Introducing KOHLER Loope

  • Share:

We want to acknowledge this World Toilet Day that sanitation with dignity and safety is a basic human right. Water is essential to our health and well-being, and our world for that matter, and we are committed to making safe water for all a reality – whether it’s water for drinking, for sanitation without risk of disease and violence, or for cleansing and handwashing.

The KOHLER Loope® waterless toilet, a new addition to our WaSH product portfolio, is designed to bring safe sanitation to dense urban environments. Often the only toileting option for these communities isn’t located near homes, requires payment, and is locked at night. As a result, the well-being of women and girls is especially at risk.

Developed by our in-house incubator, Innovation for Good®, KOHLER Loope™ offers a container-based toileting solution to help accelerate change and address global sanitation challenges.

Safe Sanitation for All

KOHLER Loope is but one response to the global sanitation crisis. By partnering with organizations in the field, we are accelerating change with sustainable and scalable solutions for communities with nonsewered sanitation.


A waterless sanitation solution that integrates with container-based sanitation (CBS) waste-collection models.
