To whom it concerns.

This is a link from one of our customers, having installed a composting toilet system on a boat in Berlin, Germany: www.toilettwinning.org/

Share your toilet with someone else by donating another toilet ("twinning"). You will receive a certificate showing a photo from your donated toilet.

Toilets unite!
Good luck,

Wolfgang

  • I am a shit philosopher, thinking about how we think about sanitation. I think our main paradigms in WASH may be wrong.

This is a scheme run by the British NGOs Tearfund and CORD.

I could have mentioned this more than a year ago, I didn't even think it might be of interest here..

Also, sorry to burst any bubbles, the picture is just of a generic toilet not 'yours' in particular. They give you longitude and latitude references so it is possible to find your toilet on google earth, though.
I don't work for anyone, I am a philosopher interested to think about how we think about WASH and sanitation. All thoughts are mine alone, I am responsible for any errors.

Previously trained and worked as a Soil Scientist and worked on projects composting sewage sludge.

Dear Joe,

Thank you for your additional information. I thought that toilet twinning might be well-known before in this forum, but could not find any hint.
Nevertheless, I think, it is one way to duplicate the number of toilets in areas, where there is a great need. It is also an opportunity to feel responsible for a toilet once donated, should continue to fulfill its purpose for long-term.

Best regards

Wolfgang
