Metsä Tissue chooses The Hygiene Bank as 2025 Sustainability Awards nominated charity

* Metsa-Awards-2025.jpgAs part of its 2025 Sustainability Awards event, to be held on 19th March 2025, Metsä Tissue has chosen to support The Hygiene Bank, a UK-registered grassroots charity and social movement dedicated to ensuring that everyone living in the UK has access to essential hygiene products.

Founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to basic hygiene products, The Hygiene Bank works tirelessly to address hygiene poverty and advocate for systemic change. Its network of local projects is powered by volunteers, who collect donated hygiene products and distribute them to people in need via local community partners such as food banks, schools and shelters. It challenges the injustice of hygiene poverty and advocates for a future where everyone has access to the basics they need.

"Metsä Tissue has chosen The Hygiene Bank as our preferred charity for the event because we know that access to good hygiene can promote health for everyone," says Mika Paljakka, SVP for UK & Ireland, Metsä Tissue. "The Hygiene Bank aims to ensure that everyone across the UK has access to everyday hygiene products, protecting their mental and physical health, and their social wellbeing. Its network of local community partners and its help for those in poverty, in particular women and children, is aligned with Metsä Tissue's strategic goals of locality and social value, where children's charities are a priority.

Ruth Brock, CEO of The Hygiene Bank, is thrilled. "This partnership not only helps us provide the basic hygiene essentials to people pulled into hygiene poverty across the UK, but also highlights the power of unity in making a difference," she says. "Together, we can end hygiene poverty, once and for all."

In addition to the funds raised at the 2025 Sustainability Awards ceremony, Metsä Tissue will be supporting The Hygiene Bank between now and 19th March 2025, and encouraging its customers and partners to do the same.

The Sustainability Awards were founded in partnership with the Cleaning & Services Support Association (www.cssa-uk.co.uk) in 2023 with the aim of shining a spotlight on sustainability across the cleaning & hygiene industry. The 2025 Sustainability Awards ceremony will be held at the Pelligon in Canary Wharf in London, on 19th March 2025.

Details of the awards and how to enter are available on the 2025 Sustainability Awards website. Nominations are free to enter and the deadline for entry is 31st August 2024.
