Clorox Safe Water Project

Clorox Safe Water Project

In 2012, we launched the Clorox Safe Water Project to help provide safe drinking water to three communities in northern Peru. Partnering with PRISMA, a local nongovernmental organization, we installed public dispensers filled with a diluted solution of sodium hypochlorite, the primary ingredient in Clorox® bleach. Sodium hypochlorite kills more than 99 percent of the viruses and bacteria commonly found in untreated water for up to 48 hours. The dispensers, developed by Innovations for Poverty Action in Africa, are placed next to community water sources to encourage families to treat their water before they transport it home.

Encouraged by the success of the project, which currently serves 3,000 people, we plan to expand the program to reach 25,000 people over the next three years. That's the equivalent of providing 400,000 liters of clean water per day.

The Clorox Company’s Ingredients Inside Program has gone mobile. If you have a smartphone, you can get to ingredient information on our household and commercial disinfecting, cleaning and laundry products in the U.S. and Canada – wherever you may be.

We’re offering our smartphone app initially for iPhone® users, letting you scan a product UPC code for immediate access to that product's ingredient listing. In addition, a new mobile website (http://i.clx.com), which is available for all mobile platforms, gives easier, on-the-go access to the company’s Ingredients Inside program by offering content and functionality optimized for mobile device use.

The free application can be found in the iPhone App Store by typing in “Clorox ingredients.” The Ingredients Inside app will be available for other mobile devices soon.

Responding to Public Health Needs Every Day

People rely on The Clorox Company for their regular cleaning and disinfecting routines – whether it’s at home, in schools or in healthcare settings. Clorox disinfecting products provide peace of mind because they kill germs that make people sick, including cold and flu viruses, staph, E.coli, salmonella, and strep. In healthcare facilities, Clorox Healthcare products help stop the spread of healthcare-acquired infections.

During times of disaster or epidemics, we work with government and nongovernment organizations to help address critical needs. We donate Clorox® bleach to disinfect water and hard surfaces where germs can live for days. We also offer important educational information, sharing guidelines on proper disinfection and lists of products that are effective against germs.

Consistent with our values, we’re committed to doing what we can to respond to public health needs every day.
