Potty Girl and the portable restroom industry supports a world that has reliable, sanitary restroom trailers and portapotties that are free from barriers to proper sanitation. November 19th is World Toilet Day that is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners with a focus on wastewater.
"If there’s one thing that unites humanity, it’s the call of nature. But depending on where we live, it’s not always possible to dispose of our bodily waste safely and responsibly." - UN Water
People around the world have either non-existent or ineffective sanitation systems. Human waste gets out, and diseases spread, that negatively impacts health and child survival.
- Around 60% of the global population – 4.5 billion people – either have no toilet at home or one that doesn’t safely manage excreta.1
- Only 39% of the global population (2.9 billion people) use a safely-managed sanitation service. 2
- Combined with safe water and good hygiene, improved sanitation could prevent around 842,000 deaths each year. 3
Porta potties have many health and environmental benefits. The Portable Sanitation Association International claims that 45 billion gallons of fresh water are saved annually through the use of portable restrooms. Portable toilets also help with preventing the spread of internal parasites, such as Giardia. Having a portapotty or restroom trailer is an economical and feasible solution for sanitation issues.
