Earlier in the year The Royal Parks entered their new accessible toilets in the Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park for the Loo of the Year Awards. A couple of months ago we learned that the toilets had won a Platinum Award and at the Award Ceremony in early December we discovered that they had won the UK Best Eco Toilets Award.
Naturally we are delighted and would like to say how much we enjoyed working with The Royal Parks and the design team.

Open Air magazine published an article, Call of Nature, by Andrew Warren and Kate de Selincourt in their June 2016 edition. The magazine is sold to businesses carrying on outdoor activities such as glamping, outdoor events and al fresco weddings.
The article takes a broad look at waterless toilets and provides a checklist of things you should find out if you are thinking of buying one.

We are delighted to have supplied a remote waterless toilet for an exclusive golf club near Ascot. On a large course you can be some distance from the club house. Interrupting play to ‘pay a visit’ is almost certainly undesirable. Installing a NatSol composting toilet by the ninth hole could be the solution you were looking for. No water, no power, no freezing risk, no odours, low maintenance and very low running costs.
Aware that our compost toilet instruction booklet shows our old MK 1 pedestal, we decided to visit Hollow Ash Shepherd’s Hut Holidays for a photoshoot now that their peak camping season is over.
It is always good to have an excuse to visit installations and to meet our customers for feedback. We also like to see what people have done to customise their toilets and this is a fine example!
The shepherd hut based toilet building is looking great after two seasons of campers.
NatSol Director Andy Warren goes on tour to see how users of our compost loos are getting along. He visits a church, allotment, glamping site and private household.
In 2012 NatSol was chosen to design a toilet system for a new accessible facility in the Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park, London. The toilets opened to the public in Sept 2014 and are working well. We are monitoring performance and are looking to develop this approach for other high use sites.
Ten 10 years of supplying toilets for off mains sites
Now that we have recovered from the shock of how fast 10 years can fly by we are enjoying this important milestone. During this period we have been pleased to provide wheelchair accessible toilet facilities for an increasingly diverse range of off-mains sites from allotments and village churches to public parks. After ten years and over 400 compost toilet installations, we are very confident in the concept, which remains largely unchanged.
New Compost Toilet looking really good
A full access NatSol compost toilet forms the base for a very lovely new installation for a luxury camping (glamping) set up in Herefordshire. We are always pleased when customers want to design their own building and we have designed the vault so that it forms the foundations and floor to make this a relatively simple option. As you can see, this is a particularly fine example by Jeremy Harris of Hollow Ash Shepherd’s Huts. Continue reading
