Flush for Good: Raising the Standard of World Sanitation


Did you ever think a flush could be so powerful that it’s felt in other countries? This year, American Standard is launching a campaign to raise awareness of how plumbers protect the health of the world. Deploying the same engineering know-how that led to the breakthrough Champion flushing system, the research and development team at American Standard created a new sanitary toilet pan to help solve a health crisis where plumbing infrastructure doesn’t exist.

A small plastic sanitary toilet pan designed to be connected to a simple latrine pit provides a tight seal to keep out flies and prevent dangerous cross-contamination. These sanitary toilet pans are designed to be affordable, easy to maintain and simple to use. See the sanitary toilet pan in action here.

For every Champion toilet sold in 2013, American Standard is donating a sanitary toilet pan to a developing country. Why champion a cause that is half a world away? The bathroom and kitchen symbolize the most fundamental aspects of the human condition. Our bodies bring nourishment in and expel waste out. When we look at the bathroom, we look at the core of who we are, at our deepest roots – it’s the one thing all humans share.

It’s also the story of why plumbers are so important. Be a champion to the world in 2013, and help us provide solutions to a global health crisis.

Yes, a toilet can be that powerful. Learn more at
