Mother of Three Invents Cup-Holder Tissue Tube

(HealthNewsDigest.com) - According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, over 5,400 deaths and nearly ½ million injuries occurred in 2009 due to distracted driving – a hazard that is completely avoidable. The Kiss-u Tissue Tube, which is intended to stem this trend by placing the tissues in the car cup-holder, is now available in Walgreen stores nationwide. Culled from her own experiences, Ms. Davis designed the Kiss-u Tissue Tube to fit the car cupholder where it is within easy reach of drivers so drivers don’t have to search the car for tissues and can keep their eyes and attention on the road.
Searching for a tissue while driving is one of the worst kinds of distracted driving behaviors according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration because, like texting, this activity requires drivers take their eyes, hands, and attention off the task of driving. Additionally, reaching for a tissue usually requires the driver to lean to the right either to grab a box of tissues on the floor or to reach into a pocketbook or briefcase on the passenger side of the car. Reaching right causes the car to veer to the right endangering anyone walking or riding alongside the road. Thus, searching for a tissue endangers not only people in vehicles but pedestrians as well.
Kiss-u-Tissue Tubes are also eco-friendly, in line with Kiss-u Corps LLC's mission to be stewards of the natural environment. The Tubes are made from 70% recycled cardboard and contain elemental chlorine-free tissues. The tissue dispenser is also designed to be refillable. Consumers buy just one dispenser and can use it over and over again.
This well-designed, environmentally responsible new product arrived at Walgreen stores nationwide starting February 1, 2011. Refills packets can be ordered by going to the Kiss-u Corps LLC website: http://www.kissutissue.com
