Pacific Sands (PFSD) to Ramp Up Production Capacity in Anticipation of 100% + Sales Growth

Company Prepared to Meet 'Overwhelming Demand' in 2008

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCBB: PFSD), which manufactures the 'low-chem' ecoone® lines of pool and spa water treatment solutions, and recently acquired 'Natural Choices Home Safe Products, LLC' announced today that the company is ramping up its production capability to meet the demands of anticipated growth in excess of 100% in the coming year.

"The recent acquisition of the Natural Choices 'home safe' product lines and its accompanying custom label business, combined with more than 45% growth in ecoone® pool and spa product sales, has generated an overwhelming demand on our in-house liquid filling capacity," said Pacific Sands President and CEO, Michael Wynhoff. "Our current liquid filler line is designed for larger runs of a limited number of SKU's. The Natural Choices model is primarily geared toward shorter runs of numerous different products." Wynhoff continued, "As evidenced by our 14 consecutive quarters of same quarter sales growth, we are committed to increasing our revenues and look forward to meeting demand in a timely manner."

The Company is scheduled to install an automated, quick changeover, liquid filling line on March 20 as well as a powder filling facility in April to handle the increasing demand for its 'Oxy-Boost' and private label products. Additionally, the Company is working to increase the capacity and automation of its exiting liquid filling system.

Natural Choices, prior to being purchased by Pacific Sands, used contract fillers for the majority of its large liquid and powder product production orders.

Management anticipates that the additional production capacity will reduce overall manufacturing cost of the Natural Choices products by as much as 15% to 18%. The Company has secured lease financing for the planned equipment upgrades and anticipates that the immediate cost savings and increased productivity will more than pay for added expenses immediately.

Pacific Sands, Inc., promoting earth, health, pet and kid-friendly chemistry solutions, is publicly traded on the NASDAQ OTCBB. The company's core ecoone® pool, spa and nontoxic household cleaning product lines deliver earth, health and kid-safer alternatives. More information is available at www.pacificsands.biz.
