Global Handwashing Day

October 15 is Global Handwashing Day, a day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding the importance of handwashing with soap and water as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.

We have all known for most of our lives that washing our hands before eating and after using the bathroom was the simple foundation of good hygiene, but never in our recent history has this simple action been so important as it is now during the seemingly never-ending pandemic.

This year's theme is, "Our Future is at Hand - Let's Move Forward Together,"

It is interesting to note that back in March 2019 when we all first became exposed to COVID and how it can harm us, we saw a huge spike in consumption of hand hygiene products across the country and the world which continued to grow until about July, and then tapered off as users tired of constant hand washing.

"Global Handwashing Day is an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap at critical times."
