Today is World Toilet Day and it’s more serious than it sounds. It’s actually a UN recognised event created to promote education on global sanitation, don’t you know. In honour of this day, three post-graduate students from London’s Central Saint Martin’s are battling it out to design the toilet of the future, in an initiative by Dyno-Rod.
The winning toilet will account for global health concerns while being sustainable and eco-friendly. The ‘Wellbeing Toilet’ (above) promotes correct ergonomic body position, in an effort to reduce the risk of intestinal cancer and haemorrhoids. The ‘Modular Construction Toilet’ (below) runs on grey water collected from showers and sinks, while the ‘Zero Waste Toilet’ (bottom) is a waterless system that converts waste into grey water, fertiliser and biogas. A prototype of the winning toilet will be unveiled, on the day, at a special event to be held at Central Saint Martin’s.
