There are hundreds of public events organized each year across the country and most of the event venues do not have adequate toilet facilities to cater to the huge numbers of people. it is observed that the toilet facilities did not receive much attention earlier but with the revolution we started, there is an increasing effort being made to provide clean toilet facilities during such events.
The event venues like Dzongs, Lhakhangs, parks, town squares, national stadium, and other important sites are only equipped with facilities sufficient for their everyday users and investing in anything more is uneconomical. Therefore, we see the existing facilities being overwhelmed during public events resulting in undesirable and often unsafe consequences.
we have seen desperate effort made by organizers in setting up additional toilet facilities to cater to the masses by building makeshift infrastructures. While it’s a laudable initiative we noticed that it’s a wasteful investment for a one-time event, and moreover the facilities often land up being substandard.
Even private functions conducted at home like marriage. promotion , rimdro, funeral and so on are faced with similar challenges of limited everyday facility being overwhelmed by huge number of guest.
Our portable toilet services, which was initiated on 2015 came a long way; from wooden portable toilets we designed in 2015, to aesthetic Japanese folding toilets in 2016, donated by JCI, and finally to world-class imported toilets in 2018.
The services has been used by the government, businesses, private individuals and communities across fifteen Dzongkhags, and we are proud to have been able to provide high-standard toilet facilities and generate interest and appreciation among people.
In terms of economy and sustainability we learned that it’s the most cost-effective solution, with the efficiency for one structure to travel places to different events, thereby saving enormously on resources, time and man power for the organizers. Besides the ease of setting up and the aesthetic value added, we have noticed that good facilities encouraged people to be mindful about the way they used it, which has a significant bearing on cultivating good toilet habits.
