The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to mark "World Toilet Day." The day will be celebrated November 19.
"The amusement and laughter likely to follow the designation of 19 November as 'World Toilet Day' would all be worthwhile if people’s attention was drawn to the fact that 2.5 billion people lacked proper sanitation and 1.1 billion were forced to defecate in the open, the General Assembly heard today," a U.N. press release reads.
It has been US toilet day ever since Nov 7 2008.
