We are making significant changes to our product (more news to follow!) and we are donating our old product to In Kind Direct. Read more about their work below:
Greener Cleaner and In Kind Direct
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1996, In Kind Direct is a charity working to ensure
everyone has access to life’s essentials and that no usable product goes to waste. Through partnerships with manufacturers and retailers, In Kind Direct’s model distributes new, donated products to charitable organisations across the UK.
Its unique service is a lifeline to thousands of charities helping vulnerable people, allowing them to spend more of their money on support, not supplies. Companies donate a wide range of unused products such as personal care items, cleaning products, toys, books and technology, which are sorted, picked and packed at its warehouse before being dispatched to its charity network. So far, In Kind Direct has distributed £200m worth of goods to over 9700 charities, helping millions of people!
From homeless shelters to women’s refuges, foodbanks to schools and community centres, thousands of charities across the country have a constant need for cleaning products to maintain their facilities and distribute to their beneficiaries. With many charities operating on limited
budgets, saving money on cleaning products can be essential to free up funds to support beneficiaries. According to In Kind Direct’s 2019 Impact Survey, a significant 74% of responding charitable organisations stated they rely on In Kind Direct to simply keep going, whilst 98% indicated their demand for household products had either remained consistent or increased on the previous year.
To date, the charity estimates over 25,000 tonnes of products have been saved from landfill by distributing it through its network to those who need it, making product giving not only good for the charities but also for the planet.
