Georgina Turner commented on Jessica Scholl's blog post Business Opportunity in the Toilet: Partnering to Flush it Out
"I quite agree Jessica. PSI (Population Services International) faced the same issue. How do you get people to wash their hands or clean their water when they can just not bother for free? Although not a private company they used a commercial…"
