It’s World Toilet Day – So Squat for a Good Cause

We kid you not, it’s World Toilet Day to remind us that not everybody s***t’s in luxury and many have no access to toilets with 80 percent of human waste left out in the open.  YUK.

The UN and World Toilet Day organizers note that around 2.6 billion people worldwide have no access to adequate sanitation with over a billion continuing to practice open defecation.  And no that number doesn’t include drunks and inebriatants who drop trough in a public place or your last boyfriend that pees in public to amuse you.

World Toilet Day, which has been celebrated every November 19 since 2001 and is marked by the world stopping precisely at noon for 60 seconds and squatting.  If you are already in the bathroom doing your business you are covered.  However, if you are out and about just stop and squat – the world will be better for it.
