When is a compost toilet not a compost toilet?
When it doesn't produce compost!. Ours starts
the day you start!
The Thunderbox Mobile
Compost Toilet has gone ICONIC! Not only famous
as an environmental alternative to the chemical
toilet on the festival circuit, we are now copied
by other manufacturers! We take it as a compliment
but are they as good?! We are best sellers at
a camp ground near you as well as The National
Trust, Forestry Commission, Natural England and
many forest schools, private estates, Allotment
Associations and of course glampers galore!
The key difference
with our system is that we use a large but very
tactile container that provides massive maintenance
free capacity but, (along with our proven design)
also creates an incredibly efficient composting
container. This means no heavy handling involved
with bins and buckets or environmental health
issues relating to moving un-composted materials.
Our system has been approved by the Environment
Agency and we even have our own code of practice
with them. This is because we're professional
composters, not just a timber retail outlet.
Here at the Thunderbox
Collective we make a variety of compost toilets
to order, or you can hire them for festivals and
other short term events. From as little as £1750,
Thunderboxes are a virtually maintenance free
system that is ideal for a wide variety of situations.
They are pleasant to use, require no water or
electricity, or even vehicle access, and most
importantly make great compost! Not only have
we been making Thunderboxes since 2003, we use
one ourselves so we know how little maintenance
is needed. Our family of 6 has been using our
present tank for over year and it's only half
full, whereas a wheelie bin would last us 25 days!
Thunderboxes give total flexibility whilst maintaining
sanitation standards and user comfort.
There are clear social, environmental and cultural
benefits for using a viable alternative to chemical
toilets for off-grid provision. We, the Thunderbox
Collective are on that mission!
