The goal of World Toilet Day is to raise awareness of the roughly 2.4 billion people in the world who don’t have access to a toilet. This year, World Toilet Day falls on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015, and will focus on the link between sanitation and nutrition, drawing the world’s attention to the importance of toilets and improved health.
The United Nations wants to bring attention to the cause by encouraging people to take action and help promote the idea that more needs to be done. This is where House Call Company wanted to step in. “We believe we can improve lives by improving homes,” said Raymond Walsh, general manager of House Call Company. “Given the plumbing services we provide homeowners and the worldwide concern for sanitation, we felt like we needed to do something to help spread awareness.”
As such, the experts are running a promotion to help local homeowners reduce water waste due to leaky toilets. If residents notice that their toilet is running, House Call Company will come out and replace the flapper for free.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of residential indoor water consumption. And roughly 10% of all American homes have water leaks that waste 90+ gallons of water per day!
“Whether it’s helping to provide access to clean water or reducing water waste here locally, we want to empower Hampton Roads residents to conserve their water and give to those in need,” added Walsh.
