11th March 2020


World plumbing day is an international event, initiated by the World Plumbing Council starting in 2010, to help us recognise the important strides being made in the world of plumbing and the impact it has on society.

Every year on the 11th March, people come together to hold seminars and activities to reflect on the role of plumbing within everyday life and health, as well was discuss how plumbing can advance and be made better across the globe. So we at Metro Rod Reading thought we would share with you some information on the day and how you can celebrate it.

How to celebrate World Plumbing Day?

Here in the UK we often will take our clean running water and plumbing systems for granted, but with the help from the World Plumbing Council, the 11th March marks a day when we look at the critical link between plumbing and good health. For over 2 billion people across the world this is something they are missing. With this day being recognised more awareness is being created to help the communities who do not have access to good plumbing and flushing toilets, in attempts to increase their standards of living and general health. 

There are many organisations that help bring the features of good plumbing to the deprived communities to improve the situation of hundreds of people who are at risk from health complications due to the lack of good sanitation and plumbing. For example the Toilet Twinning charity organisation, works to bring “health and happiness to people living in some of the poorest areas”. By donating you are able to twin your toilet to one being built in a poor community helping people be safe from disease.
