Hand Hygiene: Sounds Easy, Right?

Germs. They’ve been a part of our lives long before COVID-19 decided to make its debut. While the information on how to handle this highly infectious virus may continue to change, one thing will remain constant: regular hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of infection or germs.

Make It a Habit

Hand washing is and will always be the first line of defense in preventing the spread of germs. Even before the global pandemic, hand washing is the most effective way to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria.

The exposure to colder temperatures increases these viruses’ ability to thrive and spread while also reducing immune responses in our bodies, making it more difficult to fight off these germs.

Now more than ever, consumers are making hand hygiene a priority, utilizing soaps and sanitizers to ensure the safety of their health and prevent the spread of germs to families, friends, and other individuals one may come in contact with.

Not only are we in a global pandemic, but for those of us currently enduring the colder temperatures, we’re also amidst the flu and cold season. Fortunately, because of the thoughtful preventative measures we’ve taken since last Spring, our enhanced personal hygiene measures have kept these viruses and respiratory disease infections unusually low.


How Has COVID-19 Influenced the Packaging Industry?

With consumers washing and sanitizing their hands more frequently, the need for dispensers, sprayers, and containers has become of utmost importance. The packaging industry has continued to receive high demand for products from travel-size hand sanitizers and automatic sanitizing dispensers and sprayers, to PPE items such as gloves, masks, and eye protection.

The bottom line? As consumers continue to keep their health a top priority, it’s our responsibility to ensure they are equipped with the products they need. HBI is ready to take on your next project.
