By sharing our knowledge and expertise, Ecolab products and procedures make a positive difference in people’s lives every day

Food safety is critical to the well-being of society. The World Health Organization estimates that around the globe, about 2.2 million people die from food and waterborne disease each year. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that contaminated equipment or environments and poor personal hygiene contribute to nearly half of the foodborne illness in the U.S. This is where we excel — leading the way in reducing contamination so safe food can be enjoyed by all.

The World’s A Dirty Place. The PeePoo Bag Helps Clean It Up.

Many developing countries are without even basic sanitation. But the PeePoo bag is changing that.

The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 894 million people are without potable water. That’s water for basic needs like drinking, cooking and — going potty.

It’s hard to believe, but the average human produces somewhere between 66 and 132 lbs of poop each year. Wow! And that’s dwarfed only by the amount of urine we produce — about 132 gallons.
