With most of the world social distancing, it is crucial to frequently wash our clothes. It is even more important for front line workers, and those working in essential services where there is more human-to-human exposure. Due to these increased laundry needs, many organizations are in dire need of cleaning supplies like laundry detergent.
"One of Tru Earth’s core values is that consistent small actions can lead to big change in the world. For us, this is just another small way we can contribute to making the world a better place” Said Co-Founder Ryan McKenzie
Tru Earth plans on continuing their pursuit to give back, but they need help connecting with organizations in need.
“We have been reaching out to hospitals and shelters across North America, but could really use the public’s help. We need help connecting with the right individuals inside these organizations.” said Co-Founder Brad Liski.
