The Hygiene Bank has launched an exciting new charity partnership with Soap & Glory, championing the right for everyone to feel clean. As part of a 2-year collaboration, activity will begin with Soap & Glory donating to the charity for every Soap & Glory purchase in Boots stores and at boots.com between 1 March- 5 May 2020. Through the donation mechanic the brand will give at least 15,000 full size Clean On Me™ Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel’s to the charity, allowing consumers to give the gift of clean.
Soap & Glory is a leading brand for indulgent bathing and body care, and we are really excited they have chosen The Hygiene Bank as their official charity partner in the UK.
Today, a fifth of our population are locked in poverty with more and more people relying on foodbanks. Hygiene poverty is not being able to afford many of the everyday hygiene and personal grooming basics that most of us take for granted.
The Hygiene Bank was set up to provide people in crisis with access to these basics and help restore dignity, because feeling clean shouldn't be a luxury.
We are extremely grateful for all products that are generously donated, but thanks to this partnership we will now be able to offer families and individuals some luxury self-care with a bottle of Clean On Me. - Lizzy Hall, founder of The Hygiene Bank
Clean On Me™ is a cult fan favourite, with skin loving mandarin peel extract and built-in body lotion. One unit is sold every 91 seconds in the UK, and Soap & Glory will donate over 1.5m washes to the charity.
Boots will also be hosting The Hygiene Bank donation bins in 25 stores throughout the UK, with customers able to purchase contributions in-store or drop off unused toiletries.
In celebration of #InternationalWomensDay our founder, Lizzy Hall, chatted to the team at Soap & Glory about why and how she set up The Hygiene Bank.
