As cases of Covid-19 continue to grow, organizations around the world are working to find solutions that will keep public areas clean. Cadena, one of the non-profit organizations we work with in South Africa, decided to help their community by providing a solution that will clean minibus taxis. Their community raised donations so that they could distribute thousands of Aquatabs to keep everyone healthy.
By dissolving one Aquatab in 100mL of water, a sanitizer solution is created. This solution is able to sanitize surfaces for a lower cost while also reducing the amount of plastic waste created by regular bottles.
Taxi drivers were given Aquatabs to produce their own sanitizer, flyers providing information about staying healthy during the pandemic, and cloth masks. Working with a local church and community center, they have been able to sanitize hundreds of taxis, protecting even more people from the pandemic.
