Uniform Advantage Partners with Action for Healthy Kids to Help Fight against Diabetes


Plantation, FL (PRWEB) November 04, 2014

According to Action for Healthy Kids, one in three kids is overweight or obese — putting them at risk for diabetes and other serious health issues. If this trend continues, this generation will be the first in American history to live shorter lives than their parents. This is a very scary statistic as it reflects our culture and society in the last 10 years. Parents are working longer hours or multiple jobs and less time is being spent with their kids. As a result, they do not play outside enough or are less involved in extracurricular activities and the pace that technology and electronics have advanced, they are now consumed with these instead.

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States according to the American Diabetes Association. Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age but children, teens or young adults are diagnosed more than adults by this condition. The body makes little or no insulin and daily injections of insulin are required.

This Fall 2014, Uniform Advantage donated $ 1 from the sale of each of its Diabetes Awareness White prints and will be contributing over $ 2,500.00 to help fight against Diabetes in kids. Giselle Butler, SEO Analyst/Project Manager said “Charities involving kids always need help with greater exposure and funding. Uniform Advantage is excited to be involved and do our part as this is the next generation after us!”

Urban Hydroponics, Inc.

(Urban Cultivator), BC Northern Lights Enterprises Ltd. (“BC Northern Lights), and W3 Metal Inc. (W3 Metal and together with Urban Cultivator and BC Northern Lights, the Target Companies). Pursuant to the LOI and an earlier non-binding term sheet, Urban Hydroponics, to date, has made working capital bridge loans to the Target Companies in an aggregate amount of $ 880,000 from funds it raised in a private placement to non-US persons.

Urban Cultivator is a British Columbia-based manufacturer of high quality, fully-automated indoor growing appliances that allow year-round growing of herbs, micro-greens, flowers and veggies. The Urban Cultivator appliance features an automated control center to ensure that greens get precisely the right amount of water and light, while onboard fans control humidity and air circulation. The Urban Cultivator comes in a residential model and a commercial size application for restaurants. The Urban Cultivator appliance plumbs into city water and electricity, and is easy to install. It serves the growing locavore movement that aims to consume locally grown, organic foods. Urban Cultivator employs 14 people and its estimated, unaudited revenue for 2014 is expected to be approximately $ 1.2 million. Urban Cultivators website address is http://www.urbancultivator.net .

The commercial scale Urban Cultivator is used by some of the top restaurants and hotels in the world including the Four Seasons and the Fairmont, both in Vancouver. High end chefs turn to the Urban Cultivator to help them provide the freshest and best tasting experience for their customers. The Urban Cultivator can save restaurants $ 500 to $ 1500 per month in the cost of greens. Moreover, restaurants can promise their customers that greens grown on their premises in the Urban Cultivator are cultivated without pesticides and harmful chemicals and are harvested at peak nutritional value then plated within minutes. Executive Chef of Four Seasons Vancouver, Ned Bell, has emphasized that The Urban Cultivator is a vital component to our culinary mission of incorporating fresh, local and sustainable ingredients into our menus.

Additionally, Martha Stewart, famous culinary enthusiast, is a fan of the Urban Cultivator and has described the appliance as the perfect indoor garden for your home and restaurant. Martha Stewart uses the Urban Cultivator in her test kitchen to incorporate fresh herbs and ingredients into her recipes, to promote a healthy-green diet.

BC Northern Lights is a British Columbia-based manufacturer of indoor hydroponic grow boxes serving the sector since 2001. BC Northern Lights offers seven different grow box combinations that help both the novice and professional grower through each stage of the production cycle.

W3 Metal is a British Columbia-based metals fabricator that specializes in the manufacture of hydroponic grow boxes for Urban Cultivator and BC Northern Lights. It is expected that he integration of W3 Metal into the post-merger company will help ensure the highest standards of quality control for the metal components and manufacture of the Urban Cultivator appliances and the BC Northern Lights growboxes.

Urban Hydroponics Principal Executive Officer Frank Terzo stated, This proposed merger transaction will bring public two of the leading name brands in hydroponics. Urban Cultivator and BC Northern Lights appliances have received accolades from trade publications and high-profile users alike. The increasing awareness around eating locally grown, higher nutrition foods that reduce our carbon footprint is a driving force behind the expanding growth of this market. We look forward to completing this merger transaction by the end of the calendar year.

Tarren Wolfe, founder and majority stockholder of Urban Cultivator, BC Northern Lights, and W3 Metal, added, We believe that upon completion of this merger, we will be financed and positioned for accelerated growth as we leverage our brand equity to supply top-quality appliances to residential and commercial customers. As a public company we can better pursue the tremendous growth opportunity in the hydroponics market.

For more information about the proposed merger and related transactions, including the bridge loans to the Target Companies and the Companys associated private placement, see the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 28, 2014. The proposed merger is subject to certain conditions and contingencies and there can be no assurance at this time that the merger will be completed as currently planned.

Urban Hydroponics, Inc. (formerly known as Placer Del Mar, Ltd.) was incorporated in Nevada on May 13, 2005 for the purpose of mining and mineral exploration.
