Clean Hands save Lives:  Wash a Germ, Make a bubble! This October 15th the world celebrates the “Global Hand Washing Day”, an initiative to motivate and mobilize people around the world to wash their hands with soap to prevent mortal diseases. The campaign, which was initiated to reduce childhood mortality rates related with respiratory diseases and diarrheal, celebrates this year its 5th anniversary with the same simple goal in mind, to raise awareness about how doing this simple action can reduce the rate mortality from these diseases by half.

The leading American soap brand Dr.Bronner’s wants to commemorate this day with its Organic Shikakai Hand Soap RRP 7.25.
