Wu-Tang Clan have launched a line of all-natural hand sanitizers, wittily named “Protect Ya Hands,” as part of their new ‘A Better Tomorrow’ collection.
The collection is the group’s new product line that aims to benefit non-profit organizations such as Ottawa Food Bank, Ottawa Mission Foundation and Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario during COVID-19. ‘A Better Tomorrow’ is made in collaboration with member RZA’s lifestyle company 36 Chambers and Ottawa’s Mayor Jim Watson.
Included in the collection is the “Protect Ya Hands” hand sanitizer, which makes reference to the group’s 1993 hit “Protect Ya Neck.” The item is described on the collection’s website as an “all-natural, plant-based, vegan hand sanitizer with a spicy citrus scent.” For every bottle sold, a free hand sanitizer will be donated to the Ottawa Mission Foundation, as well as other homeless shelters in Canada.

According to a statement on their website, ‘A Better Tomorrow’ was inspired by a campaign Wu-Tang had backed for Ottawa Food Bank earlier in April. Thanks to the rap group’s support, the charity received up to $280,000 in contributions. “In turn, the thousands of people who donated have inspired us to further lend a hand during this unprecedented crisis,” the statement from Wu-Tang Clan read.
On the music front, the hip hop group dropped their latest EP in May 2019. The project was inspired by and named after Of Mics and Men, a Showtime docu-series about the group.
