Celebrating World Toilet Day globally

It’s World Toilet Day, a day created to help bring awareness to the fact that not everyone has access to a toilet. The goal is to spread awareness about the millions of people around the world who don’t have sanitation and safe waste removal access. The United Nations supports the initiative of the World Toilet Organization which aims to bring toilets to everyone around the world by 2030, based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. According to the World Toilet Organization, 4.2 billion people globally live without safely-managed sanitation, and a further 673 million practice open defecation.

In honour of World Toilet Day, here’s a look at some of the toilets around the world.
