Ecolab Provided More Than 142 Tons of In-Kind Product Donations for Global Disaster Relief in 2016

April 13, 2017

(Business Wire) During 2016, Ecolab Inc. continued its long-standing commitment to supporting communities in need by providing more than 142 tons of cleaning, sanitizing and public health products in support of natural disaster relief efforts throughout the world.

“After a natural disaster, cleaning and sanitizing products are needed to protect people and rebuild the community,” said Kris Taylor, Ecolab vice president of Community Relations. “When a natural disaster occurs, we direct our product resources to those who need them most.”

Working in partnership with non-profit organizations, Ecolab also donated nearly $1 million of cleaning, sanitizing and public health products in 2016 in support of relief efforts after floods in Louisiana, Texas and West Virginia, Hurricane Matthew in the southeastern U.S., and to hospitals, orphanages, fire and emergency response stations and emergency food relief centers in El Salvador, Honduras, Liberia, Romania and Sierra Leone.

“For more than 18 years, World Emergency Relief has been proud to work with Ecolab to provide cleaning, sanitizing and public health products to those in need,” said Kristy Scott, CEO of World Emergency Relief. “Ecolab’s consistent commitment to helping communities during their most difficult times is remarkable.”
