Ecoflo has recently helped with the provision and installation of a new toilet building and composting toilet in a truck stop on the way up to Toowoomba.
The toilet building has been made predominantly out of FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic) building materials that won’t rust, corrode and is resistant to fire and termites.
Installed in the toilet building was one of our CM 14 units that require very little maintenance and will only need to be emptied between 2-4 times per year (depending on usage).
It’s expected that many truckies will stop at this rest stop to refresh before making the long descent along the new highway into Brisbane or to peel off towards the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast.
Take a look below to see some of the photos of our toilet building installation project.
The Nature-Loo Classic 850 – the best Nature-Loo yet
We’ve had considerable success with the remarkably eco-friendly Nature Loo Classic series throughout Australia in the past 20 years. Not being satisfied with resting on his laurels, Manager Peter Vollert, who has an engineering degree, has been conducting research & development on a new and improved Nature-Loo 850 for the past 2 years. There have been many prototypes, lots of testing and an extensive round of improvements to make our best Nature-Loo yet.
We have added robust wheels to make the chambers easier to move and a new and improved compost mixer within the chamber which makes it easier to rotate & requires minimum maintenance.
This new design means you won’t need to open the chamber to turn or rotate your compost. We’ve also increased the capacity & efficiency of the chambers.
Clients in colder climates have told us that a heating pad would be a great addition, so we’ve added that as an optional extra when a Classic 850 is purchased.
Most of us, when we think about the ocean, palm trees and sandy beaches, we think of an idyllic holiday spot. Swimming into crystal clear water and diving under the waves can bring a relaxing sense of calm and quietness to the mind.
Whilst the inhabitants of the tiny island of Rambutyo in Papua New Guinea certainly look like they live in an island paradise, the fact they didn’t have a working toilet on the island meant their bathrooms were simply rooms built over the shore. This meant all the inhabitants went to the toilet directly into the ocean which was having health implications and causing obvious issues with the sanitation of the water they lived so closely to. Women and children had to walk a quite a distance to go to the toilet and privacy was also an issue, so you can imagine the relief when a solution was found.
Working with Friends of Rambutso, Clivus Multrum have helped the villages of Rambutyo to install their first community composting toilets. This means that men, women and children will have a healthier standard of sanitation and also a usable compost after a few months of use.
Challenge: Incurring no electricity, sewage or water bills seems like an unattainable dream, but that was the brief to Strine Design for Krawarree House.
A World Heritage Area recognised for both its natural values and cultural values.
When the Ikurangi Eco Retreat were looking for a composting toilet system for their eco-friendly cabins they wanted something that looked and felt as close to a ‘normal’ toilet as possible. This would allow their guests to have a great experience at the resort without freaking out a little about the bathroom situation!
