A company in the Middle East called Geometry has come up with a device that slides across shopping cart handles, dispensing a thin layer of disinfectant for between-use cleaning.
The company first conceived the product in 2015 but is retooling the concept for mass production.
The agency claims that the invention has seen implementation in more than 500 supermarkets worldwide over the course of two years. And now, with companies scrambling to implement quick-clean practices that lessen the workload of essential workers, they are hoping to expand the market even more.
“There’s going to be a new kind of responsibility on companies and organizations providing a different level of sanitation and security to be able to go back into a commerce shopping, commercial environment,” CEO Beth Ann Kaminkow said.
