I went home to my brother’s wedding in Canada where he’d hired a trailer that looked like a white box, but had nicer toilets inside and it was the talk of the wedding!
A month later, I was at beautiful outdoor wedding here on the Sunny Coast, everything was stunning except for the two ugly portaloos in the corner.
At one point in the evening I noticed the bride and two bridesmaids going over to the portaloos, one bridesmaid used the torch on her phone so the bride could see, and one bridesmaid held her dress and the door while the bride pees with the door open cause her dress wouldn’t all fit in.
I thought to myself; this insanity must stop.
I did a thorough search online and could not find any portable toilets that were unique and had character, so I had a crack at building one myself with some talented mates. My dad builds tiny homes in Canada, so it was fun drawing on that creativity from him.
My full time job is a director at a local non-profit working with youth, so I’ve been taking crap from people for free for years, so thought it was about time I get paid for it!
As a family we want to do this business together. We use a portion of the profits to help build toilets in developing countries and model to our kids how to help others who don’t have basic necessities. There are 600 million kids who don’t have access to safe, clean toilets at their school – this is a cause we are passionate about helping. So know that your guests will poop and pee with purpose – funds from your event will build safe toilets for those who need them!
Sidenote: I wanted to call the business “Glitter Sh**ter” but my wife didn’t want the kids repeating that at school.
