Welcome to join us in helping sustainable development along and making a difference in the world!

Our vision is to make dry toilets an essential part of sustainable development in order to ensure that future generations will also be able to enjoy clean water and a healthy environment.

Did you know?


About 2.4 billion people live without even a basic toilet

900 million of them defecate in the ground. The toilet output of 4.1 billion people – 60% of the world’s population – is not being handled properly. In Finland there are concerns about the eutrophication of water bodies and, on the other hand, the depletion of phosphorus. Recycling of phosphorous should be more efficient.

What we do?

The Global Dry Toilet Association of Finland provides unbiased and free advice.  We are also involved in a number of different events where we provide advise and information. We collect and distribute information on different types of dry toilet solutions and our objective is to develop dry toilet technology (DT-technology) and culture.

The biggest event the Association organizes is the international “Dry Toilet Conference” which is organized every three years, next one will be hosted in 2022.

Training and lectures

We arrange education, training and counselling on ecological sanitation and Dry Toilet technology. This includes training in the use, installation and in the various types of dry toilets. The association can demonstrate the products as well as give lectures about the treatment of toilet waste and sanitation in developing countries.
