The idea came from Glastonbury in 1989…
I was in my tent on a sweaty early Sunday morning and needing to go… at
that stage the kharzees were mostly the “long drop” types and after 3 days of
everyones excess’s this was the last place I wanted to visit in my rather fragile
state. In the corner of the tent was a box of Kleenex tissues and I just thought that
if the box was bigger and sturdy, I could rip out the oval bit in the middle and insert
a carrier bag and hey presto I have a toilet that I can use in my own tent! No more
throwing up/gagging whilst trying to hold your arse and clothes away from the long
drop seat… hooray.
Like all good ideas its taken me a while to get this one going as I got rather caught
up with my day job, but nearly 20 years later, about 50 prototypes on, the simple
idea that is Shit Box has arrived. I’m not saying the experience is the most luxurious
but after having quite a few goes myself, I can honestly say it works!
Have a good one… and twos
