In The Face of Disaster, Hygiene Kits to the Rescue

In 2017 when Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, over 70,000 people had to evacuate their homes and were left without proper sanitation supplies for days on end. 

When it comes to protecting families, we know nothing is more important than safety, especially during hard times. It often slips our minds the importance of basic necessities.  

But, being prepared means being equipped and your organization should always be ready when disaster strikes. In emergency situations, Hygiene Kits can mean the difference between sickness and health, especially amongst young children. At Bags in Bulk, we want you to always be ready with our lightweight, easy-to-carry, Hygiene Kits useful for immediate evacuation. 

The Kits

Our Hygiene Kits provide all the essential items your organization needs for families in need. We offer a variety of different kits, including Wholesale Basic, Wholesale Premium, and Wholesale Premium Plus. 

Each Kit includes travel size necessities such as a Toothbrush, Shampoo & Body Wash, Deodorant, Hair Combo, Shaving Razor & Cream, Antibiotic Ointment, Nail Filer, Tissues, Shower Cap, and a Resealable Clear Bag. 

 

For Your Family

We recommend keeping hygiene kits in the places you and your family members spend the most time. Think about it, the majority of us spend about 8 hours a day at work and while it would be nice,  emergencies don’t wait until we’re sitting on the couch to strike, so why not store one under your desk?

At home, it’s best to store hygiene kits on top of concrete floors, such as a garage, which are more stable during natural disasters such as earthquakes. Another good location would be a closet near the front door, just in case you need to run out. 

Other recommend storage locations would be your vehicle and children’s classroom, just in case because you just never really know.

For Your Organization

No matter the size of the situation, your organization should always be prepared for what can come instead of what you think is coming. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, no one could predict the magnitude of destruction it would cause.  Despite the planned use of the Superdome as an evacuation center, the football stadium did not have nearly enough supplies to house over 30,000 evacuees, especially when it came to personal care products desperately requested and needed. People rely on your help, be ready for them.
