Stay Safe and Sanitise Your Hands for Free All Over Paris

A partnership between the municipality of Paris and JCDecaux is bringing free hand sanitiser dispensers to bus stations and public bathrooms around the city as its lockdown comes to an end.

As cities around the world begin to recover and reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an emergence of innovative design concepts aimed at keeping public spaces clean and safe. Paris, in particular, has partnered with advertising company JCDecaux to install free hand sanitiser dispensers at 1,500 bus stations and 435 public toilets around the city.

Created by French designer Patrick Jouin, these dispensers have a capacity of 5 litres, which allows for up to 3,300 uses a day and adds up to almost 6.5 million hand sanitiser applications across the city per week.

The dispensers will be serviced regularly by a team from JCDecaux, who sees their project as a contribution to the safety and wellbeing of Parisians in the post-pandemic world. Other cities in France and around the world have also expressed interest to implement this initiative, according to JCDecaux.
