Happy World Toilet Day

November 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

Hey, today’s World Toilet Day.  Do you know that 2.6 billion people in the world don’t have access to a toilet?  Their waste flows into waterways, contaminating drinking water, and contributing to disease.  I’ve lived in countries where people lacked proper sanitation, and as a result, feel very grateful for what I have.  Here at our farmhouse, we have three bathrooms for two people.  Three toilets feels positively luxurious, especially when you consider all of the people who lack access to just one toilet.
