So the decorations are on their way down, Christmas trees are being thrown onto the front lawn and Christmas is starting to feel well and truly over!

Tis’ the season to be jolly… and to have absolutely no idea what to get for our friends and family for Christmas! It’s unlikely that anyone manages to escape the festive season without frantically scrambling for gift ideas, and yet few will ever admit it! While going straight for the gift card is some people’s preferred escape route, we have an even better solution for those willing to inject a little humour into...Continue reading →

It takes a lot for us to notice a washroom service or public toilet. Most of the time our visits to these facilities aren’t with the intention to admire the scenery, and many of us are likely grateful if there is even toilet paper left at the end of a busy day. At the risk of creating a negative impression for customers with a subpar washroom, it is vital that businesses make...Continue reading →

We have all been there – that moment when you suddenly need to go to the toilet, only to find that there are no amenities anywhere nearby. Being ‘caught short’, as it is called, is sometimes inevitable. There are plenty of places in the world where you would be more than lucky to find a conveniently-placed lavatory. But these...Continue reading →

Unless we want to be tethered to our homes at all times the way that Victorian ladies were forced to, the use of public washroom services is absolutely vital to our daily lives. Whether you’re running errands or out having fun with your friends and family, there are few experiences more frustrating than the idea of holding out for the toilet ‘til you get home, with no public washroom...Continue reading →

Most of us take for granted that, in many parts of the world, we are able to use indoor washrooms that are clean, safe and private. In fact, washrooms have become such a regular part of our lives, it’s easy to forget that they were a considerable technological step forward - and one that keeps on advancing. Once just a hole in the ground, some washroom services now...Continue reading →

The period industry has gradually begun to realise the untapped potential that technology has in transforming the way women experience menstruation. While so many things about our day-to-day lives would look barely recognisable to people even 50 years ago, innovations in menstrual health have been stagnant since the 60s and 70s, when the contraceptive pill and self-adhesive pads seemed to herald a...Continue reading →

Sanitary waste disposal can be a tricky field to navigate. A lack of knowledge or even budget can impede both businesses and facilities managers, whose responsibility it is to ensure that this waste is handled appropriately. This too often means that disposal facilities are overlooked, with consequences for their employees and the environment.
It may not be the first thought to cross your mind when jetting off on holiday or setting out on a business trip, but the washroom experience is something that can have a significant effect on our daily lives, especially if you spend most of your day away from your home or hotel.

Sanitary bins and sanitary products have gained a lot of media attention in the last few years, from period poverty to environmental concerns. Yet despite being a legal requirement for all public places and businesses in the UK, it is still far too common for these facilities to be either inadequate or simply non-existent in public washrooms.
These days we’re exposed to so many different types of waste disposal, it can seem like it’s impossible to keep track. Both in our personal lives and in business, segregating our rubbish has become a part of our daily lives, whether we do it out of habit or to consciously to help the environment.
While we may be used to seeing recycling-only bins or bins dedicated...Continue reading →

Tattooing is an artform that has been with us for thousands of years. In recent years, however, tattooing has become more affordable and accessible than ever. They appear in magazines, television and most celebrities will boast tattoos of their own.
Though this is great news for tattoo businesses and artists, who have seen an influx in interest, it is more vital than...Continue reading →

As a business owner, waste management can throw a number of curve balls at you, no matter what kind of waste you are dealing with. What you hope will be a simple and quick process can turn into an endless list of regulations and symbols that don’t seem to make any sense. Though businesses that rely on instruments like needles and other sharp objects (such as the medical...Continue reading →

Whether it be sanitary products or nappies, sanitary waste disposal in public washroom services is an issue that has been synonymous with women’s facilities for many years. While the issues surrounding the provision of adequate disposal facilities for women are by no means over, the lack of waste disposal...Continue reading →

With a recent scandal involving the pile up of human body parts in an NHS waste disposal system, it’s fair to say that the wrong waste disposal provider can create a very unpleasant experience for everyone involved. Not every business will have to deal with

Period poverty has become a moral imperative for governments all over the world, and with good reason. Due to lack of funds, thousands of women and girls across the UK are forced to resort to unhygienic, and sometimes dangerous methods during their menstrual cycle. In fact, the latest research suggests that

They may not be as appealing as a city library, but public washroom services are an essential part of our daily lives. Yet despite the importance of these facilities, many of our public toilets are being neglected, both by councils and the public. A recent poll revealed that over a third of...Continue reading →

Menstruation may still be a thorny topic for discussion in the workplace even now, but imagine being the first woman ever to do your job. For the first female astronauts, periods were an even trickier subject to broach with their almost all-male colleagues at NASA. Even in industries where female co-workers are far more common, men have on the whole been “spared” the...Continue reading →

The phrase ‘everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask’ could easily apply to sanitary bins. Many decision makers are uncertain about the requirements surrounding sanitary bin provision and maintenance, while others may not have thought to investigate.
Whether you’re a business seeking...Continue reading →

To all those who scroll through the headlines every morning, or open up their daily paper, it can feel as if there’s no end to the bad news regarding our environment. Plastic waste, water shortages, widespread pollution and the ever-looming threat of climate change hang over us all; the sheer scale of the problem is often overwhelming. However, we aren’t completely powerless. We can all enact individual changes to help stem the tide, and...Continue reading →
