Every year, November 19th marks an event called World Toilet Day. No, it’s not a chance to buy leftover loos for a song. Rather, the event recognizes that there are some 4.5 billion people across the globe who do not have access to a toilet in their home. This is more than just an inconvenience – millions suffer each year from diseases spread back lack of proper sewage treatment. By one World Health Organization estimate, 2,200 children under the age of five die every day from diarrheal diseases. For more information, visit WorldToiletDay.info.
