Will Glastonbury 2013 be a muddy one? The jury’s out, but after a year off and a headlining slot from the Stones, you can’t hide from the hype about the biggest festival in the world. Mud or no mud, Glastonbury is still a pretty filthy place to be, thanks to its rickety Portaloos and cesspit-style ‘long-drop’ toilets. Not going this year?

Because beyond the designer wellies and glamorous celebrities, Glastonbury is rather like a particularly grueling endurance test. Watch at home and console yourself with the fact you definitely won’t have to face scenes like this… Continue reading

It’s easy to take for granted the relative cleanliness of your surroundings when it’s all you know, and it’s safe to say that most of the people reading this will no doubt have grown up in societies equipped with the resources necessary to keep their local communities — streets, rivers, parks, etc. — free of litter and pollution, or at least clean enough not to have their health threatened. Sadly it’s not that easy the world over, and for the communities seen below such basic and essential resources aren’t (or weren’t at the time of the photos being taken) available. Continue reading

If the prospect of cleaning your home or office brings you out in a dread-induced rash, just imagine for a second the cold sweats experienced by the unlucky human beings tasked with de-griming the following filthy living spaces. The levels of squalor range from horrendously disorganised through to dangerously dirty, the reasons varied and often unknown, but to be honest its irrelevant as we’ve compiled these breathtaking photos simply as a morale boosting exercise for the tidyphobics among us.

3. They all make me depressed and strangely exhilarated. I’m sure you’ll experience a similarly thrilling level of discomfort.
Hold on tight. Continue reading
Enormous man-made structures won’t just clean themselves, you know. Thank goodness then for the brave few who seem more than happy to scale such beasts in an effort to de-grime them; apparently fearless as they swing next to, hang from, and climb up the world’s most impressively large landmarks with bucket and sponge in hand and sturdy stomach.
