2020 Strategy Recap

  • During the period, we donated close to $50 million worth of products including Clorox liquid bleach, Glad trash bags, Clorox disinfecting wipes, Burt’s Bees lip balms and Kingsford charcoal. Working primarily with our partner, the American Red Cross, some of our donations in the U.S. went toward helping victims of natural disasters, including seven major hurricanes, floods in multiple states and wildfires in California. Outside the U.S., we provided assistance following a typhoon in the Philippines; an earthquake in Ecuador; floods in Canada and Peru; and global disease outbreaks such as Ebola in West Africa and Zika, for which we offered support in the Dominican Republic. Through The Clorox Company Foundation Employee Emergency Assistance Fund, we also helped 48 employees directly impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
