Handwashing at the right moments has never been more important, but do we always remember to do it when we should?
Sometimes the simplest of actions can have the biggest impact. Like handwashing, for instance, one of the most effective actions we can all take to protect ourselves and prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as many other infectious diseases.
You may not think twice about turning the tap on, applying soap and washing your hands. But this simple act remains a privilege for many. Three billion people, or 40% of the world’s population, do not have access to a facility to wash their hands at home.
This Global Handwashing Day, LIXIL will celebrate the tap, the unsung hero that helps us keep clean, by asking you #Didyouwashyourhands?
As a leading maker of faucets, we are proud that LIXIL products touch the lives of one billion people every day. We are committed to helping everyone wash their hands, but we need your help to do more.
