One of the most important things to me, is to make sure that my children are safe. I’ve always made sure that I make my home safe enough for my children. I put things out of reach that I know they should not be getting into. I would never want my kids to ever get a hold of something that is dangerous or even poisonous to them or to anyone. I think it’s an important topic for many.
I’m sure that you have all heard about the situations where kids have been getting a hold of the laundry pods. My laundry items were always put away safely where my kids couldn’t get to them. I never thought about kids trying to eat laundry Pods until I heard about it all over the internet and I believe I may have seen it on the news as well. It’s very important that you put these items out of reach of children so that they’re not going to think they can play with or eat them. This is extremely dangerous to them.
Tide PODS recently debuted a new ad campaign featuring the Child-Guard on their package. Child-Guard is the first ever child-resistant closure system designed specifically for products that use flexible packaging. I think this was a brilliant idea, because of all the hype about kids getting into these pods. This zipper is a lot more difficult to open than your average ones that you’ve normally used. This makes it harder for children to get them open, which is a great thing. This way if a kid accidentally gets into them, they will have a harder time getting them open, and it gives parents more of a chance to catch them with it.
Presto Products Company is the creator of Child-Guard. They’re a market leader in the private label and flexible packaging industries. You’ll see the red zipper that moves around on the bag. You can’t just move it back and forth to get this to open up the bag. That would make things too easy for children to get the package open.
Instead, you have to make sure to align the notch, then you push down and pull it. This is the way you’re going to get this open. Most kids are going to think it’s like a normal zipper where you just hold on to the zipper part and pull it. That’s not the case here, which is a such a great thing. I would hate to see any more kids get harmed from these products.
I think that Child-Guard is important to everyone, especially parents. Just last year the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention received more than 1.3 million calls involving poison exposure for children. This Child-Guard zipper is something I feel needs to be brought up all over the world. It would be nice to have more safe products like this on poisonous products so that kids are not getting into them.

I hope that you will all take a look at this and think more about the products you buy. I highly recommend it if you buy the ones with these Child-Guard zippers. Nobody wants their children to accidentally get into something they shouldn’t, so these zippers are designed in a way that makes it harder for children to open.
