To some people, ecological toilets are a synonym for dry toilets. In searching for an alternative more adapted to our modern lives, I found two models and some great ways to be more ecological.
I found the first model, Eco Toilet Concept by designer Jang Woo-seoka, on buzzecolo.com. The concept literally floored me by combining two utilities, the sink and the toilet. The way it operates is simple: use used water when you wash your hands to fill the toilet tank so you don’t waste our most precious resource: drinking water. It’s a wonder that the concept hasn’t already swept the Canadian market.
There are also models of compact toilets. Some have a macerating pump and an electric flush. With no external tank and using just 4 litres per flush, the toilet offers good opportunities when space or plumbing is a problem.
