Everybody poohs…

Posted: October 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

It can be hard to find a toilet… where to go when there isn’t one?

Everybody poohs – for most of you reading this blog: you have access, like me, to a toilet at home. To a waste management system that the United Nations considers adequate sanitation.*

There are over 2.6 million people around the world who don’t such access. And about 1.6 million children are dying each it because of it.

Why?

Join me on everybodypoohs.com, as once a week I’ll explore such questions through stories about where people’s pooh is going.

* Adequate sanitation is defined as: having access to improved sanitation facilities, which includes flush or pour-flush to piped-sewer system; septic tank or pit latrine; ventilated improved pit latrine (VIP); latrine with slab; and composting toilet. Unimproved sanitation facilities are flush or pour-flush to elsewhere; latrine without slab or open-pit; bucket; hanging toilet or hanging latrine; no facilities or bush or field.
