By The Numbers
Each Fresh Life Toilet provides customers with a dignified, hygienic, and enjoyable sanitation experience. Each customer is welcomed by a Fresh Life Operator, who provides toilet paper, sawdust, soap and water for hand-washing. Each clean toilet also contains a waste bin, sanitary bin for women, a mirror, and a coat hook to make the experience more pleasant for the user.
Fresh Life prices are in line with the market rates in the informal settlements – and yet we provide so much more in terms of products and services. Customers can pay by the visit, week, or month. Children pay less than adult customers. Some parents buy monthly memberships for children who attend schools with inadequate sanitation facilities. Other families buy a monthly family membership to their neighbourhood Fresh Life Toilet.
Each FLO knows exactly when they can expect their daily visit from our Fresh Life Frontline team, who empty each Fresh Life Toilet 365 days a year. The waste cartridges are sealed before being removed by the professionally trained and equipped team. The cartridges are safely removed to our waste management center and treated in accordance with WHO, industry, and Kenyan government standards.
