We also continue to partner with the Global Handwashing Partnership to help build healthy, sustainable handwashing habits among children. Colgate was also one of the founding members of the Global Handwashing Day campaign with other organizations such as the World Bank and UNICEF. Global Handwashing Day is celebrated on October 15th and drives awareness of the vital importance of hand washing with soap and its impacts on health. This global program includes advertising, media campaigns, web resources, social media campaigns, community events and educational programs across the globe. Water Conservation Awareness With the Colgate brand in more homes than any other in the world, we have a unique opportunity to promote water conservation awareness to all our global consumers. With our Save Water public awareness campaign, we estimate that our consumers have contributed to the avoidance of approximately 206 billion gallons of water and 10.8 million metric tons of CO2 emissions, since the campaign’s launch in 2016. The campaign shows how a small change like turning off the tap when you brush your teeth can make a big difference. And since water and wastewater treatment systems are energy-intensive, every drop of water saved means less energy used. 2021 SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL IMPACT REPORT PAGE 49
