Carex partners with UK government to promote #EnjoySummerSafely campaign

Carex, the UK’s No.1 hand hygiene brand, announces it is working in partnership with the UK government to support its #EnjoySummerSafely campaign. The government’s nationwide campaign is designed to encourage a safe and responsible return to summer and leisure activities, be it going shopping, enjoying the beach and tourist attractions, or visiting pubs and restaurants.

Working in partnership with the UK government, Carex, together with a number of leading brands, will launch promotional initiatives to encourage good hygiene behaviours and ‘Enjoy Summer Safely’.

As part of the campaign’s safety guidance, the UK population is reminded to wash their hands regularly and use sanitiser products when outside their home to stop the spread of COVID-19. During the outbreak, Carex significantly increased the manufacture of its Hand Wash and Hand Sanitiser products to ensure the unprecedented demand could be met. In addition, the Company has donated more than 500,000 bottles of Carex’s essential antibacterial products to a variety of charities and trusts across the country.

Carex, which is manufactured by international consumer products group PZ Cussons, is also encouraging consumers to consider the environment and reuse their hand wash bottles by using its eco-refill pouches.

Jonathan Myers, CEO of PZ Cussons, said: “I’m proud that Carex can play a key role in helping everyone get back to doing the things they love and to stay healthy. Our dedicated teams have been working tirelessly to increase production and ensure stores across the country are stocked up with Carex products so everyone can get outside and enjoy the summer safely.”

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “It is vital, as we carefully remove the restrictions that have had to be in place, that people act safely. Social distancing must be followed, or the virus will return. It’s only possible to enjoy summer if we all do that safely.

I’m grateful for all the businesses who are playing their part and have contributed to this campaign. Our new campaign marks an important moment in reminding everybody of the part we all need to play in limiting the transmission of the virus.

“It is so important to observe the rules that businesses have put in place. If you have symptoms, please get tested now to help stop the spread of the virus and protect the people around you.”
