There is one thing that all 7 billion of us have in common. No matter where we live, what we look like or what we believe in, when nature calls, we all go and do that same thing.
But that’s where the similarity ends. On one end of the equation we’re seeing a shift in how people view their bathrooms – from a functional place to carry out their business to a calming, relaxing and even entertaining experience.
At the other end of the equation are the 40% of us that don’t have access to a proper toilet. This is a big deal, since poor sanitation contributes to the death of 700,000 children each year. Which means that by the time you’ve finished reading this paragraph, another child died because they didn’t have access to something we take for granted.
