Make a splash on World Toilet Day
November 16, 2010
World Toilet Day is Nov. 20. Really.
WaterAid, a nonprofit organization, plans to encourage children to flush bad habits and promote conservation at a World Toilet Day event at the King County Library System Service Center in Issaquah.
The free celebration runs from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The event at the service center, 960 Newport Way N.W., has dual messages. World Toilet Day seeks to remind residents of the 2.6 billion people worldwide without access to adequate toilets. WaterAid works to help poor communities plan, build and manage safe water supplies and low-cost toilets. The program also aims to offer hygiene tips to children through activities, entertainment and games.
Participants can meet children’s comedian Charlie Williams — creator of the Super Toilet cartoon — write on a bathroom stall, play commode karaoke and check out a display of creative toilet seat art, depicting facts of hygiene and sanitation issues around the world.
