Innovation of the week: free sun protection for children
Rachel Payne and Liz Gearing are two clients of Simply Travel (020-8541 2222, www.simplytravel.com) who have seen a business opportunity in keeping tender skin out of the sun. Their company, Koolsun, produces garments for babies and children that block 98 per cent of UVA and UVB rays. Now the tour operator has decided to provide a free Koolsun T-shirt to every child aged two or over who attends one of Simply Travel's holiday creches or children's clubs.
