Dan moved on to Union Carbide working in the Consumer Products Division (Eveready Batteries, Prestone, Glad) focusing on Glad Products. The Glad/Prestone brands changed ownership through an leveraged buyout, creating First Brands Corp. Daniel’s work on Glad continued, but soon included the first clumping Cat Litter (Scoop Away), and Starter Logs (fire starters).
