Happy #RandomActsOfKindnessDay | Welcome back and thanks for following our posts. It’s been a busy few weeks working on the third children’s book on our toilets and poo series for kids, as well as progressing with the patents we have to help people go to the loo more easily. As and when we are able to share more on this you will be the first to know! Meanwhile, let’s look back at the week’s best articles and stories on the world of poo and no. 2s… This week we go deeper on the question of wash or wipe, the environmental impact and the why’s and wherefores!
On that happy note, let’s put all these articles behind us. We look forward to publishing the next edition of ‘The Daily Poo!’ same time next week. Random act of kindness? Don’t leave anyone an empty toilet roll – replace it! 🙂
Tirdy Works, as mentioned in the forthcoming book, ‘Animals Poo & We Do Too’ hits the screen! If this shit hits the screen, it’s way better than the shit hitting the fans 🙂 Well how could this not be funny… clip below from TruTV
There’s a fundamental difference about the way people go to the loo, primarily (as a generalisation) in the west we sit, and in the east they squat.
In itself the correct posture is quite a matter for debate, after all humanity was designed to squat. Then way back in the days of the Sumerians, sitting suddenly became a new option, adopted by the Romans and carried through to the present day. But, where was the research and science to back up the supposition that sitting was a good option, when squatting had always been the natural position by design. Today, a vast amount of the population (who are fortunate, or not, to have such facilities) are still squatting. Meanwhile sitting continues to be adopted farther afield, and toilet manufacturers keep inventing more devices to enhance the experience. That’s what we’re highlighting in ‘The Daily Poo!’ today… Toilet tech and a few other articles on what’s happening behind those closed doors.
Next week we’ll look at charities and organisations that aim to aid poorer countries as the World Health Organisation reports, 74% of the world’s population (5.5 billion people) used at least a basic sanitation service. 2.0 billion people still do not have basic sanitation facilities such as toilets or latrines. So heading back to our first article that’s what Bill Gates and others are on a mission to change. Another amazing man is also on the same mission, Jack Sim aka Mr. Toilet who founded World Toilet Day which takes place on November 19th this year. He’s also just released his first movie documentary, which we hope will be shown in the UK anytime soon…. Mr Toilet: The World’s #2 Man
While awaiting further news on the publication of my ‘poo books’ for kids and all ages + as my agent is away promoting the Andrew Ridgeley book signing, ‘Wham! George & Me’ I’ve been scrolling through the usual sources to find some of the best articles from this past week and others that have resurfaced.
This week’s selection includes health matters, caring for your toilet and more toilet paper and wash or wipe Q&A’s, oh and Halloween of course… enjoy! More poo news next week from ‘The Daily Poo!’…the blog on the bog.
