Better Living Challenge


Exhibitors: Flushed Away

Aug 27, 2014

Due to the scarcity of land and infrastructure in low-income communities, there is a need for sanitation that not only takes up as little space as possible, but serves a dual purpose as well.


Giepie Smit’s Lifewise Eco-Loo is a washbasin mounted on top of a standard flush toilet. The used water automatically runs from the washbasin and empties directly into the toilet – saving water and space. No water is wasted in either the wash or flush processes.

The Lovely Loo by Francois De Flamingh is a low-cost, self-contained, private composting toilet. Harsh chemicals or water are not used as the system is designed to produce compost.
