Lancashire-based hand sanitiser producer, Vital Life is set to donate over 1000 bottles of its bacteria-fighting product to The Hygiene Bank.
The donation comes in support of National Hygiene Week, a national initiative set up by The Hygiene Bank to help raise awareness about hygiene poverty that is a hidden crisis in the UK.
The annual event, which takes place from 5th - 11th July, aims to encourage everyone to ‘Look Up’ and help tackle hygiene poverty in their community.
For every sale of hand sanitiser between 5th July – 5th August, Vital Life has pledged to donate one bottle of hand sanitiser to The Hygiene Bank – committing to a minimum of 1000x hand sanitisers in total by the start of August.
The Hygiene Bank believe that basic hygiene is not a privilege. Its mission is to bring communities, businesses and thought leaders together to tackle hygiene poverty, by giving access to products and being a voice for change. It’s work with community partners across the UK helps supply personal care hygiene products to those who need it most.
Vital Life’s donations will go directly to The Hygiene Bank Darwen Project, an initiative set up to support those within the Blackburn and Darwen area. The donation of hygiene products will be distributed to a variety of charities such as ‘Hands of Hope’ as well as local schools and community projects who need support with hygiene poverty.
Lancashire-born Vital Life believe in vitality for all. Headquartered in Blackburn, Vital Life has made its mark producing high-quality hand sanitising gels that are gentle on skin but harsh on bacteria. All of Vital Life’s hand sanitisers are designed, tested and produced in the North West.
Samina Adam, Managing Director at Vital Life, said: “The partnership between Vital Life and The Hygiene Bank aims to increase awareness surrounding the importance of hygiene in our community. Vital Life’s donation is our contribution to the fight to end hygiene poverty in the UK – starting with a fantastic local Darwen charity.”
Edgar Penollar, CEO of The Hygiene Bank said: “We are extremely grateful to Vital Life for their support of National Hygiene Week and throughout the month of July. Their donation will help The Hygiene Bank deliver hygiene products to those of us living in poverty at this time.”
Vital Life responded to the increased demand for PPE during the global pandemic with a range of hand sanitiser gels, which proved hugely successful. Each hand sanitiser is specially formulated and comes in its own beautiful fragrance.
