A new exhibition opened by The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine showcases the importance of global sanitation. Roto-Rooter Atlanta commends this exhibition and hopes that it inspires many to focus on the importance of adequate plumbing and sewage resources.

Although a majority of people across the world use toilets on a daily basis, few are willing to discuss such private matters and how waste resources play a role in terms of global sanitation. However, according to a recent article from The New York Daily News, an exhibition created by The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) strives to shine a light on efforts “to help fight diseases causing diarrhea, which kill more children than malaria, HIV/AIDS and measles combined.” Roto-Rooter Atlanta commends the work of LSHTM for its “taboo-breaking” exhibition and hopes that the resource will serve as inspiration to others to learn more about proper hygiene and sanitation.

In a recent press statement, Roto-Rooter Atlanta comments, “Although people rarely like to discuss their private matters, Roto-Rooter Atlanta knows just how prevalent these issues can be. This company works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to resolve plumbing emergencies that may include septic tank, toilet and sewer line issues—all factors that play into the greater practice of proper hygiene and public sanitation.”

According to the article, the exhibition takes place throughout October and November, when plumbing and sanitation issues are highlighted worldwide. It states, “The month-long exhibition, which includes a selection of toilet designs, scientific tools for the study of feces and a small golden poo sculpture seated on a red cushion, is timed to coincide with Global Handwashing Day on October 15 and World Toilet Day on November 19. The school expects at least 4,000 people will see the show.”

In addition, Val Curtis, director of the LSHTM's Hygiene Centre, explains in the article that “proper hand washing with soap could prevent 600,000 deaths a year from diseases like diarrhea and respiratory infections.” Inspired by these messages Roto-Rooter Atlanta concludes in its press statement, “When looking at disease prevention and control, washing one’s hands is the first step. As a plumbing company, Roto-Rooter Atlanta strives to make sure that our customers have adequate fixtures, functional water heaters, working toilets and properly maintained sewer lines and septic tanks. All these plumbing elements play a major role in the overall sanitation of the world and should be respected by communities across the world. Talking about these subjects only helps people have a greater understand of the importance of proper plumbing and sanitation.”
