CAPE CORAL, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 -- Green Innovations Ltd. (OTCQB: GNIN) (OTCBB: GNIN) ("Green Innovations" or the "Company") and the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Green Hygienics, Inc. ("Green Hygienics"), is pleased to announce that Albertsons has placed their first order of Sensational® Bamboo Bath Tissue and Sensational® Bamboo Kitchen Towels for distribution in their 115 stores located throughout the Southwestern United States.
"Albertsons has answered the call to 'Go Greenest' with Green Hygienics' Sensational Bamboo line," said Jeff Thurgood, Vice President of Sales for Green Hygienics. "Consumers looking for truly environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly products that are even greener than recycled can now turn to Albertsons for their chance to join the 'Go Greenest' movement."
Unlike recycled paper products that require harsh chemicals to process, bamboo-based paper products are environmentally friendly and sustainable. Some benefits of bamboo include:
- Bamboo groves releases 35 percent more oxygen into the air than a similar-sized stand of trees
- Bamboo matures within seven years, compared to 30-50 years for a stand of trees
- Bamboo improves soil conditions and prevent erosion
- Bamboo is so fast-growing that it can yield 20 times more timber than trees
The smooth texture and strength of paper products made from all-natural bamboo makes it ideal for bath tissue, facial tissues, kitchen towels and more. The Company plans to continue to develop and launch other products made from sustainable 100% tree-free bamboo.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
