Can Washroom Soap Can Make You Sick?

Can Washroom Soap Can Make You Sick? infographic

Can Washroom Soap Can Make You Sick? from GOJO Industries brings to light a growing health risk in public restrooms everywhere.  Restaurants, offices, stores, hotels and more.  Those bulk soap dispensers (on the wall or built into the counter) that janitors refill by just pouring in more soap can easily become infected, and the bacteria can survive and grow inside the soap dispenser!  Yuck!

It’s hard to believe, but you could actually walk away with more bacteria on your hands after washing with soap from a refillable bulk soap dispenser in a public restroom. The contamination could even include fecal matter!

How could this be? Check out the infographic below to find out how this happens, discover smart alternatives, and see how you can help protect your family’s health by being a voice for change.

Designed by InfoNewt, this design walks the reader through a clear sequence of information.  It conveys a simple story with easy to understand information and clear sources for credibility.

  • What’s the problem? 
  • How does it happen?
  • What’s the specific risk?
  • What’s the solution to the problem?
  • What can the reader do?

This is a persuasive infographic design that ends with a very specific call-to-action.  Sign the e-petition online to support the cause or forward the infographic to someone that can make a difference.

Your Dirty Habits Make Me Sick

Your Dirty Habits Make Me Sick infographic

We all have our habits, but some of these dirty habits may come to a shock to you. Your Dirty Habits Make Me Sick infographic from ionSwipes educates the reader on how their morning routines and work day can be full of nasty habits that will get them sick.

The isometric illustrations of the places we live and work are great, and draw in the readers.  By seeing these common places we all interact with, it makes the information and data more personal and relevant to the audience.  

However, none of the data is visualized.  Big fonts are not data visualizations, and relies on the audience to read all of the text contained in each callout.  Visualizations of the data would have communicated the information faster, attracted the reader’s attention and put it into context for the readers.
