Matt Damon continues his global crusade for toilets

As a follow-up to his “toilet strike” last month, actor Matt Damon narrates a new water.org video promoting sanitation and clean water that was released on  World Water Day.

 “Quick, what invention saved the most lives in human history? The answer is the can, the john, the porcelain throne, the bog, the foreign office, the Thomas crapper. That’s right, the toilet,” says Damon. “Whatever you choose to call it, the toilet not only provides a tranquil escape from nagging bosses, spouses and children, it’s also a fast and sanitary way to dispose of waste separate from the water we drink and bathe in.”

The spot ends with a plea to donate to Water.org, the charity co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White. Despite contradictory evidence, the water.org site continues to state that “only $25 brings one person clean water for life“.
