Amsterdam, the Netherlands – 30 April 2014 – Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division has launched an art competition as part of the World Health Organization's (WHO) “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands” campaign. “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands”†is a global, annual WHO campaign designed to highlight the importance of hand hygiene in combating anti-microbial resistance (AMR) and is celebrated as part of World Hand Hygiene Day on 5 May.

The contest includes two categories. Participants will either create a piece of art out of a hand-shaped template that can be downloaded from the Diversey Care website or submit a photo capturing hands. The art should convey the theme: “creating a better way of life through hand hygiene”. The participants with the most creative submission in each category will receive an iPad. A team winner will also receive a lunch/dinner and educational materials regarding hand hygiene.

“Our participation in the ‘Save Lives: Clean Your Hands’ campaign is another example of our ongoing collaboration with the WHO,” said Dr Ilham Kadri, President of Diversey Care. “We have worked together on many projects over the years with the goal of creating a better way for life for current and future generations. We are pleased to be working with the WHO to promote the importance of hand hygiene.”

All of the art received will be added to the designs created by Diversey Care employees, customers and business partners. These murals will be displayed in the reception areas of Diversey Care local offices to demonstrate Diversey Care’s commitment to hand hygiene and support of the WHO. Submissions will be accepted between 5 and 31 May.

In addition to Diversey Care’s participation in the “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands” campaign, Diversey also supports the WHO’s “Five Moments of Hand Hygiene” and offers a complete range of hand care products that are simple to use and highly effective.
