What is World Toilet Day?

World Toilet Day is a day to bring attention and inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis—a topic often neglected and shrouded in taboos. Today, 2.4 billion people are struggling to stay well, keep their children alive and work their way to a better future—all for the want of a toilet.

At Poo~Pourri, World Toilet Day is a day that’s close to our butts and our hearts. That’s because our job is to challenge taboos and help the world stink less. We believe that everyone should have access to a nice, safe place to go. So we have partnered with the World Toilet Organization to help them build “Rainbow Toilets” for school kids who don’t currently have access to safe and sanitary plumbing... and YOU can help us!

How can I help?
