Why Sanitation Is More Than Important

The topic of sanitation is more than important. In fact, it’s the very foundation on which all other topics related to health and hygiene are built. But not everyone understands just how important a healthy sanitation system is for our bodies, our homes, and even our planet. So today, we’re going to explore what exactly makes a good sanitation system and why you should get a hygiene service.

Avoiding Diseases

You don’t have to be a doctor or scientist to understand that poor sanitation can lead to disease. You may not know what exactly those diseases are, but you do know that they’re bad and they make you sick. What you might not know is how they get into your body!

Poor sanitation can spread through water, food and air. Waterborne diseases include cholera, typhoid fever and dysentery; foodborne illnesses include campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis, and airborne diseases include tuberculosis (TB).

Life-Saving Water

Water is essential for survival. Without it, you can’t live. It’s also important for hygiene and sanitation: without access to clean water, people have a much higher risk of getting diseases and infections.

Improving water sources can improve people’s health by reducing diarrhea-related deaths by 60%—and that’s why sanitation is so important too!

Better Hygiene, Better Health

Hygiene is important for good health. It helps prevent disease, and those who practice better hygiene are less likely to get sick. A person with good hygiene will be healthier overall than someone who doesn’t pay attention to their personal cleanliness.

This means that sanitation is key in preventing disease and promoting better health, but it isn’t something that can be practiced alone. Sanitation services are important because they help make sure everyone has access to the tools they need for proper hygiene at home or work.

A hygiene service can provide these tools by providing access to clean water sources and toilets/latrines that won’t spread disease throughout society. They also ensure the safe disposal of waste materials, so they don’t pollute groundwater supplies or cause any contamination hazards during collection operations (like sewage backups).

Healthy and Strong Children

A child’s health is of the utmost importance. Sanitation can help you keep your children healthy and strong, which will, in turn, help them grow up to be strong adults.

A strong body is a healthy body. This is why it’s important for us to maintain good hygiene habits, especially when it comes to hand washing. By keeping our hands clean, we are protecting ourselves from harmful diseases like diarrhea, which can cause both dehydration and fever in young children.


We all want to live in a world where people can have access to clean water and sanitation. The UN estimates that 1.8 billion people still lack proper sanitation and 3.2 billion people lack even basic drinking water, which is why it’s so important that we start talking about this issue. In order for us all to live healthier lives, we need everyone involved: governments, international organizations like the World Bank (which has pledged $1 trillion in loans) and NGOs like our partners at WaterAid America, who are on the ground helping communities build toilets that last for generations! 

But we also need each other—because if no one takes action now, then nothing will change. So let’s get started by signing up today!
