Remember the beloved movie Groundhog Day, in which Bill Murray kept reliving the same day over and over again until he’d learned from all of his mistakes?
We’ll all become time travelers after a fashion on Sunday, November 7, when we set our clocks back to standard time at 2 a.m. and get to relive an hour. Of course, smart people will be asleep at that time, having re-set their clocks on Saturday night before bed. If you choose to stay out and revel for the extra hour, it might be a Bill Murray moment. Your body clock will let you know the next day.
But regardless of when you time travel, it’s nice to have an extra hour in our rush-rush world. And if you use it to contemplate slowing down a bit, that’s good. Especially now, with winter approaching.
As daylight dims earlier each evening, it translates to more travel to and from work and other activities in the dark and increasingly wet days. While California, among other states, certainly needs the rain, wet conditions also mean a higher risk of potential accidents: on foot, bicycle, skateboard, and in the car.
Spill Solutions for Dark, Wet Days
If you’re driving in dark, wet weather, one smart product to stow behind your truck seat or cab is a portable spill containment berm to catch those unexpected leaks and spills. Designed for compact, rugged spill containment, our spill berms are made of durable polymer enhanced with a special coating compound that withstands and remains useable at temperatures as low as -65°F and as high as 130°F. The spill berm will also stand up to hot automotive fluids, and can be pre-fitted with a disposable absorbent pad for fast and easy clean up.
To keep walkways and entranceways to your retail or municipal establishment clean, dry, and safe, be sure to stock up on XSORB Outdoor All-Purpose. As its name suggests, this product is just what a business needs to simply sweep away spills and wet, tracked in water and dirt. XSORB Outdoor is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and easily handles even tough spills such as oil, grease and paint.
It’s also one of many Impact Absorbents products that have received Ecologo certification from UL. Ecologo criteria have been devised with the goal to 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.
However you choose to embrace standard time this month, it pays to embrace smart spill clean up solutions. After all, one extra hour is a bonus. Having to relive it over and over while cleaning up a spill with a mop and bucket or paper towels? Not so much.
