”I won’t lie to you and say that a composting toilet is a set and forget option for your bathroom, or that it doesn’t require an amount of work to install and maintain. Having a composting toilet does require commitment. However, if you have a commitment to the environment, to lowering your footprint and to living sustainably, the effort is only a small price to pay.”
Elle wanted a system that was as environmentally friendly as possible. An off-grid composting system that required minimal power input from her solar system was the logical choice. In May 2020, Ella had the Clivus Multrum Low Profile installed in her tiny house on wheels in St Kilda, VIC. Follow the link to see what she had to say...
There are many reasons why Tamati chose composting toilets – they have a Clivus Multrum CM10 installed as their main toilet and the Nature Loo Classic 850 installed in their ensuite.
Foxbar Falls is a newly developed campground located in Queensland's cold country, the Granite Belt. Two-and-a-half-hours from Brisbane, and 15 minutes north of Stanthorpe, Foxbar Falls offers a unique camping experience for families, groups, and travellers to enjoy stunning granite, bush and water surrounds.

Situated 15 kilometres north-east of Port Douglas, the Low Isles comprise a four-acre coral cay surrounded by 55 acres of reef within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Area. Low Isles is also a popular tourist destination and attracts thousands of visitors per year. Existing facilities on the island include a composting toilet installed 20+ years ago. The existing facility is not coping with the visitor numbers and needs upgrading.
TMR selected Ecoflo's 903 model rest stop buildings as a basic design for toilets using a combination of composting toilets, mains services and dry vaults. A total of 14 buildings were supplied between May and September 2021. Ecoflo scaled up production to meet TMR's order and timing needs, running two shifts per day and some weekend work to make sure all buildings were delivered on schedule.
With such a small space to work with, a model was needed that didn’t have a large footprint. They were also looking for a unit that was small enough to have enough clearance under the Tiny Home to provide for easy access to maintain the toilet and change the chambers. Often for this reason collection toilets are favoured over true composting toilets but Aimee and Ben wanted a sustainable and easy to maintain toilet.
When we found out that the Charles Sturt University, Albury Wodonga campus was looking at reducing their environmental impact we knew that our range of composting toilets would easily meet their standards, be large enough to handle the capacity of the university and reduce the maintenance needed when compared to their current systems. Read more for a run-down of how the system was implemented.

Ecoflo has recently helped with the provision and installation of a new toilet building and composting toilet in a truck stop on the way up to Toowoomba. The toilet building has been made predominantly out of FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic) building materials that won’t rust, corrode and is resistant to fire and termites.
The park needed toilet facilities that would cope with the extreme temperatures as well as the peaks and troughs in visitor numbers. Importantly, the cultural significance of the area and its fragile environment called for toilets that would leave a minimal footprint on the land.
When the Ikurangi Eco Retreat were looking for a composting toilet system for their eco-friendly cabins they wanted something that looked and felt as close to a ‘normal’ toilet as possible. This would allow their guests to have a great experience at the resort without freaking out a little about the bathroom situation!
