Created by

World Toilet Organization
on November 19th 2001


Adopted by

United Nations General Assembly
in 2012

Practical, hygienic toilets, that we like to take for granted, are not available to everybody in the world.
Even today there are places in this world that struggle with obstacles that prevent them from practical solutions for waste disposal or even adequate plumbing at all.

The UN joined the cause as part of  Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6): “to ensure availability and sustainable management of sanitation and water for all by 2030.”

Having safe and sanitary toilets improves living standards and health for humans and environment alike.
That’s is why the reason that World Toilet Day is no laughing matter.

“When the shit hits the fan,
you really have to ask yourself
why you weren’t sitting on the toilet.” 

― Anthony T.Hincks
