Company teams with Ohio Conservation Federation on critical issue for outdoor enthusiasts.
OCEANSIDE, Calif. , To raise awareness of the issues posed by human waste in the great outdoors and how to prevent them, RESTOP will co-present a session with the Ohio Conservation Federation during Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Ariz. The seminar, titled “Sanitation: When Nature Calls…,” will be presented on May 18, 2018, 10 a.m. – 10:50 and May 20, 2018, 11 – 11:50 a.m. in Classroom 3.
The Ohio Conservation Federation’s purpose is to advocate for wildlife and habitat in Ohio and Lake Erie and promote water and land stewardship. Together, the organization’s President Matt Misicka and RESTOP Sales Manager Lou Ortego will discuss the importance of proper disposal of human waste in the wild to prevent contamination of soil and water and the spread of disease, while preserving the environment for others to enjoy. They will also share options for containing waste safely.
“Principle three of Leave No Trace is to dispose of waste properly, and a simple and sanitary way to adhere to that guidance is to pack out waste,” explained Ortego. “RESTOP offers a full line of portable travel toilet products that are lightweight, easy to carry, and safe for disposal, making them a convenient alternative to burying waste for campers, hikers and other adventure enthusiasts.”
During the presentation, Ortego will demo RESTOP products and hand out samples. In addition, RESTOP will be exhibiting at Booth #B6 during the three-day event, where it will showcase its newest products for 2018, including:
- RS1 Liquid Waste Bags: These bags contain super absorbent polymers and enzymes that can absorb a full 20 ounces of urine. Ample toilet paper and antimicrobial wipes are included.
- RS2 Solid & Liquid Waste Bags: The patented “bag within a bag” design safely contains and neutralizes human waste. Like the RS1 bags, toilet paper and antimicrobial wipes are included.
- RS2W Wilderness Waste Containment Pouch: Five waste bags packaged in a durable mesh tote to provide an easy way to carry out used bags.
- The Go-Pack System: When no restrooms are available, this handy backpack carries a toilet seat that can also be converted into a shaded seat for resting weary legs during long hikes. Includes three waste bags.
- RS000 Commode: This solid base holds a RESTOP full-size toilet seat, which can withstand 300 pounds of pressure.
