Celebrated in over 19 countries, events are held to recognize the over 2 billion people worldwide that are without proper sanitation. The World Toilet Organization's mission is to "Improving sanitation conditions for people globally through powerful advocacy, inventive technology, education and building marketplace opportunities locally."
We all need to bring awareness to this situation as almost 40% of the world's population do not having proper sanitation. The lack of sanitation contributes to many of the world's health problems, and lack of clean drinking water. While we take these things for granted, many in the world do not have the facilities we do.
