World Plumbing Day

Whether 'world plumbing day' means we all call the plumbers out or do a bit of DIY, I wasn't too sure.

Having done a bit of research, however, it seems that the day is in fact an international event, initiated by the world plumbing council every year, in order to recognise the important role plumbing plays in societal health and amenity. Countries around the world spend the day drawing attention to the importance of good plumbing and sanitation, and how that links to human and environmental health. So it seems to be a bit more of a bigger picture than giving your local plumber a high five for all their work, and instead thinking about how you can raise awareness of the need for good sanitation around the world, even if that is simply being thankful you live in a country where that is largely the case! It's a good opportunity to think if there is anything you can do to help, maybe a bit of fundraising, or just raising awareness by telling others about the need for good plumbing and sanitation and the ways this can be done. Have a look at the official world plumbing day website here for more information and for some ideas of activities you can do to celebrate the day.
