After the novel initiative by the hospitality sector, numerous associations and organisations in Kathmandu and Pokhara have announced their restrooms free to the public
With the motive to promote cleanliness and hygiene in the country, various sustainable and eco-friendly campaigns have taken shape. Supporting governmental efforts towards cleanliness campaigns, several sectors of the hospitality industry and other organisations from community level have also decided to provide immense support.
All this started from businesses involved in the hospitality sector of Kathmandu Metropolitan City after Mayor Balen Shah was appointed. Many restaurants and cafes have given free lavatory access as a part of this campaign. After these progressive efforts of Kathmandu Metropolitan City, other organisations such as banks, restaurants, cafes, hotels and Pokhara Metropolitan City have followed suit to announce their support to avail lavatory access to all.
In a recent press meet, Nabil bank has declared free access of their toilets in 18 branches in collaboration with Kathmandu Metropolitan. A reassuring statement from the CEO of Nabil Bank, Anil Shah, “Public can easily access restrooms in 18 branches of Nabil bank within Kathmandu valley without asking for legit permission with any authorities.”
This optimistic effort, highly lauded by all governmental and public sectors will impact tourism in a largely positive way.
Director at Jyoti Group of Companies and Chairman of Syakar Trading, Saurabh Jyoti also cited, “Following this good initiative, 107 toilets at various Honda showrooms all over Nepal, are now open to the public.”
