Three United Nations stamps were created for World Toilet Day 2021. Each stamp depicts one of the most important ways toilets, water and hygiene add value to our lives.
Safely managed toilets and water services dispose of our waste, helping prevent food crops from being contaminated and ensuring sustainable use of water in agriculture.
Good hygiene practices are possible only with reliable and affordable water and sanitation services, which help to protect people from preventable diseases such as COVID-19 and cholera.
Toilets at home, school and workplaces particularly benefit women and girls, helping them play their full role in society, especially during menstruation and pregnancy.
