At Scrubbingtons we believe in empowering children to take care of their own personal hygiene. We also firmly believe that being clean is a basic human right. It shouldn't ever be a luxury or a privilege.
If you haven't heard of Beauty Banks their mission is simple - to ensure no-one has to suffer the indignity of being unclean. Right now the UK is a country where millions of families and individuals have to make the choice between buying food or washing themselves. Where school children are going to school unclean. Across the UK teachers are routinely buying toiletries for their pupils. 8 in 10 teachers said they have seen an increase in the numbers of pupils coming to school unwashed according to an In Kind Direct survey last year. 43% of the parents surveyed said they have had to forgo basic hygiene or cleaning products because they couldn’t afford them. The detrimental effect on children's self-esteem can impact friendships and education.
We 100% agree with Beauty Banks that this is not right or fair. They serve those in hygiene poverty with products they desperately need whilst lobbying government for change. It's beauty with purpose.
This Black Friday weekend, from Friday 29th November to midnight on Monday 2nd December, every time you buy one of our products we will donate another one to Beauty Banks to give to families who desperately need toiletries.
It's simple - you buy one, we give one. Thank you!
