We need Laguna Blue now more than ever! A recent study found that dirty linens were responsible for numerous deaths at a Pittsburgh hospital.  The full article is linked below:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/29/health/pittsburgh-hospital-mold-outbreak-emails/

The likely source of a deadly mold outbreak that started in 2014 at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center hospitals was the hospitals’ linen provider, according to findings shared in emails exclusively obtained by CNN.

UPMC informed the Allegheny County Health Department, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that its independent testing led UPMC officials to believe the linens were the likely source of the outbreak, according to the emails.
Six deaths since October 2014 have been linked to heavy mold growth on linens at three UPMC hospitals — Presbyterian, Montefiore and Shadyside.

Summer Sanders

We are ecstatic to announce that Olympic gold-medal winner Summer Sanders will be our official Laguna Blue ambassador and spokesperson!

At the 1992 Olympic Games, a 19-year-old Summer Sanders won four Olympic medals, bringing home 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze. The moment she hung up her Speedo, she embarked on a television career, hosting shows for MTV (Sandblast), the NBA (Inside Stuff), Nickelodeon (Figure It Out), and Fox (The Sports List, Skating with Celebrities), and acting as a correspondent for shows such as Good Morning America, Rachael Ray, and The Today Show. She has been a contestant on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and the Food Network’s “Guy vs. Rachael Celebrity Cook-Off”. Through her production company Sanders co-created and hosted “Find Your Fitness” on MSN, and The Summer of W on ESPNW. She is most recently the co-host of CBS Sports Net’s award winning sports talk show, “We Need To Talk” and was the host of HLN’s game show “Keywords”. A health and fitness realist, Sanders is a working mom who prides herself on living a hands-on active lifestyle and being a “life is perfectly imperfect” motivator. In October of 2014, her life changed forever when she learned she had a malignant melanoma. She would discover 2 more during the next year. She is cancer free after catching them very early. Her voice and passion for skin cancer are stronger than ever as the volunteer spokesperson for John Wayne Cancer Foundation’s “Block the Blaze” education and awareness program. She also serves on the board of Right To Play (her humanitarian love for 2 decades and counting) and The USA Swimming foundation. She has two children, Skye (10) and Spider (8), with her husband Olympic skier Erik Schlopy.

Summer’s enthusiasm for health, fitness, and family perfectly embodies our mission to provide families and individuals with healthier and greener products to create a healthier environment both in and outside the home.  Please celebrate with us as we welcome Summer to the Laguna Blue family!

Laguna Blue is proud to support the arts through our sponsorship of Beyond Cinema Magazine and the AFCI at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.  Thank you to all the festival participants, celebrities, directors, and casts and crews for stopping by our studio! We hope you enjoy our new Active Set!

I use paper towels most of the time to dry my hands because I do not want to keep using the same cloth towel over and over again.  Let’s face it, the towel is full of germs.  If I dried my dishes with paper towels, however, I would be going through a roll a day and I am not rich and when I take a shower, I cannot dry myself using paper towels so I have to use cloth towels.  Do I wash them every single time I take a shower?…read more

Being on this ‘greener’ path for quite a few years now, I’m always searching for ways to simplify and make my life more natural. Laguna Blue helped me simplify another area of my life, TOWELS!!
Who here hates doing laundry and hates how long it takes to dry? ME!!!!
Laguna Blue towels are more absorbent than cotton towels, BUT they also dry much faster! We reuse towels in this house, so I like that I can hang up a towel after my shower and my husband can use it again in just a few hours and have it be totally dry. I dislike drying with a wet towel, but no longer with Laguna Blue!…read more

As a mom who’s serious about keeping my family healthy despite the hazards of daily life, I know that toxic chemicals and menacing germs are big pieces of the puzzle that have to be addressed. I’m no germaphobe, but I certainly want to take the precautions I can to maintain a salubrious home environment. This also means I never use cleaning products that contain toxic chemicals. After all, that would mean exposing my family to the very things I’m trying to avoid, and subjecting their systems to unnecessary stress…read more.

With my family of seven we go through a lot of towels. We have hand towels in all three bathrooms, dozens of kitchen towels and large towels for the bath and shower. I wash a load of towels nearly every single day. Did you know that the average washing machine uses 40 gallons of water per load? That is a lot of water. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could save water, time and energy by washing our towels less often? The new Laguna Blue™ towels make this possible. I love these beautiful towels…read more.
