Pacific Sands Adds Powder Product Filling Facility

New Facility Increases Powdered Laundry and Cleaning Product Filling Capacity to an Estimated $200,000+ per Week

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - July 17, 2008) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCBB: PFSD), developer and manufacturer of the OXY-Boost™ brand of cleaning and laundry powders as well as an extensive portfolio of nontoxic and 'low-chem,' environmentally friendly cleaning and water management solutions, announced today that the company has installed a high speed powder mixing and filling line.

An initial test run filling the company's best-selling OXY-Boost product demonstrated the line capable of consistently producing 5,280 units of product per work shift or approximately $210,000 in retail product per single shift work week. Management estimates that a recent private label order of its chlorine free OXY-Boost Deck and House Wash which took three employees seven work days to fill will, for future orders, take two employees less than a single work day.

"Our ability to now manufacture all of our products, even the 'long-run' orders 'in-house' dramatically enhances our competitive advantage in the earth, health and kid-friendly consumer products market on a number of significant fronts," said PFSD CEO Michael Wynhoff.

Wynhoff added that the company has now achieved its goal of manufacturing independence and is now able to produce the bulk of its portfolio of more than 150 SKUs and private label products entirely in-house.
