4 Ways Portable Toilets Benefit the Environment

Though portable toilets are not as elegant as traditional toilets, they offer significant environmental benefits. Today's portable toilets are much more disease- and odour-resistant than those of past generations due to advances in technology and industrial science. Our planet can benefit from portable toilets in a number of notable ways.

Ensure Proper Waste Disposal

Townships in South Africa are not known for having good sanitation. In addition to carrying harmful microorganisms, human excrement can also contaminate water sources if it is not disposed of properly.

Conserve Water

70% of the earth's surface is covered by water, but not all of it can be consumed. South Africa and other parts of the world are prone to droughts and water shortages, so being mindful of your water usage is recommended. Traditional toilets use significantly more water per flush than portable toilets.

Keep the Environment Free of Toxic Waste

Waste-borne parasites will flourish in contaminated water bodies, causing poor public health. Human waste attracts flies, which can spread diseases like wildfire. Toxins will not be spread to the environment when portable toilets are available in areas without sanitation.

Reduce the Risk of Diseases Spreading

Besides humans, animals are also susceptible to diseases spread by toxic waste. In order to eliminate the risk, portable toilets are designed to accommodate natural body functions. Construction sites and townships, where sanitation isn't available, are perfect places to use portable toilets.
