Your Ideas:  "You need to sell your desiccant to one of the companies who make big absorbent bags they hang inside ocean containers to prevent 'container rain'.  Yes, the humidity inside these ocean containers condenses on the metal roofs and then eventually drips on the inventory.  It is a huge, costly problem in the international shipping business." Jack Lester in Seattle

RE:  "Amy, I see you're with the Univ of Miami-Ohio.  If you believe in our mission/concept, one great thing you can do is forward our newsletter &/or contact info to the purchasing and the facilities / engineering departments.  An organization of your size would have all kinds of obsolete materials that would be candidates for "repurposing"! - Damon

RE:  "Thanks a great idea, Damon! I'll find the right people, and forward this on!" - Amy
