programs to local veterans. One of the owners of Dick-n-Sons started the center in memory of her own father, a WWII veteran at the age of only 17. Injured in Combat her father was awarded the purple heart. Richard VanDeWalle Jr says they work together to make the center a success in his Grandfather’s memory.

As one can imagine, the services rendered at the veteran's outreach center have helped the community in various ways, especially among those in need of repair and remodeling jobs involving lumber. As more people throughout the community come into contact with the outreach center, more locals and non-locals alike learn about the multi-faceted services available through Dick-N-Sons. This has caused the lumberyard to earn extreme exposure throughout the past few years, and more importantly, it has allowed Richard VanDeWalle Jr to make the lumber industry more structured and competitive in the community.
Lumberyards across the nation should take note of the success, mission, and values held by Richard VanDeWalle Jr. As lumberyards search for ways to keep up with lumber demands, it can greatly help to learn from those businesses that are already finding success and growth like Dick-N-Sons.
