An Italian charity is using the quick response barcodes for education in public restrooms.
Sieropositivo, a charity in Italy that works to promote HIV awareness, is using QR codes printed on toilet paper in public restrooms to help to spread the word about the disease and increase the knowledge that women have about the way that it is spread.
Women who visit those lavatories can use their smartphones to scan the barcode.
The toilet paper with the QR codes is being used in women’s public washrooms in trendy clubs located in Milan and Rome. The women who actually visit those bathrooms will notice that the toilet paper rolls have a question printed upon them, as well. It asks:
“When you use a public restroom do you fear diseases? What about when you have sex?”
