Don’t Be “Phone-y”

Did you know July is cell phone courtesy month? We like this concept.

It used to be weird enough to think someone was talking to themselves when you couldn’t see that little earpiece. But now people are more brazen. You don’t want to listen to their half of the conversation, at peak volume, while waiting in line for your order, or even in a public restroom? Too bad. People are committed to their phones, and the rest of the world is just background to their noise.

We find it especially frustrating in the park. You go there to enjoy nature and perhaps get in a little aerobic exercise, and every other park visitor is on their phone or — perhaps even sadder, though quieter — has their earbuds in and tunes turned up. 

We get it, sort of. Life is challenging in 2021, after 18 months of sheltering in place and a topsy-turvy, uncertain future in which the world we once knew is unrecognizable. So if everyone wants or needs to engage in some spill the tea to soften the new reality, who are we to say they ought to be more courteous? 

When You Spill the Tea IRL 

We do have some advice, though: if you’re going to spill tea IRL rather than just on social media or over the phone, make sure you have smart spill clean up solutions on hand.

Impact Absorbents provides more than 500 premier spill clean up and spill containment products to meet every possible spill mishap. Our flagship product, XSORB Universal, has been around for nearly 30 years, ever since the Tharps created it in their garage. Non-toxic and environmentally friendly, our dry formula absorbs all types of liquids and semi-liquids on contact, making it easy to simply sweep away spills. 

Plus, XSORB Universal is one of many products that have received Ecologo certification from UL. Ecologo criteria identify the top overall environmental performers on the market. These best performers have demonstrated that, compared to others on the market, they have an overall reduced potential burden on the environment per unit of production.

So stock up on ecological, economical, easy to use XSORB Universal and other spill clean up solutions before summer delivers a spill clean up emergency. Now that we’re back in face-to-face contact again, you might not need the phone quite as much, even if you plan to Spill the Tea.
