Aussie social enterprise teams up with global hotel chains

Global hotel chains Rydges Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton and Ramada Hotels are among the first to stock Australian social enterprise Thankyou’s new amenities range.

The launch of the new amenities range allows Thankyou to expand its reach into the hotel and accommodation sector whilst further contributing to their mission to help end global poverty through redistributing wealth from consumer spending.

Thankyou is an FMCG personal care brand in Australia’s grocery market, known for its hand wash, body wash, lotions, scrubs and sanitisers that exist to work towards ending extreme poverty.

After all the costs of running its business, all that Thankyou makes goes toward funding impactful change-makers who are serving the world’s poor.

The range consists of a full-body experience for consumers, featuring a combination of some of Thankyou’s best-selling personal care products as well as the debut of Thankyou liquid hair-care products. The amenities are 100 per cent vegan friendly and are not tested on animals.

Like the rest of Thankyou’s personal care range, the amenities products contribute to Thankyou’s unique all-for business model, which raises and gives funds to change-making organisations in the fight against global poverty.

Thankyou has launched the range in partnership with Hunter Amenities, a prominent global supplier of hotel amenities for world-leading brands.

“We’re proud to create a hotel amenities range that puts the guest experience at the centre whilst ensuring the range exceeds the quality and sustainability standards expected from world-class hotels,” said Kirk Pereira, Thankyou’s global new business development manager.

“Our partnership with Hunter Amenities and our hotel partners, Rydges Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Ramada Hotels, allows Thankyou to have a truly global reach, introducing Thankyou and the movement behind Thankyou to consumers globally.

“As a result of a movement of millions of people taking small steps to create big change, we’ve been able to raise and give $17 million to help in the fight against global poverty. The launch of our amenities range is going to continue to encourage hotel and accommodation services and consumers alike to continue to make these conscious, small steps that amount to significant, long-lasting change.”

The range is available in Rydges Hotels & Resorts Australia, Ramada Hotels New Zealand and Canopy by Hilton, with the Canopy by Hilton chain to be stocking Thankyou amenities across all global property locations by the end of 2022.
