Poor sanitation in developing countries is major issue that often doesn't get enough awareness. That's why it's so important that companies such as Who Gives A Crap offer recycled toilet paper and other recycled paper goods to tackle one of the most daunting problems that humanity faces: clean and safe sanitation.
Sanitation issues are on the rise and, thankfully, gaining awareness and becoming a major talking point due to thought-provoking television series like Inside Bill’s Brain, a Netflix documentary featuring both Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates.
Clean and safe sanitation is one of the most significant needs of humanity; without it, an individual is susceptible to waterborne diseases.
The unsafe sanitation crisis has caused nearly 2.3 billion people worldwide to forgo the use of a toilet – that is equal to roughly half of the global population. The unsafe sanitation epidemic is responsible for 289,000 children deaths under the age of five or 800 children per day or one child every two minutes, mostly caused by diarrheal diseases.
These dire conditions caused by hazardous sanitation can be improved significantly with proper sanitation and hygiene. Unfortunately, they are not being improved quickly enough without the help of others.
There are ways that the public can help improve sanitation for developing countries. The company Who Gives A Crap donates 50% of its profits to help build toilets and better sanitation in developing countries. As of today, Who Gives A Crap has donated 1.9 million dollars to help build toilets for those in need, thanks to the support of their customers.
