World Toilet Day - 19 November

Today is World Toilet Day which is closely tied to Millenium Development Goals number 7 that aims to halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

Around the world, 1.1 billion people defecate in the open, contaminating their environments and water sources and spreading diseases like diarrhoea, which kills 2,000 children under 5 every day. 

I think is the time to do something. 

Me and an italian colleague (Mauro Lajo of www, are working to do that. We are developing two project to promote the safe sanitation and spreading the use of toilets. Contact us if you want be part of the team.

Let' go to build a treatment wetlands, let' go to build a reedbed, let's go to build a constructed wetlands... let's go to do somethings!
