There are over 7 billion people on earth and the scariest thing is that 1 in 3 women worldwide don’t have access to a toilet (that is 2.4 billion people!) and are forced to go out in the open, which exposes them to shame, risk of attack, the spread of disease and rape.
This means there are more than 800 million women and girls between the ages of 15 and 49 years old are menstruating who don’t have a toilet to use. This affects so many other areas of their lives……It forces women and girls to miss six days a month from school and work which makes them fall behind and prevents them from supporting their families.
These women benefit in so many ways by having a clean, safe toilet to use – it improves their confidence, nutrition, productivity, gender equality and tackles poverty. To help end this sanitation crisis UNICEF and Domestos have partnered and are committed to help 25 million people have a access to a toilet by 2020.
All you have to do to help is buy a specially marked bottle of Domestos from July to December 2016 where each bottle contributes directly to the sanitation crisis. Easy done. You need to clean your house so why not help our sisterhood in the process?

To help bring this issue to life Domestos and UNICEF recently put a ‘see through loo’ at Bondi Beach to see how people would feel about having to go to the toilet in the open. I don’t know about you, but that is something I CERTAINLY wouldn’t want everyone to see. You can see the video on the loo here ->
So just on board and help our sistas out.
