Yes. Seriously. And to help us all appreciate our toilets a little more, NOW and The Glue Society have created Louis the Loo.

Did you know that where toilets don’t exist, thousands die? In fact, around 700,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation – that’s almost 2,000 children a day.

So say thank you to your toilet today. And find out more about World Toilet Day at

And a huge thank you to NOW for letting us use their studio space to put the finishing touches to this year’s Circle magazine.
