The KOHLER Loope™ container-based toilet is designed to bring safe sanitation to dense urban environments where alternative options are often nonexistent.
The World Health Organization estimates that over 1.7 billion people live without basic sanitation in the form of a private toilet or latrine, increasing their risk of contracting diseases such as cholera and dysentery and reducing human well-being and social and economic development.
Developed by our in-house incubator, Innovation for Good®, KOHLER Loope offers a sustainable waterless solution to help address global sanitation challenges.
A waterless sanitation solution that integrates with container-based sanitation (CBS) waste-collection models.

Kohler’s in-house incubator, Innovation for Good®, will launch its first waterless toilet in 2023 to provide informal settlements, water depleted regions, and other in need areas with a high-quality, well-designed, and affordable container-based toilet--Loope.
In Nairobi’s informal settlements, Kohler and Sanergy’s container-based sanitation solution is changing lives. Sanergy’s cofounder and members of Kohler’s Innovation for Good® team discuss the human-centered design approach that made their collaboration a success.
Partnering with Sanergy, a Nairobi-based organization focused on sustainable solutions for nonsewered sanitation, Kohler is developing a container-based sanitation (CBS) option for people living without access to safe sanitation systems.
