Use our Loos Campaign

USE OUR LOOS!

Where to go, when you need to go ?
A national campaign mobilising local business to make their loos accessible to the community they serve. We all need to use a loo or public restroom when we are out and about each day and it’s getting harder and harder to find a good clean toilet to get relief and allow us to enjoy the local area. With Local authorities struggling to provide enough facilities, now many local businesses and store owners are keen join into a Community Toilet Scheme (CTS) to make sure that everyone can continue to enjoy local amenities and continue shopping. Libraries, Museums and Public buildings will also be targeted

The British Toilet Association

The BTA along with Uniliver (Domestos Brand), the Gt British Toilet Map, NeonTribe and Edelman have joined forces to promote a National Campaign to record the locations of all publicly available loo’s throughout the UK. These include toilets provided by local authorities, private providers like Healthmatic and Danfo (UK) and for the first time we will be promoting those facilities provided by local shops/stores and businesses to help all types of users to find relief when travelling or shopping “away from home”

We are currently recruiting a part-time Campaign Manager to help co-ordinate the collection of data and information on all those businesses who want to offer their support to this campaign,

Unilever (Domestos)

Domestos believes that a clean, safe toilet should be within everyone’s reach.
That is why it is tackling the demise of the UK public toilet and making it accessible once more.
Just as Domestos has been doing, in many underdeveloped countries, in partnership with UNICEF for over four years waging the war on poor sanitation, because everyone deserves a clean toilet.

Businesses are rewarded for you doing your business. Fame and visibility from free publicity and hopefully increased turnover from increased footfall. Feeling the added benefit of  a warm feeling that they are helping people live their lives to the fullest.

USE OUR LOOS is the first national scheme that unlocks the loos that are hidden in our coffee shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. And gives them back to the community.

Great British Public Toilet Map will eventually provide the most accurate and up-to-date map of publicly available loos in the UK, powered by NeonTribe
