A very happy loo at this hip Aussie cafe, Golden Gecko, in Toronto’s westside
It’s pretty normal to queue for an hour or more for a decent Montreal brunch as I did here at Arthurs Nosh Bar but it’s so much more worth it when there’s an awesome restroom
Dan from Toilography went to Embassy Bar in Toronto’s Kensington Market, a bohemian area renowned for its street art. The words of wisdom graffitied onto these washroom walls certainly didn’t disappoint.
Dan from Toilography went to Ravenswood, North Queensland, and saw a classic Aussie thunderbox outside an historic miner’s site. Take a tour of the town’s attractions, pubs & toilets, and you’ll even get to meet Woodie, a true Aussie character!
Dan from Toilography went to Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg and saw these funky shipping container toilets, as well as a statue of a rather famous bear named Winnie. Take a look at the video here:
The park’s washrooms were constructed in 2013 and have even picked up a couple of design awards in the years that followed. I was definitely glad to have had the chance to come here!
It might not be the most interesting loo to look at, but it’s a pretty cool concept. MEC in downtown Winnipeg has a composting toilet on their second floor, the contents of which is collected in the floor below and used as fertilizer.
I’ve since found out MEC has a Green Buildings initiative, of which the Winnipeg outlet was the first retail building in the country to comply with a national standard of reducing energy consumption by 50%. The composting toilet is of course part of this initiative. Good stuff!!
