L’Occitane En Provence Donates Over 186K Units of Hygiene Supplies to Clean the World to Fight the Spread of COVID-19 in the United States
Clean the World to receive 186,400 individual hygiene products, donated by the committed beauty brand, including critically essential bars of soap for distribution to shelters across America.
Clean the World Foundation, a leader in global health dedicated to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and global sustainability, received a sizable donation of close to 200,000 hygiene products from L’Occitane en Provence, a global manufacturer and distributor of natural beauty and well-being products. The donation included much-needed hygiene supplies including: 74,000 (50ml) bottles of shampoo, 40,000 (50ml) bottles of conditioner, 12,000 (50ml) bottles of shower gel, 33,000 (50ml) bottles of body lotion, 27,400 (50g + 75g) bars of soap.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Clean the World has processed close to 1.5 million bars of soap that will be delivered in cities all over the United States. This week, shipments were sent to New York, Washington state, Louisiana, Missouri, and Florida. The donated 27,400 bars of soap will supply Clean the World’s recycled soap production and the thousands of donated hygiene supplies will be included in hygiene kits that will dispersed immediately to shelters all over the country.
Hygiene supplies are not federally subsidized. With over 500,000 homeless and thousands more needing government assistance, there is a large population without access to soap amidst the spreading Coronavirus. Toiletries are one of the most requested items at shelters where people are at greater risk of contracting hygiene related illnesses. Clean the World is working around the clock to provide critical hygiene essentials to the vulnerable people who need them.
