WE EXIST TO END HYGIENE POVERTY IN THE UK
We're like Foodbanks, but we supply personal care and hygiene essentials instead of food, to people in the UK who can't afford to be clean. We believe that everybody is a some body and we all have the right to be clean - our physical health, mental health and wellbeing depends on it.
We don't judge and we don't stigmatise. We exist to support those in our communities who need a hand up, not a hand out.
You can wish for change, hope for change, pray for change or you can drive the change you want to see.
Ours is beauty with purpose. Join us.
OUR NEW LIMITED EDITION
BEAUTY BANKS COSMETIC BAGS
As part of our four year long partnership with the awesome retailer Superdrug we have collaborated with four of our influencer friends, Sam and Nic Chapman, Gary Thompson aka The Plastic Boy, Cher Webb and, of course our co-founder Sali to launch four limited edition cosmetic bags.
Each bag has been designed by the content creator and our wonderfully talented friends at Design Bridge. The bags are on sale now at Superdrug stores and on Superdrug.com. Each bag costs £4.99, with 100% of profits donated to Beauty Banks (expected to be £50,000+).
Each cosmetic bag is made from fabric created from reclaimed and recycled plastic bottles.
This is our homemade film (can you tell?!) that we created for the Third Sector 2020 Charity Awards. We were nominated alongside The Red Cross, The Samaritans and six other fantastic charities. We were thrilled to come in second place as 'highly commended'.
