World Toilet Day

It’s World Toilet Day! Around 2.5 BILLION people around the world don’t have access to a safe toilet, which is why diarrhea and other waterborne diseases are the leading cause of death for children under five.

Today we are celebrating World Toilet Day by increasing our efforts to expand access to dignified toilets through outreach events in the communities where we work. 

We believe that sanitation is a basic human right, and we look forward to promoting this vision in solidarity with the 2.5 billion people around the world who do not have access to a toilet. We commit to follow our vision through the ups and downs, not only for the larger cause but also for our individual customers on a day-to-day basis.

Lovanie Charles, an EkoLakay customer in Cap-Haitien, told us: “We want more toilets, more protection. If we have more toilets in this neighborhood, we’ll have more environmental protection against disease.”

So this November, while you’re reflecting on all that makes you grateful, don’t forget to include your toilet on the list! And we continue to be so grateful for your support as we work to make safe, dignified sanitation accessible for everyone.
