Paul Marshall, principal at Emmaus Christian School first came across the Uridan water-free urinals, when his architect Small Quinton Coleman recommended the urinals to him.
As the principal of the school, one of Paul Marshall’s roles is to educate the next generation about the environment and build a sense of responsibility in the students of his school.
The philosophy at the school is one of social conscience and caring for the environment. The school has installed recycled plastic benches, and have separate bins for the recycling of the students’ food scraps. The replacement of cisterns with Uridan water-free urinals has reduced water consumption at the school, by a conservatively estimated 40,000 litres per year.
Currently the school has four 1.2m Uridan water-free urinal troughs in the boys’ washroom, which have been successful. The urinals have been easy to maintain and keep clean, they look great on the wall and the new urinals have helped to build water awareness among the student groups. The staff, parents and children of the school contribute to the water saving in the community.
In the future, Paul Marshall would like to install more Uridan water-free urinals and be in a position, whereby he can measure the schools water consumption more accurately.
The Uridan water-free urinals are available from Watersave Australia .
