Submitted by Essity
GREEN BAY, Wis., September 21, 2023 /CSRwire/ - As fans return to Lambeau Field this week for the home opener, the Green Bay Packers are once again teaming up with Tork®, the professional hygiene brand of leading global hygiene and health company Essity, for the 2023 “Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch” campaign.
The campaign, which kicked off this week and will run through the first five home games of the Packers season, aims to raise awareness and promote the benefits of proper hygiene for all. Additionally, the Packers and Tork will provide community partners with essential hygiene products that help reduce environmental impact.
For every catch the Packers make during the first five home games of the season (Sept. 24 through Nov. 19), Tork will donate $250 worth of safe, effective and sustainably produced hygiene products, such as paper roll towels and toilet paper (up to $30,000 in products) to local nonprofit organizations working to improve the well-being of those in need.
“We’re proud to partner again with Tork on the Tackle Hygiene Campaign,” said Chad Watson, director of sales and business development for the Packers. “For years, we have relied on Tork hygiene products on gameday and every day and we look forward to making a positive impact in the community while cheering for Packers catches. Throughout the campaign, our fans can learn about the tools they need to stay healthy as well as the importance of hygiene and sustainability, all while supporting the team. We look forward to another great season of Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch.”
To date, in partnership with the Packers, Tork has donated $54,500 worth of sustainable hygiene products to local charities in Northeast Wisconsin. This year’s recipients will be:
“Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is critical at stadiums like Lambeau Field – which can hold more than 80,000 fans – as well as within our communities,” said Cindy Stilp, Marketing Communications Director at Essity. “Together with the Packers, we are proud to spearhead community initiatives, like Tackle Hygiene with Every Catch, in order to deliver hygienic experiences to fans, while giving back to those in the community who rely on programs like Pillars and Harbor House in Northeast Wisconsin, for essential services.”
