Of course I should say that I like it because it’s so environmentally-friendly: it’s made mostly from wood, it uses no water in its operation and it creates a useful end product in the form of compost. However, much as I love this privy for those reasons, my primary reason for sharing this with you is becasue it just looks so damn cool – relatively speaking of course.
One aspect I particularly liked was the door’s self-closing mechanism: two iron bars hung up on a piece of rope. I mean you have to admire the simplicity. (It would’ve been nice if the rope had been made from environmentally-friendly hemp; but you can’t have everything)
Now I would have liked to give you a proper review of this contraption: you know comfort, ambiance, lighting, warmth; that kind of thing; but I went before I left the house. Sorry.
Hopefully you can understand my excitement for this environmentally-friendly toilet (yeah right) and hopefully I have shown you that there can be more to public toilets than rude graffiti and George Michael.
Good work National Trust; let’s see some more of these please.
