Our partnership with The Hygiene Bank

GIVE THE GIFT OF CLEAN

Soap & Glory have partnered with The Hygiene Bank since 2020 to help tackle hygiene poverty, and last year they donated over 20,000 products to the charity.

From January 13th 2021 their donation campaign is back, and for every sale of Clean On Me 500ml sold between 13th January-9th March 2021 in Great Britain, they’ll be donating a product to The Hygiene Bank, to support people living in hygiene poverty.

WHAT IS HYGIENE POVERTY?

Hygiene poverty is being unable to afford the everyday items most of us take for granted. One in five people in the UK are locked in poverty, having to choose to heat their home, pay rent, eat or be clean. Not being able to feel clean not only has a crippling impact on an individual’s self-esteem but also limit educational and career progress. 

Everyone has the right to a dignified life and that’s why Lizzy Hall, Boots’ 2019 Woman of the Year, created The Hygiene Bank – a similar concept to a food bank, but for hygiene, beauty and personal grooming products. Not all superheroes wear capes…

WHAT IS THE HYGIENE BANK?

The Hygiene Bank is a grassroots, people powered charity, grounded in community. Their network of banks exist to ensure those living in poverty have access to the basics. This is about dignity, self-confidence and mental wellbeing. They believe that feeling clean should not be a luxury or a privilege in the modern world and so they work to inspire social change.

The Hygiene Bank has a network of 340 volunteers (and counting!) across the UK who collect toiletries and re-distribute them to local charities.

They collect new, unused and in-date toiletries, hygiene basics, beauty and personal care essentials – including deodorant, shower gel, shampoo, make-up, nappies and laundry detergent.
