Ecotoilets were originally sold by Whilton Chandlery when we looked for a better alternative to the chemical toilets used on narrowboats and initially sold a huge Canadian compost toilet. Due to the difficulties of getting this toilet accepted on boats, we started selling the Separett range of toilets and the Air Head toilet. These rapidly became adopted as an excellent alternative and sales started to climb. About this time we started to offer the toilets for other purposes, especially the Separett range which was designed for domestic use. Using the Ecotoilets branding the business developed to the point where we outgrew our premises and relocated to a large office/warehouse unit at Lutterworth. We have now set up Ecotoilets as a separate company and this year we made the move to the Natures Head toilet which provides a far better option for the canal boating fraternity.
Who are we?
Susannes’s experience of composting toilets which goes back over 7 years plus, selling and supporting over 2000 composting toilet customers. Susanne was instrumental in the setting up of Ecotoilets. She readily accepted a compost toilet when she moved onto a narrowboat and now, with over six years’ experience knows all about them. She is an illustrator and graphic artist who does most of the artwork, literature and advertising, as well as amusing cartoons and poems to help people understand how to use their toilets. She has lived for the last three years with a composting toilet and knows them well.
