Getting down to it for World Toilet Day

The World Toilet Organisation... it has been very much in the minds of the NewsWireless staff these last two days, as we were struck by the Norovirus.


 Probably, that's more information than you wanted. But The Boss said something about wanting hygiene publicity to be more widespread.

Well, today is World Toilet Day. Truly: the blurb insists "Get involved!" and offers what it calls the three we's:

World Toilet Organization (WTO) stands up for the 3 "WE (s)" in the theme "We Deserve Better".

  • WE: Toilets deserve better social status. WTO has been striving to elevate the status of toilets to make them status symbols and objects of desire. WTO speaks on behalf of toilets "WE DESERVE BETTER SOCIAL STATUS".
  • WE: The second WE are the toilet cleaners. WTO aims to professionalize the sanitation and restroom industry and to upgrade the skill sets of the restoom cleaners. WTO speaks on behalf of the toilet cleaners "WE DESERVE BETTER PAY, RESPECT AND PROSPECTS".
  • WE: WTO speaks on behalf of 2.5 billion toilet-less people, "WE DESERVE BETTER PLACES TO DEFECATE -- PROPER TOILETS".
  • We decided you can google for norovirus all by yourself.
