Summary
On World Toilet, play your part in ensuring no one is left behind without sanitation.

World Toilet Day, celebrated on 19th November every year, is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis and help achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, which promises sanitation for all by 2030.

Established by the World Toilet Organization in 2001, World Toilet Day was made an official UN day in 2013. UN-Water leads a taskforce of international agencies to campaign around a common theme.

  • Did you know? An early British toilet manufacturer produced a device called ‘Waterloo’ in honour of the Battle of Waterloo. The word was subsequently abbreviated to ‘loo’.
