A UK-wide public information campaign has been launched to advise the public on how to slow the spread of coronavirus and reduce the impact on NHS services.
The government-funded campaign will include public health advice on how people can protect themselves from infection.
Similar to the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign used for flu and norovirus, it will promote important hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
An effective infection control programme can reduce the transference of infectious diseases, caused by micro-organisms, which can be spread in various ways, including direct or indirect human contact.
Regular or frequent disinfection of high touch surfaces will reduce the number of micro-organisms on these surfaces and help to prevent their spread.

“Basic hygiene such as washing our hands regularly and using tissues when we cough and sneeze can play an important role in minimising the spread of viruses like this.”
– Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock
Futures Supplies, have a large range of Hand Washing, Hand Sanitisers, Facial Tissues, Gloves, Surface Sanitisers and Wipes available.
Loowy is a new, revolutionary way to clean toilets, replacing the old fashioned and dirty toilet brush with a silicone, antibacterial and water repellent waveform blade for cleanliness right up to the edge.
It’s also quick-drying, easy rinse and durable.
By staying clean and clog-free, it lasts far longer than a conventional toilet brush – saving money and reducing plastic waste.
Futures Supplies now supply a full range of compostable refuse sacks, bin liners and waste caddy liners.
We hope this new biodegradable, compostable range will help support your sustainability aims.
Manufactured from Ecopond® biodegradable plastic, using starch and lactide-based derivatives of plant sources, these products are fully compliant with the European composting standard, which requires more than 90% of the plastic mass to convert into biomass, CO2 and water, with no harmful residue.
We are delighted to have been accredited by the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association, achieving 100% compliance with the Associations ‘Accredited Distributor Scheme’.
Representing the major manufacturers and distributors of cleaning & hygiene products, the CHSA operates four independently audited accreditation schemes. Three for manufacturers of soft tissue products, plastic refuse sacks and industrial cotton mops and one for distributors.
The aim of the schemes is to drive up standards in the industry and to ensure that what’s on the label is in the box so the customer always gets what they order and importantly what they pay for.
We always strive to deliver the added value of quality products, backed up with an exceptional customer experience. We welcome the opportunity to be independently audited by external bodies to endorse our high standards and provide our customers with evidence of this.
We were absolutely delighted to achieve 100% compliance. We hope this accreditation provides our customers with further confidence and the assurance that we supply only products that meet the CHSA Distributor Accreditations rigorous high standards, and that they can be sure that what’s on the box is in the box.
The CHSA Distributor Accreditation Scheme, which was introduced in 2017, requires regular periodic site audits to ensure conformance. Distributors must also sign a declaration that they will only stock and offer for sale CHSA accredited products or products that conform to the same standards as required by the relevant CHSA Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes.
