Black History Month with 2 Pee's in a Pot

 



What is Black History Month?

Black History month is an annual celebration of achievements made by African Americans, and a time of recognizing their central role in the U.S History. 

Who started Black History Month? 

Great Question, Carter G. Woodson better known as "Father of Black History" developed Black History Month. Although his parents were enslaved, that didn't stop Woodson from becoming an Author, Historian , and the Second African American to earn a Ph.D at Harvard University. 

Why is February Black History Month?

Woodson chose the Second week of February to coincide with the birthday of Frederick Douglas, a famed abolitionist who escaped slavery. He also wanted it to coincide with Abraham Lincoln since he was the one whom formally abolished slavery.  

Why is Black History Month so important? 

Woodson believed it was important for our younger generations to know about their heritage and indefinitely understand it as well. He felt that " Those whom have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history. " 

How to celebrate Black History Month?

Educate yourself more on not just what Black History Month was about, but also try to get more familiar with people whom played a major role during that time. Ask about truths and if possible question, question question. Try to understand Black History from a Black perspective.

Down below is a list of  iconic people that played an important role in our Black History: 

  • Martin Luther King : (Born: January 15, 1968) was a Baptist Minister and a social rights activist. Martin Luther King Jr. was a leader of the American civil rights movement. 

  • Rosa Parks (Born: February 4, 1913) was a an American activist in the civil rights movement. She was bets known for her pivotal role in the Montgomery bus boycott . The congress called her " the mother of freedom movement" .                                                                                                                                                                                                          

  • George Washington Carver (Born: January 1, 1864) was an American agricultural scientist and an inventor who promoted alternative crops to cotton and methods to prevent soil depletion. He was the most prominent scientist of the early 20th century.

  • Carter G Woodson (Born: December 19, 1875 )better known as "Father of Black History"  was an American Historian, Author, Journalist, and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. 

  • Frederick Douglas (Born: February 20, 1895) was an American Social reformer, abolitionist, Orator, Writer , and statesman. He was known for escaping slavery in Maryland. Frederick Douglas was a national leader for the abolitionists movement in Massachusetts and New York; that also lead him to become famous for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings. 
The list can definitely go on, but Knowledge is Power! Its great to educate yourself on Black History Month so that you can relate to conversations that may be amongst you this month. You can have more of an understanding of the African American culture, how they overcame hardships and persevered them, and how TODAY they recognize those whom served and played a major role during these times.

Spring Cleaning Projects with 2 Pee's


 


Spring cleaning is underway, and what a better way to start it early then with 2 Pee's on your side.

Maybe your reconstructing your bathroom and you need a place to pee or poo we got the lou for you!

Spring cleaning typically consists of having to move things around, removing unwanted junk as well as possible completely remodeling. In that instance we would love to ensure that your hiney feels like its in its own comfort. 

Here are some fun facts about spring cleaning:

  •  In the Asian Culture the Chinese believed that if you cleaned your house before the new year begins it promotes a more positive outlook for the upcoming year, and will help wipe away any negativity from the year before. 
  • Spring cleaning is very popular more in the western countries due to the celebration of the Pass-over, which is a Jewish tradition. "A long time ago, people of Jewish decent would clean their entire houses to get rid of every little piece of bread that contained the cooking ingredient yeast. This strange tradition comes from when Jews were slaves and could only eat bread without yeast. Many Jewish traditions have become very similar to many other Christian traditions, causing a widespread cause to clean one’s home in the spring. "
  • The average woman cleans for 12,896 hours in her lifetime, And men clean an average of 6,448 hours
  • The majority of household cleaning products ae packed with loads of potentially harmful chemicals that can cause a slew of different problems to your health. The most concerning products are those that contain cancer-causing carcinogens, such as certain laundry detergents that contain formaldehyde, and jewelry cleaners, which often carry the toxic chemical perchloroethylene. Fortunately, there are plenty of natural, harm-free ways to keep your home clean and shiny. Natural ingredients like lemon, cooking oil, vinegar, and baking soda will all get the job done, while keeping your health in check.
Make sure to keep 2 Pee's  in mind when you are doing your Spring cleaning. All of our potties come with a 10 step servicing, 2 ply toilet paper, best ventilation on the market, 2 hooks , a mirror and a hand sanitizing dispenser. Call 210-951-5151 or checkout our website 2 Pees satisfied!!!

