Every Domestos provides safer toilets in schools

Globally, one in three people don’t have access to a hygienic toilet. Every time you buy Domestos, you’re helping change this by helping Domestos provide cleaner and safer toilets to those who need them the most.

Waging a war against unsafe sanitation and poor hygiene

Having access to a clean and safe toilet is a right and not a privilege, but many people in South Africa do not have this basic human right. The implications are vast, ranging from lack of dignity and exposure to illness causing germs. That’s why Domestos has a multi-pronged approach to waging the war against unsafe sanitation and poor hygiene, including building or renovating toilets, hygiene education and maintenance programs, as well as advocacy campaigns that help rally South Africans to help end the sanitation crisis.

Since 2012, we've brought hygienic facilities to 29 million people globally

More than just spreading dangerous diseases, unsafe sanitation and poor hygiene can have a long-lasting impact on a child’s future. A missing toilet might not sound that harmful, but that lack of hygiene can greatly affect a learner’s mood and motivation, leading to missed school days. In 2020, Domestos built cleaner and safer toilets in 6 schools as part of the SAFE Initiative, reached 15 000 schools and 800 000 learners through the National Schools Hygiene Program, and educated Janitors in 23 000 schools about the importance of maintaining hygienic toilets in schools as part of the Cleaner Toilets Brighter Future program.

29 million people reached with cleaner, safer toilets

By 2030 Domestos will help 100 million people access improved standards of sanitation and hygiene globally

The war on poor sanitation isn’t going to be won overnight, but by choosing Domestos as your germ-killing brand, you’re helping millions of people across the world access cleaner and safer toilets.
