Tork Announces Hygiene Partnership with Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles
Tork, the professional hygiene brand of leading global hygiene and health company Essity, is again partnering with the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles to kick off the 2022 "Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch" campaign. As part of this program, Tork and its respective NFL partners will work to raise awareness and promote the benefits of proper hygiene, and ultimately provide community partners with essential hygiene products that help reduce environmental impact.
"Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is critical at stadiums like Lambeau Field and Lincoln Financial Field – each of which can hold upwards of 70,000 fans – as well as within our communities," says Don Lewis, president of Professional Hygiene at Essity. "Together with the Packers and the Eagles, we are proud to spearhead community initiatives, like Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch, in order to deliver hygienic experiences to fans, while giving back to those in the community who rely on programs like Project HOME in Philadelphia, and Pillars and Harbor House in Green Bay and the Fox Cities, for essential services."
Tork Tackles Hygiene with the Green Bay Packers
Tork and the Packers are working together to support and give back to the Green Bay community. For every catch the Packers make during the first five home games of the season, Tork will donate $250 worth of safe, effective and sustainably produced hygiene products, such as hand sanitizer, wet wipes, paper roll towels and toilet paper (up to $30,000 in products) to local nonprofit organizations that are working to improve the well-being of those in need. The purposes of both Pillars and Harbor House in Green Bay and the Fox Cities align with Essity's mission to breaking barriers to well-being.
"For years, we have relied on Tork hygiene products at Lambeau Field on gameday and every day to meet the needs of our players, staff and fans," says Chad Watson, director of Sales and Business Development for the Packers. "We're proud to again partner with Tork to promote hand hygiene in order to help prevent illness and give our fans, players and the community the tools they need to stay healthy. We're looking forward to highlighting the importance of hygiene and sustainability in our community through another season of the Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch campaign."
Last year, in partnership with the Packers, Tork donated $28,000 worth of sustainable hygiene products to local charities in the Green Bay and Milwaukee region.
Tork Tackles Hygiene with the Philadelphia Eagles
Similarly, for every catch the Eagles make, both at home and away, from September 19th through January 8th, Essity will donate Tork essential hygiene items including hand sanitizer, wet wipes and toilet paper to Project HOME, an organization that serves to alleviate the underlying causes of poverty and break the cycle of homelessness in Philadelphia. The total donation will amount up to $30,000. This partnership with Tork, the global leader in professional hygiene, demonstrates Essity's commitment to supporting a healthy, sustainable, and strong community and the Eagles' commitment to serving the greater Philadelphia area.
"We always strive to provide the greatest gameday experience for our fans. In order to do so, we recognize that we must maintain high standards of cleaning and disinfection at Lincoln Financial Field and the NovaCare Complex," says Brian Napoli, vice president of Corporate Partnerships, Philadelphia Eagles. "The use of innovative products and market-leading services from Tork enhance our commitment to sustainability and enable us to keep our fans and community safe. We are excited to once again partner with Tork on this campaign, and further support the important mission of Project HOME."
Last year, alongside the Eagles, Tork donated $26,500 worth of innovative and sustainable Tork hygiene solutions to Project HOME.
