L’Occitane en Provence
Clean the World has received 186,400 individual hygiene products, donated by the committed beauty brand, L’Occitane en Provence, including essential bars of soap for distribution to shelters across America. With over 500,000 homeless and thousands more needing government assistance, there is a large population without access to soap amidst the spreading Coronavirus. Toiletries are one of the most requested items at shelters where people are at greater risk of contracting hygiene related illnesses.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, L’Occitane en Provence has processed close to 1.5 million bars of soap that will be delivered in cities all over the United States. This week, shipments were sent to New York, Washington state, Louisiana, Missouri, and Florida. The donated 27,400 bars of soap will supply Clean the World’s recycled soap production and the thousands of donated hygiene supplies will be included in hygiene kits that will be dispersed immediately to shelters all over the country.
Avon has donated $2 million worth of personal care products such as soap, body wash and skincare products to Feed the Children to support these families in need during this unprecedented time. Avon’s partner, Feed the Children, works closely with community partners like schools, civic organizations and food banks to serve the most vulnerable populations and others who may be experiencing difficulty due to a job loss in this uncertain environment.
Over the last sixteen years, Avon has donated over 15,000,000 pounds of personal care and beauty products, clothing, shoes and home essentials to Feed the Children for distribution to families in need.
