What Is Pinchapoo?

Pinchapoo (slang for Pinch-a-shampoo) is proudly responsible for creating a cheeky hotel toiletry ‘pinching’ movement 12 years ago… and for good reason!
Using this world first, modern day Robin Hood concept together with landfill stock rescue programs, we have redistributed more than 8.5 MILLION personal hygiene products to hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged men, women and children nationally each year. Pinchapoo is the biggest national not-for-profit supplier of personal hygiene essentials and works with over 700 + leading organisations, community groups and government institutions as a total hygiene solution, providing a reliable source of customised, culturally appropriate and gender inclusive packs to EVERYBODY in EVERY situation of need.

Our team work passionately to advocate access to hygiene products for both men and women EQUALLY. 1 in 5 Australian experience hygiene poverty and are forced to make the heart-breaking choice between buying food and personal hygiene products every week. It is our vision that EVERY Australian has access to this basic human right essential to our mental and physical wellbeing and this alarming statistic eradicated.

Kate left home after a domestic violence incident that nearly cost her, her life with just her toothbrush. That was the real moment her Pinchapoo journey began.

Pinchapoo tackling Australia’s hygiene poverty crisis

Everyday many Australians experience hygiene poverty, face the tough decision between buying hygiene products or feeding themselves and their family. At Bank First, we care and we empower. This doesn’t mean we care only for our customers in healthcare and education alike. We also care about their communities, whether you’re family, friends, patients or students. No one should go without hygiene essentials in any situation, let alone when they are vulnerable. That’s why Pinchapoo is such a great organisation that we support.
