World Toilet Day 2022: Let’s flush away all the ill habits!
On the occasion of World Toilet Day 2022, an awareness and social campaign program were organised with the participation of people from all walks of life by Harpoon Liquid Toilet Cleaner brand of Quazi Enterprises Limited.
An awareness rally with the slogan 'Flush Kore Dur Kori' was brought out from the Press Club at 8 AM and ended at the Motsho Bhaban. The rally was inaugurated by renowned actress, Ekushey Padak and National Film Award winner Dilara Zaman, former captain of Bangladesh national cricket team and BCB selector, Habibul Bashar; popular singer, Mehreen Mahmud, Senior Brand Manager, Quazi Enterprises Ltd., Md Ishtiaque Nahid, Head of HR Md Abu Sayeed, and other senior officials of the organisation.
"There is a wrong mentality amongst us about toilets that the responsibility of cleaning toilets falls only on women. We don't talk about these things often. I thank Quazi Enterprises Ltd, and its brand Harpoon for this initiative" said Ekushey Padak and National Film Award-winning actress, Dilara Zaman. Habibul Bashar expressed the hope that "This educative campaign organized by Harpoon Toilet Cleaner, would have some impact on our lives." Mehreen Mahmud stated, "It is a big challenge to be able to use clean and hygienic toilets at present. It is undoubtedly a good and educative initiative".
The participants talked about the bad habits and mindsets we have about toilets e.g., entering the toilet with dirty shoes, leaving unwanted things in the commode, spitting on the wall, writing illicit words, or relying only on women when it comes to cleaning toilets. These perceptions are noticeable at all levels of society. As a result, access to hygienic toilets has become the biggest challenge. However, with the united efforts of all, it is possible to stop such wrong mindsets from society.
Thus, on the occasion of World Toilet Day, Harpoon Liquid Toilet Cleaner took the initiative to end such misplaced perceptions regarding the use of toilets.
