Enva donates 24,000 bottles of hand sanitiser to care sector

Industrial and environmental services provider, Enva, has donated 24,000 (250ml) bottles of hand sanitiser to care homes in Ireland, as the company continues to play its part in the battle against Covid-19.

Care and nursing homes in the vicinity of Enva’s eight facilities across Ireland were contacted by Enva with the stock distributed free of charge to those who needed it. The company has reengineered its supply chain in order to provide additional supplies of 100 per cent Isopropyl alcohol used to produce hand sanitiser.

Commenting on the donation, Enva’s Managing Director, Simon Dick, said: “The shortage of hand sanitiser has been widely reported in recent weeks. When members of our team recognised that we may be able to help using our existing supply chain, the company moved quickly to make this a reality.

“We continue to encourage our employees to identify ways we can support the battle against Covid-19 and are committed to supporting these initiatives wherever possible.”

The donation follows the recent announcement from Enva that it had modified its production line and diverted resources to increase manufacturing capacity for its disinfectant product ECOSAN by 300 per cent.

According to Enva, ECOSAN can be used to “disinfect buildings or streets and other large public spaces, helping break the chain of infection”.
