Yesterday was World Toilet Day

I swear that it’s a coincidence that my post yesterday (about a website that lets you find and rank toilets) coincides with World Toilet Day.

Humor aside, about 40% of the world’s population does not have access to toilets. We often think about the people in Third World countries who are going hungry, but we don’t often think about the effects of their lack of access to toilet facilities. This is something I will try to think about every time I go to the restroom.

The website also contains some other facts (which you may not want to read before eating) and some interesting activities (other than awareness raising) to do on World Toilet Day (though I guess we will have to wait till next year.)
