Sorry, couldnt pass this up. I don’t know what is more rediculous the fact that there is a World Toilet Organization trying to rid the world of flushing toilets or that there is a World Toilet Day with its very own World Toilet Summit.
AS the world celebrates World Toilet Day today, sanitation experts have called for the end of the flushing dunny to save water and provide fertilizer for crops.
Leading health advocates have called for the use of “dry” toilets which separate urine from faeces and remove the need to flush.
Mr Sims said a culture where people flushed their loos but disregarded the thousands of litres of wasted drinking water each year was one of sanitation’s greatest challenges.
“This ‘flush and forget’ attitude creates a new problem which we have to revisit,” he said.
New toilet tax proposed
There have already been calls by Australian experts to reduce the amount of water wasted through toilet flushing with a proposed new toilet tax. “Some people may go as far as not flushing their toilet as often, as the less sewage you produce the less the rate you pay,” Professor Young said.
