The World Toilet Day campaign is put together by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and the World Toilet Organization (WTO). The organizers say, "Observed annually on 19 November, World Toilet Day aims to break the taboo around toilets and hygiene, and draw attention to the existing global sanitation challenge. Sanitation is a fundamental human right. World Toilet Day was created to raise global awareness of the daily struggle for proper dignified sanitation that a staggering 2.5 billion people continue to face."

"Can you imagine not having a toilet?," asked Saskia Castelein, Advocacy and Communication Officer at WSSCC.

This is actually a good idea for a campaign, because if you have ever travelled in a developing country, especially in rural areas, don't expect to run into the Tidy Bowl Man or Mr. Clean when you find a rudimentary latrine.

We suspect this means P& J actually do give a shit.
