Take a look at this video titled ‘How To Use The Toilet In Southeast Asia (and other places where water is a commodity)’.
I noticed that it was World Toilet Day on Twitter, so I decided to play around with some footage I had from the Philippines.
Did you know that around 1 out of every 3 people goes without a toilet? It might sound like a strange fact. However, it is a serious problem.
It is because of this that on November 19, organizations like WaterAid and UnWater try to change this situation by aiming to provide a clean, safe, and private toilet to everyone, everywhere by 2030.
Toilets save lives because human waste spreads killer diseases. World Toilet Day is therefore all about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.
It is important to remember that a toilet is not just a toilet. It is a life-saver, a dignity-protector, and an opportunity-maker. Whoever you are, wherever you are, sanitation is your human right.
It is for these reasons that portable toilet hire companies are working in partnership with charities all over the world to provide portable toilets in environments where toilets are in short supply.
Yes, this video might only be a funny Snapchat story, but the reality is that not everyone has the luxury of flushing their toilet paper down the toilet. Things, therefore, need to change.
