It may seem like the fodder for jokes, but November 19th has been marked as World Toilet Day. The World Toilet Organization announced World Toilet Day in 2001. The day is designed to bring awareness to correct sterilization. Money invested in correct sanitation shows benefits in almost every social group. The issue is for more than just health.

The importance of World Toilet Day

World Toilet Day was officially started in 2001. Sanitation is something that 2.6 billion people within the world can’t get to. Sanitation being out of peoples’ lives kills people. 1.8 million each year are killed due to this. About 5,000 people a day die with infection in lesser-developed countries as a result of lack of sanitation. Most often, women and kids don’t have access to sanitation. They're affected by it the most. The majority are encouraged to discuss and donate so that correct sanitation can be put in place for those across the world with World Toilet Day. “The Big Squat” is organized in order to get people to realize that in third-world countries there is terrible sanitation.

How the economy is changed as a result of World Toilet Day being celebrated

The lack of sanitation is what World Toilet Day is supposed to be showing. A $9 return in economic impact is brought for every $1 invested into improving sanitation in disadvantaged areas. Natural Disasters typically harm sanitation. People stop caring about sanitation when their lives are at risk. In Haiti, the lack of correct sanitation is what is causing the widespread cholera outbreak.

World Toilet Day causing many concerns to be discussed

Just because World Toilet Day tries to bring attention to proper sanitation doesn't mean it is without controversy. ”Flush” or water toilets are used within the U.S. and are said to be the best although the “best” sanitation may actually be something else. The water usage of flush toilets is estimated at about 30 percent of all water usage. When using composting toilets and waterless toilets instead, disease is better kept under control and money and water are saved.
