Date:8/3/2009

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Are microbes going back to school with your kids this fall? Not if you fill their book bags with school supplies that feature built-in Microban((R)) antimicrobial product protection to help prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration.

On unprotected school supplies, bacteria can quickly multiply and grow. Microban antimicrobial technology is now infused into a growing number of school products during the manufacturing process to provide continuous antimicrobial protection that lasts the lifetime of the product.

"The best defense against bacteria in the classroom is proper hand washing techniques," says David Meyers, President and CEO of Microban International. "Microban antimicrobial technology provides an added level of cleanliness protection that works 24/7 to keep products in the classroom cleaner." At a time when consumer concerns about the presence of microbes in schools is growing, school supplies with Microban protection provide greater peace of mind to students, parents and teachers.

Microban antimicrobial technology is available in a full range of school supplies including:

  • Westcott((R)) scissors, rulers, sharpeners, protractors and erasers
  • California Innovations((R)) lunch boxes
  • Avery((R)) binders
