Grainger is running an ad citing sanitary products like cleaners and toilet paper with the tagline 'Janitorial products are the foundation of our fragile world.' Truth or exaggeration?
I think that they've hyperbolized the delivery (it IS an ad, after all), but I think that their basic point that sanitation is the key to a healthy, thriving society is actually well thought-out, and well-made.
Sanitation has changed the world. The places where you see some of the oldest diseases are places that haven't embraced clean drinking water sanitation disposal or even a place to stay clean. You can't take a leak in your drinking water obviously.
I wouldn't call it the "foundation" but when you have a newborn baby antibacterial is extremely important to have with you. :/
