Pilipinas Shell Partners with Domex For Clean Toilets

Unilever and Shell improve toilet sanitation for the comfort 
of Holy Week travelers

The dirtiest part of every home is the toilet, it is where all the germs and illness-causing bacteria resides.  Every time you flush with an open lid, bacteria spray into the air around your toilet. And some of these germs could pass along symptoms of diarrhea or vomiting. To prevent bacteria from spreading, we should use a disinfectant like Domex which kills 99.9% of the germs on your toilet bowl rim and lids, and always keep the lid closed The study found that this reduced the spread of bacteria by 10 times. Make sure to wash your hands after using the toilet.

The summer season heralds the start of an annual tradition among thousands of Filipino families – traveling to the provinces in observance of Holy Week. In preparation for this, Unilever Philippines, through leading toilet cleaner brand Domex, has partnered with Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation to provide motorists and travelers heading north and south of Luzon access to clean, hygienic toilets for their comfort during the yearly exodus.

Leading the clean-up is Unilever Philippines Marketing Director for Home Care Jay Go and Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Vice President for Retail Anthony Lawrence Yam. North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Shell stations will experience Domex clean-ups beginning April 10.

“This coming Holy Week, when you gas up at Shell and take a break, you can expect smarter products and quality service at our stations,” says Yam.

“Everyone deserves a good toilet break during the long Holy Week journeys. With our cleanup drive, we at Unilever and our friends at Shell would like to assure the public of sanitized comfort rooms as they rest and recharge for their trip,” says Go.

Traveling during peak seasons introduces heightened risks of acquiring diseases, and some of the possible sources are poorly sanitized public restrooms that travelers may use along the way. Gas stations along major roads become the necessary stop-over points for commuters and private motorists, resulting in the crowded and busy use of comfort rooms and other facilities.

The cleanup drive is part of the 1 Million Clean Toilets program, an advocacy of Unilever through Domex to empower and inspire Filipinos to properly clean their own toilets with the right product in an effort to reduce incidences of disease that are related to lack of proper toilet sanitation. The program is set to culminate in November with the World Toilet Day celebrations.

With this, Unilever Philippines is providing six (6) months worth of Domex products for proper toilet sanitation of selected Shell gas stations. In support of the 1 Million Clean Toilets advocacy, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation submits their corporate pledge for clean toilets and continue to execute proper toilet sanitation throughout the year.

Everyone is encouraged to join the 1 Million Clean Toilets campaign by pledging for clean toilets.
