Thank you to everyone who got involved in our #WhatItMeansToBeClean Campaign!
Throughout the six weeks of the campaign we were asking what being clean means to you? Perhaps it is using your favourite shampoo or shower gel in the shower; or using your favourite laundry detergent and fabric softener when you wash your clothes; or having spare toiletries in your gym bag? Hygiene poverty is the inability to afford many of the everyday essential hygiene and cleaning items that most of us take for granted. It is one family sharing a toothbrush; it is using period products for longer than is recommended; it is using the same dish soap to wash the dishes, clothes and people in the house.
We want to end hygiene poverty in Ireland, but we cannot do it alone. The aim of this campaign was to start conversations and to get people involved. This was a huge success and saw over twenty wonderful individuals sign-up to volunteer with their local project. Thank you all so much!
Special mention in particular to our two Ambassadors: Grainne Gallanagh & Danielle Websdale for getting involved in the campaign and shining a light on the reality of hygiene poverty in Ireland and about what we do.
