Essity’s commitment is to work with and have an open dialogue with teachers, teaching bodies and other relevant organisations to identify practical, affordable and easily implementable solutions that improve hygiene standards and education.

Once actionable solutions have been agreed, Essity will be piloting the solutions in a number of primary schools to assess the positive impact improving hygiene levels within school toilets has on education and wellbeing over a six-month period.

The results of this pilot study along with findings from the research will be shared with government, local authorities, MPs and other interested parties to initiate discussion as to whether such solutions should be introduced into all UK primary schools.

Alongside this, Essity will create unbranded educational resources and share these with educators to make it easier for them to teach children better hygiene skills.
