What it all comes down to in the end...
I studied as a forester and worked for many years in both the Public and private sector forests. In 2002 I was able to purchase our own woodland with my partner Rosie. We needed an economic driver for the woodlands and a market for considerable amounts of Poplar timber. I have attended and worked many festivals over the years and had often been involved in Latrines! I dreamed of building a mobile compost toilet. Then one day I saw an IBC (industrial bulk container) mounted on a small trailer. This gave me the idea of stacking a flat packed shed on top and there was the first mobile compost toilet in the UK. The product has developed over the years and Thunderboxes are now a major component of the British festival scene as well as being sold as remote toilet facilities for camp grounds, forest schools, and fishing lakes to name a few!
