It’s World Toilet Day!

Standard

Marcus, a researcher in Portugal invited all his friends around the world working on this topic to submit a mini-podcast about their work with the humble toilet and crucial sanitation systems.

The topics are: sanitation and health, ceramic materials for water filtration, sanitation and climate change, pro-environmental behavior adaptation, mindsets, identity, and the plight of sanitation workers! I talked about defecatory justice, and since we recorded it on Halloween, I was also dressed up as a toilet!

Sarah and her advisor Dr. Sharon Moran of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry stand in a room. It’s Sharon’s toilet costume that Sarah is wearing. 🙂

Check out the POOP project to see what you can do with your contribution to the People’s Own Organic Power. Also Bill is right on time with his waterless toilet. The proof will be in adoption in the Global South and adaptation in the Global North. Let’s create defecatory justice!
