World Plumbing Day

March 11, every year, everywhere. The World Plumbing Council invites the world to celebrate the importance of plumbing to world health. A YouTube Video, poster contest, the opportunities to celebrate just go on and on. And green building technology and their poor child *greywater* owes much to the dedication of the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). 

The Rainbow Water Coalition's tribute to World Plumbing Day? A painted ceramic of a *plumber* purchased this past year in Gubbio, Italy, famous for the funivia, the palio, and the *Gubbio layer* - a sedimentary layer enriched in iridium exposed by a roadcut outside of town that marks the boundary between the Cretaceous and Tertiary geological periods roughly 65 million years ago.

So, go hug a plumber. And back off from the *crack* jokes for just one day.

  6. We should really start respecting our plumbers. In the future where people are living in space stations, plumbing would definitely be a #1 priority job, maybe even a required skill set for everyone. It’s basically all pipes in there!

  10. I like the idea of World Plumbing Day – yes, hug a plumber please instead of trying to knock the price down or grumbling about the work to be done! Last year I was invited along to one of my daughter’s schools to give a short talk on plumbing and safe drinking water issues.

  11. I lived without plumbing for a few months in Guatemala. Digging holes changes your view entirely. If you are ever feeling underprivileged, I would recommend visiting a third-world country. http://www.ablesewerage.com/services.html
