In the wake of COVID-19, bento box production in Japan collapsed while demand for hand sanitiser soared. As a result, Cleanse EX, a manufacturer of antibacterial hand gel, has collaborated with Ohishiya, a manufacturer of soy sauce bottles, to launch #SafeHandFish.  Responding to a creative brief from the UN, their joint-initiative repurposes fish-shaped soy sauce bottles as hand sanitiser containers. The traditionally red caps of the soy sauce containers have been changed to blue, a colour associated with both cleanliness and the UN. #SafeHandFish provides their soy sauce hand sanitiser containers free of charge to restaurants and food delivery businesses across Japan in a bid to aid community hygiene efforts.
