Hygiene Poverty in the news

The Product Giving Revolution makes the news

On 7 December 2017 we launched "Join the Product Giving Revolution", our manifesto backed by 21 of our major product donors. Our campaign calls on manufacturers and retailers to consider donating their surplus product to In Kind Direct for distribution to thousands of UK charities.

Our campaign caught the attention of the media and has sparked a conversation about how much good companies can do by choosing to donate their surplus. We know there is over £2 billion of consumer product surplus that we are not currently accessing, despite having distributed £185 million value of goods over the past 20 years.

If you think your company could help - and could take the simple step to integrate product giving into your existing strategy, please get in touch with us by email or telephone.
