For many, the idea of having a safe, sanitary toilet is not a concern. However, there are 4.2 billion people living without access to safely managed sanitation, and that is why MaintenX International is spreading the news of the United Nations World Toilet Day.

MaintenX is honoring World Toilet Day to help raise awareness that more than half the world's population is without access to safe sanitation.

It might not seem like a big deal to a lot of folks, but access to a sanitary toilet is a huge contributor to a community’s health and to overall environmental impact.

Each year, team members at MaintenX International work on thousands of toilets for their clients across the United States. From leaky plumbing to faulty valves, toilet issues may seem like major inconveniences for those experiencing them. However, simply having access to a safe, sanitary toilet puts those businesses ahead of more than half the global population. MaintenX is honoring the United Nations World Toilet Day in order to raise awareness for the 4.2 million people around the world without access to safe sanitation.

“It might not seem like a big deal to a lot of folks, but access to a sanitary toilet is a huge contributor to a community’s health and to overall environmental impact,” said Bill Schaphorst, VP of Business Development at MaintenX.

This year, World Toilet Day is focused on the sustainability of sanitary systems, particularly the impact of floods and droughts on critical sanitation infrastructure like toilets, septic tanks and water treatment plants. By thinking ahead about the system’s physical needs, the UN hopes to keep communities healthy and functioning for many years to come.

“When MaintenX technicians help install environmentally friendly or water saving toilets, they’re helping reduce the impact on critical water resources. When they help properly install pipes and drains, they’re helping reduce exposure to waste and toxins. In short, they’re helping keep their customers and their clients safe,” said Schaphorst.
