A combination of urinal and planter. With its sleek design and by making public spaces a bit greener, the GreenPee contributes to a positive appearance of its surrounding area.
Due to our background in environmental psychology, we regularly get requests to help find a solution to the problem of public urination. The current facilities are often inadequate and disfigure the streetscape. In order to bridge the gap between a functional and visually attractive solution, we developed the GreenPee, a combination of urinal and planter.
The GreenPee is not only beautiful and functional, but also sustainable. The GreenPee does not need to be connected to the water or sewage system, which means less pollution for the environment. In addition, the GreenPee contributes to a circular economy. The GreenPee collects urine in a container that is filled with odor absorbing hemp fibers. After composting, this fiber-urine-mixture becomes a phosphate-rich organic fertilizer. This fertilizer can be used to fertilize parks and green areas in a natural way. The GreenPee is equipped with a practical in-hydro system with a 30 liter reservoir for the collection of rainwater. This ensures that the plants only need to be watered sparingly, even during the dry season.
