Refugee Temporary Toilet / Product design

Refugee Temporary Toilet
Refugee Temporary Toilet

War, poverty and famine have led to a growing influx of refugees into Europe, much of which stems from inadequate infrastructure and squalid living conditions. Tens of thousands or even millions of people live in a camp, and hundreds of thousands of people may have to share a toilet, leading to messy sanitary conditions that lead to a major public health disaster. We tried to use the ubiquitous buckets to build a temporary toilet for their needs to ensure safety and privacy. At the same time, we are also increasing the popularity and dissemination of toilet use by making it easier and more visible.
