Episode Summary

MEET MR. TOILET introduces us to Jack Sim, Singaporean businessman-turned-sanitation crusader. Worldwide, 2.6 billion people lack access to safe sanitation, resulting in disease, contaminated water sources, and 1.5 million child deaths per year. Because human waste is a taboo subject, little progress has been made. But as "Mr. Toilet," Sim has opened the dialogue wide open -- through humor, plain speaking, and a humanitarian business model. To get the poor to adopt simple toilets, he says, "treat them like customers." His vision has helped place the sanitation crisis on the global stage.moreless
