Scotch-Brite™ Clean Up Project benefits UP PGH Cancer Institute

Scotch-Brite™, through its The Cleanup Project, helped the Cancer Institute of the UP-PGH sanitize its facilities as part of the brand’s regular advocacy to help clean various communities it serves. Scotch-Brite™has been driving its reputation of providing brilliant cleaning tools to help make the world a brighter place.

Volunteer employees of 3M Philippines, along with the Cancer Institute’s staff, used Scotch-Brite™ cleaning tools to make the cancer facility cleaner and brighter in time for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The activity covered the clinic, wards, and the rest of the Cancer Institute building. It also coincided with the Cancer Institute’s quarterly general cleaning schedule.

The Cancer Institute was closed to all patients during the cleanup to avoid inconvenience and ensure thorough implementation of the project. Part of this project is a donation of brand new Scotch-Brite™ cleaning tools courtesy of 3M Philippines to help the cancer facility sustain its maintenance and cleanliness policies and practices. The donated cleaning tools included outdoor gloves, furniture cloth, mops, mop wringer bucket, among many others.

We at 3M are committed to help provide people with cleaner, brighter environments. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to give them efficient and high-quality cleaning tools that our Scotch-Brite brand is known for. Helping the staff of the UP-PGH Cancer Institute implement their regular general cleaning is a great opportunity for us and our employees to see this commitment through, said Darwin Florendo, Home Care Division of 3M Philippines.
