Black Couple Launches Commercial Cleaning Service
Nationwide -- To help companies and their employees work in safe environments during the COVID-19 pandemic, an African American couple from north central Florida has launched Nelson's Professional Cleaning Services, which uses eco-friendly products to help local businesses to remove 99% of all bacteria from their offices and/or storefronts.
Their company is a Jan-Pro franchise owned and operated by Mister and Virginia Nelson that offers their clients the unique EnviroShield® program, which helps to minimize the spread of viruses and bacteria, especially on commonly touched surfaces. Their franchise employs a dozen people and conducts extensive background checks for all of its employees.
"While many companies like ours are now jumping into the marketplace with various solutions of disinfection, my husband and I know that there's a need for this now - and long after COVID-19," said Virginia, a former juvenile detention officer and now a program manager at an all-girls group home.

The Black-Owned Feminine Care Brand You Need to Know About
Nationwide -- Arion Long founded Femly after being diagnosed with a reproductive illness that was linked directly to chemicals in popular feminine care products. Prior to starting the company, she had no idea that added ingredients like nylon, rubber, and bleach were lurking inside the sanitary pads and tampons she was using! As a result, she decided to be the change she wanted to see and create a company that gives back!
Here's how Femly is different!
Other feminine care products take 120 years to break down once thrown away but Femly's pads and panty liners are eco-friendly and biodegradable, plus they offer a reusable menstrual cup.
Femly's award-winning brand not only provides healthier alternatives to toxic products, but they also highlight health education, donate to people in need, and believe in offering disposable options that are non-bulky, absorbent, and secure! With a clean cotton feel, winged protection, and 3X absorbency, Femly's products are great for both people in need of a better experience and those who may want to make a switch that may help with endometriosis, heavy cramping, and/or fibroids.
