RCP promotes hand hygiene in schools

Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) has launched ‘Hands Up For Hand Hygiene’ - a campaign aimed at encouraging school-aged children to become more aware of the importance of good hand hygiene, now and in the future.

RCP has developed the Hands Up For Hand Hygiene initiative to engage young minds about the importance of thorough hand washing and sanitising. Designed as a computer game style mission, the campaign will call on children in classrooms across Europe to create an informative poster which outlines why hand hygiene is so crucial in the present day and the future. With a challenge to ‘spread the word, not the germs’, children are empowered to raise awareness of the importance of good hand hygiene among their peers.

The four winning designers will have their schools fitted out with premium RCP soap dispensers in washrooms and hand sanitiser dispensers throughout their schools, complete with a six-month supply of RCP refills. The winning designers will also receive £100 Amazon vouchers for their teacher to spend on fun activities or treats for pupils.