Odor Control in a Potty

No one likes to walk in a bathroom that smells like last night's dinner . Gross!! 
Especially when its a Porta Potty , the first facial reaction or reaction in general is YUCK! 
The great thing is that there are so many ways that the odor can be controlled.

Here with 2 Pee's in a Pot we take every precautionary measure to make sure that all our potties are cleaned with our 10 step service that we provide with every delivery. 
One of the main things that we use to make sure that the odor is controlled is a product called J-Disks, which are product enhancers. They come in different smells as well. They were created to be biodegradable and to help provide a long lasting smell for not only the potties but toilets as well. 

Steps to follow to keep that Odor down would be:

1) Make sure that every unit (Port-a-potty) has a cleaning tablet.
2)Make sure to stay up on the stock. Potties are SUPPOSE to be cleaned frequently especially because typically more then one person is using it. 
3)Air out your potties: Yes the first incline is to shut it and close it out until the funk from your rump has cleared, but let me let you in on a secret. When you crop dust someone you don't put it in a jar and savor the moment, you let it rip and move along. That applies to this as well!!! 
4)Make sure to focus on the touch points with your potties. Everyone and their mother are going to be using the porta potty. So what we mean by touch points is focusing on whats being touched the most: the door, the toilet, toilet paper holder, paper towel holder, sanitizing station. All of these are extremely important to focus on especially since we are still dealing with this pandemic COVID. It ensures our safety as a company and your safety as our future customer. 

When your in need of a Stall you know who to call. 1 service a week within A 28 day rental cycle! We use a 10 step cleaning process! Not to mention we got not 1 ply, but 2 Ply toilet paper, a mirror, a double hook as well as a hand sanitizing station. Call us or checkout our website to Pee for yourself! (210)-441-2121

Sanitation

Did you know???

2.6 billion People do not have access to modern day toilets. 980 million children were out of a toilet at their home according to WHO and UNICEF. That’s nearly 40% of the world’s population that we are talking about, lacking the proper resources, and access to proper toilets.  These conditions leave people but most importantly Children vulnerable to a range of health risks.

If the trend continues, there will still be 2.4 billion people with the same basic sanitation that they have been dealing with for so many years.  Children of course will be the ones paying the price dying, missing school, disease, and poverty.

 

What are the proper ways of sanitation? 

The proper way to sanitize would be Using proper toilets and hand washing - preferably with soap - prevents the transfer of bacteria, viruses and parasites found in human excreta which otherwise contaminate water resources, soil and food. Contamination is the major issue for developing countries. 

Improving the sanitation facilities and promoting hygiene in the children’s education will benefit them, especially their health. Having separate bathroom for boys and girls, as well as having hand washing stations with soap equipped in each bathroom would help prevent contamination. For girls if there aren’t proper facilities they are withdrawn from school which takes away from their education.

Properly disposing of the waste could save a lot of lives and decrease sickness. It starts from a young age so, In order to see a change we need to be a part of the change. Focusing on sanitation is fundamental to human beings.

 

Together we can make a change. So make sure to use proper sanitation. Flush the toilet, Wash your hands, and pass along that message! Sanitation matters!

How dirty is the Loo?

Happy Fri-YAY everybody! 

Studies from 2018 show that a single person would yield about 320 lbs of waste a year and out of a poll of 2,500 people it’s been revealed that going to the toilet accounts for the biggest chunk of time spent resulting into the “average time” of 1 hour and 42 minutes a week! That’s 92 days over a lifetime equaling 2208 hours! WOW

Now that we know how popular the loo is to the average Joe, let’s talk about sanitation. Did you know that the average toilet seat is covered in about 295 bacterial germs per square inch! Don’t forget the lever to flush your slush; a flushing lever can be home to as much as 83 bacterial germs.

You should also beware that when you flush, the toilet creates “Toilet Plume” also known as bacterial mist this is made of microscopic particles of pee and poop and whatever else is in the bowl prior to the flushing. This Toilet Plume can linger for up to 6 hours coating surfaces and regular bathroom toiletries including your toothbrush! (May be a good time to get you a toothbrush cover!)

