Born in the heart of the Southern Alps of New Zealand
Based in Twizel, we are a small family-owned business with one clear goal in mind, to offer New Zealand with an affordable unique way of disposing of human waste when a toilet is not available or not an option.
Having lived in Aoraki - Mount Cook National Park for over ten years, we noticed an increased demand for a solution to the most basic human necessity.
For years, most people would just 'go' behind a tree, a rock, or in the best scenario, dig a hole. With the number of hikers in NZ booming, we believed this attitude was no longer acceptable.
We also thought there could be a better solution than the poo pot sold at the Department of Conservation Centres. Hikers were reluctant to use it as they had to deal with the nasty smelly 'deeds' at the end of a trip - this was putting people off and back to the old habits.
After some research, we found out National Parks in the US were providing toilet pouches pre-loaded with 'poo' powder for its visitor. The powder treats waste; the package is safe to go into the backpack and brought back to dispose of in a regular waste bin.
Toilet kit idea was a no-brainer solution, and that is how we started our 'poo' business.
