It's National Poison Prevention Week!

59 years ago, in an effort to raise awareness, promote poison prevention, and reduce unintentional poisonings, Congress established National Poison Prevention Week. During the third week in March annually, communities across America have come together to work with the National Poison Prevention Week Council to highlight the dangers of various types of poisonings for people of all ages.

Each year, the council holds children's artwork contest and helps organize various other activities.

Contact your local poison center by calling 1-800-222-1222 to find out what activities they may already be planning in your area and how you can help. - HRSA.Gov

At Outdoor Joe's® we understand the pain and danger that can result from exposure to various poisons (especially plants). This is why we've created many resources to aide in common issues related to poison ivy, such as:

"If someone touches one of these plants, rinse right away with running water for at least five minutes. Poison center experts may not be able to identify other plants on the phone, so it is important before a poisoning occurs to learn the names of plants around your home. Call Poison Help (1-800-222-1222), which connects you to your local poison center, to find out more information." - HRSA.Gov

Of course, we recommend Outdoor Joe's® Poison Ivy Pro for poison ivy prevention in nature lovers of all ages

Curious if Outdoor Joe's® is the treatment for you, a loved one, or considering retailing Outdoor Joe's Poison Ivy Pro®? We would love to hear from you!
