Dan from Toilography got the chance to chat to Jack Sim – global sanitation crusader and founder of the World Toilet Organization & the United Nations-recognized World Toilet Day!
He was in town with director Lily Zepeda for the premiere of the film, Mr Toilet: The World’s #2 Man at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, which details his dedication to the loo:
“To a stranger, he’s a guy obsessed with toilets, but to those who know him, he’s “Mr. Toilet,” a crusader in global sanitation. Born in the Singapore slums, Jack Sim knows firsthand the agonies of not having a proper loo. Now, he’s dedicating his life to a crisis no one dares talk about: Shit. Using humor as his main weapon, he plunges into his biggest challenge yet when he is asked to secure 6 million toilets for the “Clean India” initiative. But with few resources and no help from the government, his epic project and reputation are in jeopardy.”
Also make sure you catch the end of the chat to hear Jack’s hilarious poop joke! Thanks so much Jack and Lily for your time and wishing you the best of success with the film.

A super cool restroom at Japanese restaurant Posher which I saw in Montreal. They put a lot of effort and detail into this one, it was a real treat to the senses after a great sushi dinner.
The women’s room was pink with a naked man drawn on the door and the men’s room was blue with a naked woman.
