Did you realise that inadequate sanitation is one of the biggest problems around the world, particularly in poorer countries, affecting approximately 2.5 billion people? Poor sanitation can have devastating effects on communities, causing disease and illnesses that can kill and, unfortunately, it is the children who are affected most and have the highest mortality rate.
Here at TGF we have suddenly realised how much we take good sanitation as the norm. We are lucky enough to have clean facilities, good water and we make sure that we follow basic hygiene rules such as washing our hands after we have been to the toilet.
Solving the issue and helping to improve sanitation isn’t an easy fix, but it is something that needs to be addressed, and the long term results are vital to protect the environment, alleviate health problems and to create a cleaner, greener society.
So how can we get involved and help spearhead an improvement in sanitation in developing countries? A simple way to do this is by buying specially marked bottles of Domestos. In partnership with the Unilever Foundation they are supporting the UNICEF’s Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) programme by contributing 5% of average proceeds received from every bottle sold.
Access to improved sanitation has been deemed a basic human right by the United Nations and so far CATS has helped to improve the lives of 13.5 million people in 50 countries with their behaviour change programme that promotes good hygiene practices, helps create demand for access to toilets and raises awareness of the sanitation crisis in order to reduce disease transmission.
There are many other ways to help support the CATS progamme. Have a look at this video to understand why you should spread the word about the benefits that CATS can bring to improve world sanitation.
So get involved and together we can make an impact in the future ensuring that environmental sustainability has been achieved throughout the globe.
