Clean Team by Ideo.org, Unilever and Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP).
The fact that some 1 billion city dwellers worldwide lack adequate sanitation facilities in their homes, Unilever and Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor have developed an affordable in-home sanitisation system.
Clean Team is a portable toilet that is delivered to customer homes and is serviced three times a week.
We wanted to develop a sanitary toilet and collection service that is suitable for impoverished urban environments, says the Clean Team.
The project began in Kumasi, Ghana, with the hope to extend to many more low-income communities. Working alongside locals gave the Clean Team the opportunity to tailor the project based on the needs and concerns of the community.
