UNICEF Ireland and Domestos believe that everybody has the right to access clean and safe sanitation facilities.
UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 states that everyone must have access to sanitation by 2030. Our partnership supports global efforts to ensure that this goal is met.
One in three people in the world are in danger of sickness and disease because they don’t have access to proper sanitation. Children are dying from preventable illnesses, like diarrhea.
Together we’re fighting to give more people access to proper sanitation.
Domestos and UNICEF work in India to help the millions of families who don’t have a clean and safe toilet. As part of Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan, Domestos aimed to help 25 million people gain improved access to a toilet by 2020.
Together we have now exceeded that target and provided improved sanitation to more than 28 million people.
When you buy a specially-marked bottle of Domestos, you are supporting UNICEF’s work to help every child have access to a cleaner, safer toilet. For each bottle of Domestos bought, 5% is donated to UNICEF’s sanitation improvement programmes in India.
Funds raised through purchases of Domestos bottles have been used to strengthen and sustain UNICEF’s support to the Government of India on the Swachh Bharat Mission; a nation-wide programme to eliminate open defecation in India.
