World Toilet Day

World Toilet Day

At Cinderella, we are concerned about the global lack of good sanitation. On the annual World Toilet Day, which for the uninitiated may be considered as an attempt at humor, but which is actually very serious, we at Cinderella are keen to make solutions available.

An important sustainability goal initiated by the United Nations which we globally have agreed to reach by 2030, is to provide satisfactory "sanitary hygiene and toilet conditions" for all. The majority of people who lack proper sanitation and healthy toilet solutions are forced to go out in the open air, reports the World Health Organization (WHO), which actually means digging a hole in the ground.

We must also invest in proper sanitation
The lack of proper toilet facilities is more prevalent in rural areas than in urban areas and the sad thing is that while we are investing billions to treat diseases that occur due to the lack of a safe and suitable place to go to the bathroom, we could better invest in solutions for these areas by building tailored toilet solutions. As always, it is the sick, the elderly and the smallest who suffer most, but there are more, especially women and girls, who have been attacked and taken advantage of while most vulnerable, looking for a suitable place to go to the bathroom.

New toilet solutions do not necessarily have to use water. Cinderella's incineration technology is therefore an important contribution to health and growth opportunities in third world countries and provides an alternative to using water desperately needed for other purposes.

Not only third world countries are affected
As many of the world's population travel more and natural sights are becoming overcrowded by tourists, the need for proper sanitary conditions in sensitive areas without access to water and sewage is crucial. Many mountain vistas around the world are unprepared for the active, mountain climbing tourism that has increased significantly over the past years. This, too, creates a serious health problem.

We mark The World Toilet Day, November 19th, in our calendar. Maybe you can, too?
