Broadcaster and author Sally Magnusson has twinned a toilet in Glasgow Cathedral with a loo in a remote village in central Africa for World Water Day.
In her book, Life of Pee: The Story of How Urine Got Everywhere, Magnusson unveils many little-known facts and uses of urine, an ‘unsung hero’. However, for the 2.6 billion people in the world without a decent loo it’s a different story.
Inadequate sanitation is one of the world’s biggest killers, and water-related diseases keep children out of school and parents at home and out of work.
Magnusson said: “Having learnt so much about urine and human waste disposal from my research, I wanted to do something for those who don’t have the benefits of good sanitation and to encourage others to do the same.”
