Do I send my toiletries to Toiletries Amnesty?
No, please don’t send them to us! Our purpose is to help you find the nearest and best places to send your toiletries in your area. Please send them directly to the organisation(s) you choose, as we have no facility to store them.
I can’t find anywhere near me to donate to, what can I do?
You can send them to another organisation in the directory, or ideally, you can help us grow the directory by finding somewhere in your local area through asking friends or doing an internet search. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to help us grow the directory, and help get more people involved where you live.
I want to add an organisation to the directory. How do I do this?
If you’re an organisation you can register for an account. If you know of an organisation that you think should be included in the directory, you can let us know by email. We’d also love it if you’d tell organisations about the Toiletries Amnesty and help them get access to extra things that they need.
I work for a company that makes or sells toiletries. How can we help?
There are lots of ways you can get involved! Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can have a chat and find out more.
If you are a brand or organisation that would like to donate larger quantities of products, or would like to talk to us about how we can help repurpose your returned stock or surplus, please send us an email, we’d love to hear from you.
I am part of an organisation that wants to be removed from the directory. How do we do this?
If you’ve received so many donations you need to take a bit of a break, you can switch off your account temporarily by logging in. If you’d like to be removed permanently please speak to the person in your organisation who registered for the account and ask them first, if this is not possible please email us giving us your details and contact information, we’ll be in touch!
Can I donate partially used toiletries, e.g. shower gel that I only used once or twice?
You can! Make sure you check the directory for organisations who accept ‘Part used’ toiletries. Please don’t send used toothbrushes or razors though.
Can I donate miniatures (travel-size products or hotel freebies), or only full-size toiletries?
Absolutely! These are great for everyone, and especially useful for homeless shelters and hostels where they can give them to individuals who can drop in for showers.
Can I sign my organisation up and ask for items for prizes and giveaways?
No, that’s not what we’re here for. The Toiletries Amnesty sets out to help share good things with people who need them and are living in hygiene poverty. We can’t help you with gift sets for your giveaway.
Can I join your mailing list?
Got another question?
Drop us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
