I’m a Loo Lover.
A Dunny Detective. Amenities Aficionado. Conveniences Chaser AND Top Toilet Tragic.
Hell, with Scenic Loo blog series; a couple of Dunny Calendars and a book called ‘Aussie Loos With Views!’ under my belt, I reckon I’m the Poster Girl for Scenic Australian Public Toilets!
But I had NO IDEA about World Toilet Day!
Finding Amazing Amenities and Designer Dunnies was easy – when I put my ‘Dunny Goggles’ on – so I snapped the Wonderful WCs and COOL Conveniences wherever I found them all around OZ!
Until I just couldn’t imagine a world without toilets.
Sadly, however, 2.4 billion of the world’s 7 billion people don’t have to imagine a world without proper toilets. And nearly 1 billion don’t have ANY toilet. That compromises their health, hygiene and basic human rights.
Yes, that’s nearly ONE-THIRD of the world’s population.
So while you enjoy my TOP TEN Aussie Scenic Loos retrospective in honour of World Toilet Day on November 19th, imagine Australia without those awesome toilets.
Imagine life without proper toilets.
Imagine life with NO toilet.
HERE they are: Australia’s TOP TEN Aussie Loos with Views! (click the title links of each loo for more information)
They’re all REALLY worth holding on for, aren’t they? Have I included – or missed – YOUR favourite?
Yes, I’m a Loo Lover. And I’ve even got my dunny goggles on all the time! But if ABC radio hadn’t emailed me asking for a World Toilet Day interview on November 19th, I wouldn’t have known anything about it.
I wouldn’t have shown off my TOP TEN Australian Scenic Toilets.
And I certainly wouldn’t have been part of World Toilet Day 2015!
I don’t yet know how I can help increase the proportion of people with access to a clean toilet, but raising awareness is the first step.
How can I get involved?
The official World Toilet Day website suggests:
- Be a Sharer: Clean, show and share our toilets on World Toilet Day
- Be an Artist: Use art to show the world what it’s like to have access to a toilet
- Be a Thinker: Think about the 1 in 3 people without proper loo access, strike the thinker pose, take a selfie and share your thoughts on social media
Spread the word – use hashtags: #wecantwait and #WorldToiletDay
