When I started the dry toilet journey I was only aware of one incinerating toilet brand. Separett was synonymous with ‘the creme de la creme of dry toilets’ – incinerating or otherwise. After visiting Mikael and his team I think my loyalty to Separett is rock solid, but it turns out there are other incinerating toilet companies out there. I have a Separett Villa 9000 to test out, but I think the designs need to change a lot for large scale urban use – read on.
Separett asked me to write a piece for them, but didn’t think this first draft was appropriate for what they intended. I like it, so here it is. (The second draft was even better 🙂 )
Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF)
UnSchool’s Creative Change Makers session
I’m participating in the DIF, in the unschool session number 3 . The DIF is an online platform that aims to inspire action towards a circular economy, with a focus on Cities in Transition (etc). This is a result of a previous session I gave to the Unschool crowd in Cape Town, presentation at this post. #thinkdif
