There is a Bollywood movie, titled Toilet – Ek prem Katha, that movie talks about the problem that not just India but many more countries are encountering still. The movie talks about the importance of hygiene and sanitation and shows the lack of knowledge in people about it as well as how they are not getting access to it. There are many places where people do not use proper hygienic Toilets for sanitation, either they are going out of the homes or using the public Toilet that can lead to serious and various problems.
So, to raise awareness we celebrate World Toilet Day on the 19th of November. It commemorates toilets and brings up the attention of the 4.2 billion people residing without entrance to safely organized sanitation. It is making the effort to undertake the widespread sanitation dilemma and attain Sustainable Development.
World Toilet Day was organized by the World Toilet Organization in 2001, was created by Jack Sim, a contributor from Singapore. He henceforth announced 19 November as World Toilet Day. The name “World Toilet Day” and not “World Sanitation Day” was selected for the comfort of world messaging, even though latrines are only the main phase of sanitation procedures.
This year’s theme notes the significance of “Sustainable sanitation and climate change”.
Climate fluctuation is hastening. Storm, drought, and surging sea levels are frightening sanitation systems. From latrines to septic tanks to therapy plants. Floodwater can pollute wells utilized for drinking water or flooding might harm toilets and dissipate human waste into societies and food productions, resulting in fatal and persistent infections.
All must retain sustainable sanitation, along with neat water and handwashing facilities, to enable maintain and protect our health security and avoid the spread of toxic contagious viruses like cholera, typhoid, and COVID-19. Latrines can assist us to battle environmental change, wastewater, and sludge from toilets contains useful water, nutrients, and fuel. Sustainable sanitation procedures create efficient usage of manure to safely increase farming and lessen and capture emissions for greener energy.
Sustainable sanitation starts up with a latrine that effectively invades human manure in a careful, available, and dignified atmosphere. The waste furthermore is stocked in a tank, which can be cleared later by a collection service, or transferred away by pipework. The following phase is therapy and safe discarding. Careful reuse of human manure enables the conservation of water, reduces and captures nursery gas emissions for fuel creation, and can deliver farming with a credible source of water and nourishment.
The best you can do to celebrate this day by sharing this information on social media because ultimately the objective of this day is to raise awareness and that can only be done by sharing the important knowledge you have and make people aware that it is not something that can be ignored, it is truly important to have the proper access to the hygiene and sanitation. It’s the right of everyone.
