Toilets for homes, construction sites, outdoor events - the company’s products cater to a range of sanitation needs across diverse communities in the UK and Internationally.
Since Unreasonable Impact launched in 2016, its global community of over 200 ventures has positively impacted more than 255 million people, reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 48 million tonnes, and has created 39,000 new jobs to date.
