Toiletries Amnesty has been featured in The Times‘ article ‘Old Lipsticks and bras wanted! 15 new ways to recycle your clutter’.

“Unless you’re firmly of the soap-and-water brigade, it’s impossible not to accumulate products that don’t quite hit the spot. Most charity shops will only accept unopened cosmetics, as does the Beauty Banks network, which distributes unused items to those in need, but that’s no use to those of us who actually try everything we buy. The brilliant Toiletries Amnesty connects those with spare cosmetics (opened or not) with those who need it most – homeless shelters, hospices, refugee services. I visit and find a homeless shelter in Brighton, 25 miles from me, where I’m soon going for work. They say they’re looking for, among many other things, deodorants, moisturisers and shampoos (which I have in abundance) and don’t mind if they’re partially used.” writes Fleur Britten for the Times.

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.
