“Whilst going completely Marie Kondo might not be for everyone, it’s likely that in clearing out you may have found untouched or unopened products which you forgot you even bought (and maybe wonder why you bought them in the first place). The good news is that you can turn your buyer’s remorse into something more positive and save decent products from going to waste and clogging up landfill sites, by donating them to people who may need or will enjoy them,” writes Jessica Jones for The Independent.

“Organisations such as Toiletries Amnesty, The Hygiene Bank and Beauty Banks also help to deliver unused items to people desperately in need of general hygiene products. Hygiene poverty is a massive issue in the UK, with over one-third of people and over half of 18-24 year olds having to go without or cut down on hygiene essentials. Coronavirus has only made matters worse. For many who struggled to get these products before, a pandemic that has taken away a job might mean choosing between a meal or a wash.”

Can you help keep the Toiletries Amnesty directory free to use?

We don’t charge organisations to list on our directory – toiletries and hygiene products are an essential daily need and we aim to provide free access to toiletries to as many people as we can.

Toiletries Amnesty is self-funded. We don’t receive any government funding or subsidies, but continue to support millions of people every year. 

Can you help us continue this vital work?
