simply the basics partnership

How is method supporting Simply the Basics?

founding partner of the Hygiene Bank Association™: method is the founding partner of the Simply the Basic's Hygiene Bank Association™, the first system in the world to connect existing hygiene service providers and to establish quality control standards for hygiene distribution. think of a network of food banks, but for quality hygiene products. method’s ongoing partnership supports database fees, staff time, marketing, and service grants to deserving members.

product support: method is providing support with ongoing product reinforcement, via Simply the Basics’ Hygiene Bank AssociationTM quarterly grant programs that aid newly developed and growing hygiene banks. These grants will be awarded to the deserving hygiene banks across the country to further close the gap in hygiene access and help them become more established to gain their footing and continue to serve communities in need.

education: To further raise awareness and education around hygiene insecurity, method worked with Simply the Basics to develop an engaging educational game that challenges users to “burst their bubble” on their hygiene insecurity knowledge. Check it out here.

Why are hygiene products considered essential?

Adequate hygiene is essential because it helps prevent life-threatening infections and other adverse health effects. A 2016 national survey found that 67% of the people experiencing homelessness reported one or more preventable health conditions and 34% reported that their health made it difficult for them to keep a job or to handle daily living activities. The average life expectancy in the homeless population is estimated between 42 and 52 years, compared to 78 years in the general population (source).
Simply the Basics is inspired by Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the philosophy that people are unable to focus on any goals (job security, housing, relationship building, sobriety, mental health, and self-actualization) if they are unable to meet their needs at the very basic level (food, shelter, clothing education, and hygiene).

Why is quality and choice important when it comes to hygiene distribution? (e.g., why can’t people use homemade remedies?)

Every person is unique and requires hygiene products that address their unique needs. For example, an elderly individual may have different dental hygiene needs than a child. Poor oral hygiene caused by not having access to essential hygiene products like toothpaste can lead to life-threating illnesses (Cleveland Clinic). That’s why Simply the Basics believes that hygiene products are essential to human health and to helping people reach greater goals.
