1. Toilet-shaped house
Sim Jae-duck, a South Korean politician built this two-story house for the World Toilet Association. The group wants to bring attention to the fact that only about 40% of the world has access to working toilets. The home is located in Suwon, 30 miles south of Seoul and is named Haewoojae which means “a place to solve one’s worries”. The $1.1 million home is 4,520 sf and was built in 2007.
2. World Plumbing Day – March 11
Every single person on this planet is affected by the availability of clean drinking water and basic sanitation. Join us in celebrating WORLD PLUMBING DAY on March 11, 2011.
World Plumbing Day is dedicated to helping the general public better understand the vital role the plumbing industry plays in protecting public health and safety, the extent to which it helps limit mankind’s environmental footprint and other important work performed by contractors, inspectors, installers, engineers, and manufacturers that is often taken for granted.
WPC Chairman, Mr. Robert Burgon stated “Our hope is that on World Plumbing Day, the world will come to realize that plumbing is essential in protecting both the health of our people and the health of our planet. In developing countries, many people have yet to discover the real difference that plumbing can make. Where countries have developed plumbing systems, the role of our industry is often taken for granted.”