So next time you’re in the Loo; doing the doo make sure to flush with the seat down! This is the easiest way to help avoid the spread of bacteria coating the surfaces of your restroom. You could hold your breath when you flush but its best to just ensure the toilet bowl remains clean and that you wash your hands immediately after using the bathroom.

Surprisingly enough, the pot is not the dirtiest spot in your home; can you guess what it is? 

The kitchen, home of the dish sponge!

How to stay healthy through the Holiday season

We made it to the ending of 2020! The most wonderful time of the year is here! Small Holiday bashes will begin maybe for your place of business or even your own home event. This year has brought so much awareness in regards to not only staying safe but sanitary as well in case you’re in need, we have some tips that’ll help keep you and your loved ones healthy this holiday season!

1.)  Rest! 7-8 hours of good quality sleep on a regular basis can help regulate blood pressure and according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this can reduce the chances of sleep related conditions such s apnea and promote better overall heart health.

2.)  Make arrangements to be distant. If you’re inviting different households to your holiday bash or business gathering, separate the tables by household so no one is sitting with others that are from a different home base, you can also set up hand sanitizer to promote cleanliness.

3.)  Have prepared plates to ensure no one is double dipping. Sometimes family can be too comfortable with each other, during this time it’s best to prevent a potluck situation. If you do maybe designate a server.  If you’re the hostest with the mostest and you’ll serve your guest, ensure that the hot food stays hot and the cold food stays cold to avoid any food-borne illnesses.

4.)  Exercise. Swap sit ups and jumping jacks instead of sitting on the couch, this will help maintain the holiday munchies weight that we all can’t seem to avoid.

We hope you have a safe and Sanitary Holiday season! Remember to wash your hands and wear a mask regularly to help slow and prevent the spread.

Calling every-potty! Portable restroom do’s and don’ts

 The port-a-potty on site is typically the number one spot for all the number two jobs, and we all know that when we gotta go, we gotta go!  Have you ever waited entirely too long to use the port-a-potty at a family get together, tailgate, back yard BBQ or concert only to open the doors to a dirty portable restroom experience? We’ve got some tips to help keep you and your guests / workers hinny shiny!

1.)    Try leaving the potty in better shape than you found it. When you walk into a clean potty, it’s more of a surprise than you would anticipate; entering into a clean potty helps you feel more sanitary and hopefully your guests will follow suit. If you’re the host, maybe post a sign as to how you would like your potty treated, ex: Please, Only Toilet Paper in the tank or Make sure to sanitize before leaving. Maybe even a: Thank you for helping us keep our potty from looking spotty.

2.)    No Cutting! We all hate the line, some of us end up doing the potty dance but the line is sometimes unavoidable, if you’re the host in this situation ensure you have enough potties to cover the amount of guests at your event. It’s not polite to skip the line all guests should be mind full of each other and the potties at use.

3.)    Get your business done in a timely manner; this will also help with the long line. The restroom is a common area to linger on the phone texting, reading a book or even just getting away from the crowd for a bit, but this isn’t the case for a portable restroom. Be courteous to others by getting in keeping it clean and ready for the next user.

Here at 2 Pees in a Pot we offer a 10 step servicing that addresses every aspect inside and outside the potty including the front door. Following the steps above will most definitely help maintain the integrity of your potty in between services.

Does plastic effect our environment?

 

Plastics are a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable to create different shapes. Because plastic is not a natural resource it can take several years to decompose.

The decomposition of plastic is said to take anywhere from 10 - 1,000 years to decompose and because only 23% of plastic is recycled in the United States it leaves a lot of room for plastic pollution. Plastic pollution causes harm to humans, animals and plants through toxic pollutants and the damage to our environment are long-lasting. This affects organisms in the food chain from tiny species like plankton to whales. Over 1 million marine animals (including mammals, fish, sharks, turtles and birds are killed each year due to plastic debris found in the ocean.

Currently there are 100 million tons of plastic in oceans around the world as well as micro plastics, including streams, rivers, lakes and oceans making it easier to find in the water we drink and the fish we eat. Not disposing the plastic like reusable plastic bags and other debris properly can also create blockages to our storm drains and culverts and impeding the flow of water and worsening bank erosion..
