In honor of National Clean Hands Week, Sept. 20 through 26, Georgia-Pacific Professional is making a poster available online to promote good hand hygiene practices among elementary school children. The poster and accompanying hand washing and drying handout features Germ-Jitsu Mo, Georgia-Pacific Professional’s VP of Hygiene and Chairman of Cool, who teaches students how to help kick germs out of the classroom. The poster is available at www.GPPRO.com/HealthSmart.
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports hand washing as one of the most preventive measures against the spread of disease, and Georgia-Pacific Professional is committed to doing its part to help educate the public about proper hand washing practices. The offering of the Mo Germ-Jitsu Poster and hand washing and drying handout is one way Georgia-Pacific Professional is taking action.
 
“Proper hand washing and drying with a paper towel are the foundations of successful infection control practices,” says Craig Yardley, VP and General Manager - towel category, Georgia-Pacific Professional. “As a leading provider of hand hygiene products, we feel it is part of our responsibility to promote good hand washing and drying practices, and we are proud to be taking this initiative at such a critical time in disease prevention.”
