Axis Cleaning and Support Services is committing to give every new toilet it maintains this year a thorough cleanse - and a toilet twin. The company is to ‘twin’ every toilet in every new contract it wins this year with a latrine overseas – through the charity campaign Toilet Twinning.
Its support will sponsor the building of household toilets in some of the poorest countries in the world, as well as helping to fund clean water and hygiene education.
“People are at the heart of our business, so we are delighted to have committed to twin every toilet we will be contracted to clean from the beginning of 2018 to support the Toilet Twinning cause and help improve the lives of others around the globe,” said Simon Giles, group finance director and COO at Axis Cleaning and Support Services.
Toilet Twinning CEO, Lorraine Kingsley, said: “It’s shocking to think that 2.3 billion people worldwide still don’t have access to a safe, clean toilet while here in the UK we tend to take our toilets for granted. It’s wonderful that Axis has chosen to acknowledge the importance and value of the toilets it cleans by twinning them. In doing this, it is enabling others overseas to have facilities that will protect them from disease and help them take a big first step out of poverty.”
