DHAKA: WaterSHED Holdings Singapore Ltd. has recently launched the first ever portable hand washing solution of the world “HappyTap” in Bangladesh. While the entire world is talking about the importance of hand washing and cleanliness to stay protected from COVID-19 / Corona Virus and reduce the spread of it, the portability of HappyTap can make it an effective tool to ensure people’s hygiene and keep them protected whether they are at home or on the move.
HappyTap Bangladesh Ltd. is rather a newer venture for WaterSHED Holdings Singapore Ltd. after inventing a number of solutions to improve everyday living;in 2013, they launched first of its kind, portable handwashing sink, a solution for hygiene behavior change and convenience focusing Bangladeshi consumers. With the support to facilitate further research and development from TRANSFORM, a social startup incubator run by Unilever PLC, DFID and Ernst&Young, HappyTap started its soft operation from January, 2018. After spending two years for conducting several researches, HappyTap got to understand consumers’ behavior, practices and put all the findings in the product design and started its functional business operation from February 2020.
The CEO of HappyTap Bangladesh Ltd. Mr. Geoffrey Revell said, “Our vision has always been very simple, ‘Everyone washes their hands with soap consistently.’ Unfortunately, hand washing has long been ignored. But we always believed that hand washing with soap is the best defense against infectious diseases and global pandemics. Thus, for more than a decade HappyTap has been at the forefront of behavior change in hygiene. We were the first company to bring an attractive and convenient portable hand washing solution to market. Two years of intense research and design work resulted in a product that is customized specifically for the Bangladeshi consumer. We’re confident, it can help to nudge consistent and habitual hand washing, while creating a delightful experience in every household, school, and healthcare facility in Bangladesh.”
