“In the toilet” Happy World Toilet Day!

November 19, 2013

I have been very quiet lately due to work commitments but I thought it was worth emerging from my blog slumber on World Toilet Day (that’s today – happy world toilet day to you!).

2.5 billion people live without access to a proper toilet. Basic sanitation can drastically decrease the risk of deadly diseases and in developing countries this can have an enormous effect on under five mortality rates. Domestos and Unicef have teamed up to improve people’s quality of life by providing hygiene and sanitation, and access to clean drinking water; basic nutrition and by enhancing self-esteem.

The video is fantastic and it reminds me of conversations I have with my 4 year old nephew.

  1. Great Mike, after I had a laugh I thought about the reasons for it. How lucky we are here not to have to give sanitation a second thought. It is good to be reminded of that and to give something to help other people without this little luxury.
