This Global Handwashing Day, Kohler is celebrating the importance of handwashing and highlighting the ongoing need for universal hand hygiene. A universal solution requires universal effort. At Kohler, we are committed to contributing our safe water and sanitation expertise to partnerships and products that make a positive impact—in our own communities and around the world.

There are many ways to play a role in expanding access to hand hygiene. Hand hygiene can take the form of innovative touchless faucets or hygiene-improvement projects in communities and schools in India and China. No matter the community served or the solution provided, access to safe water and sanitation promotes wellbeing for all.

As we continue innovating solutions to address safe water and sanitation challenges, it is important to come together on days like Global Handwashing Day to raise awareness and drive inspiration to unite for global hand hygiene.
