If you have a busy schedule like my family does, stopping to wash hands all the time just isn’t feasible. And in this day and age, keeping my family safe and healthy is definitely a priority! But short of staying home all day or wearing gloves out in public, what’s a busy Mom to do? Luckily, there’s an easy solution that fits our active lifestyle. Let me tell you how we keep clean hands on the go with the OLO Band.
About OLO Band
GOOD HEALTH FOR A HAPPIER WORLD
Our world is shaped by the choices we make every day. We all have the power to make a positive impact with our choices. Our mission is to make smart, thoughtful choices – like healthy hand hygiene – easy for everyone. The idea for our first innovation, the Olo Band sanitizer wristband, came from a frustrating realization made by founder – New York chef and restauranteur – Mogan Anthony.
Hand sanitizer is inconvenient and impractical for everyday use.
We sought to change that.
Our unique, patent pending solution is designed to fit into your active, healthy lifestyle. The Olo Band’s refillable pod also helps reduce plastic waste. When you wear an Olo Band, you are helping to promote good, healthy hygiene habits in the community. When you practice good hygiene, you show others that you care. Our team was brought together by our belief in the power of innovation to create positive change as well as our shared commitment to supporting our neighbors, particularly those most vulnerable.
A rubber/silicone wrist band with a built in bottle of hand sanitizer. Simply flip the cap, press the side of the bottle, and snap it shut. You’ve instantly got hand sanitizer right at your fingertips instead of searching through your backpack or purse. The refillable bottle can hold up to 0.75 oz / 22ml of sanitizer.
Just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean we’re going to start staying home all the time. If anything, because of the cooler weather and school starting back up, we’ll be just as busy! Whether we’re at a sports practice or running errands, there’s not always a convenient (or clean) bathroom to wash our hands in. For sticky messes or spills, using a baby wipe works just fine. But it doesn’t kill the germs that little hands come in contact with. So what’s the answer? Portable hand sanitizer that you carry right on your wrist to help keep clean hands on the go with the OLO Band.
How it works
Before you wear the OLO Band for the first time, you will want to fill it with your favorite hand sanitizer. Simply squirt or pour your preferred product into the included squeezy bottle and screw on the lid. It has a very fine pointed tip so that when you open the reusable bottle of the OLO Band, you can refill it in seconds without making a mess. Then snap the lid back on the plastic bottle insert, pop it into your OLO Band, and press and snap the band closed on your wrist!
When you need your hand sanitizer, pop the cap on the bottle, squeeze out the perfect amount, and pop the cap closed again! Then rub your hands together and keep going on about your way.
The band itself is made out of medical grade rubber and silicone material so it’s waterproof, it won’t absorb odors, and is light and comfortable to wear on either wrist. It’s worn just like a smart watch in fact. The band itself is black, but the plastic bottle inserts that hold your hand sanitizer come in four colors: black, red, orange, and blue. This is great if you have a family like I do, so we can keep them all straight.
Who it’s great for
In my case, it’s great for my family. Both the adults and the kids can wear their OLO Band anywhere we go. And I know that within seconds, we can all sanitize our hands and help keep ourselves healthy and safe from those pesky germs that are everywhere. I feel better knowing that whether we’re at the park, soccer practice, or even grabbing a bite to eat, we can have clean hands before and after.
Plus I can refill the OLO Band’s reusable bottle with the larger bottle I keep at home. I don’t have to lug it around in our bags or buy each one of us a smaller, more expensive personal bottle to tote around either. So it saves our budget money which is a win for this Mom!
It’s also a great idea for others with busy lifestyles, like teachers, nurses, servers and more! Basically anyone who is out in the world could use an OLO Band.
As if having instant hand sanitizer at your fingertips wasn’t great enough, you can also use the OLO Band for other products too. Consider filling it with your favorite sunscreen for example. When the older kids are at the theme park but don’t want to haul a bag around, they can still have sunscreen right at their wrist. If your hands get dry in the winter, consider filling it with your preferred lotion. Do you use essential oils? This is another great way to keep them with you even on the go. You can even purchase extra sets of the OLO Bands and their reusable squeeze bottle to swap out what you’re carrying with you for the day!
The OLO Band is a convenient and stylish way to keep your hands sanitized at all times. It’s waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about being caught in the rain or washing dishes with it on! Plus, it won’t absorb odors like other wrist bands will after a while. Whether you want one for each member of your family or just one for yourself, the OLO Band comes in four colors to choose from- black, blue, orange, or red – so everyone can get their favorite color! Where do you think you’ll wear yours for clean hands on the go with the OLO Band?
