ChargedUp, operator of a 3,000-strong network of phone charging stations across the UK, Netherlands and Germany, is modifying the design of its phone charging stations to dispense hand sanitiser instead. In an initiative dubbed CleanedUP, the company is offering to supply UK hospitals, supermarkets, train stations, pharmacies and other shops with hand sanitising stations at cost price.
ChargedUp says it is able to produce more than 1,000 units per month and accompanying Alcohol and Non-Alcohol sanitiser. CEO Hugo Tilmouth said: “With the majority of our usual network of pubs, clubs, cafes and shopping centres closing down due to the COVID-19 crisis, we wanted to find a way to use our skills, our resources and our network to help out. We put our heads together – virtually – and CleanedUp was born.”
