Global Handwashing Day is always a day of optimism at Kohler. We are inspired by the efforts of so many organizations that are raising awareness regarding the health benefits of hand hygiene and working to solve the lack of access to basic handwashing 2.3 billion people currently experience.

We believe the KOHLER Cleanse® handwashing faucet, part of our Innovation for Good® WaSH product portfolio, is one solution that can make a difference. In alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water & Sanitation, we’re developing strategic partnerships around the world to bring scalable, sustainable solutions to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene challenges.

Our commitment to hand hygiene and well-being drives development of innovative touchless faucets for our customers as well as hygiene-improvement projects in our own communities and around the world. No matter the community served or the solution provided, access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene helps safeguard everyone’s health. Here’s to clean hands within everyone’s reach!
