  • RS2W Wilderness Waste Containment Pouch: Five waste bags packaged in a durable mesh tote to provide an easy way to carry out used bags.

All RESTOP products are designed for anyone who spends long hours away from restrooms, such as those who camp and hike in the wilderness. The solutions provide users peace of mind that they’ll have safe, easy access to facilities no matter where they are.

Restop Solutions Contain Human Waste to Prevent Spread of Hepatitis A in California, Flesh-Eating Bacteria in Hurricane-Torn Area

Self-contained disposable toilets provide safe, clean solutions to prevent fecal-oral transmission of deadly diseases.

ESCONDIDO, Calif., October 25, 2017 – Hepatitis A outbreaks in San Diego, Los Angeles and other parts of California – caused by the spread of the virus from feces to mouth – are unprecedented. With more than half of the cases occurring among the homeless, who do not have access to bathroom facilities with sinks to wash their hands after use, an individual infected with the virus can easily transmit it to others through touch. To prevent the spread of hepatitis A, one of the steps government officials are emphasizing is sanitation, and Restop (www.Restop.com) disposable toilets provide sanitary solutions for human feces that can be safely disposed of in garbage receptacles.

Restop products are also being utilized in Houston, Texas, and throughout areas of Florida impacted by the recent hurricanes, where necrotizing fasciitis, more commonly referred to as the flesh-eating bacteria, has been spreading. Affected individuals have been exposed to the fecal bacteria, which can be spread through floodwaters contaminated with sewage and enter the body through cuts in the skin’s surface. Travel toilets such as those from Restop can reduce the accumulation of human waste by providing for its proper collection and disposal.

“Communities affected by outbreaks of potentially deadly illnesses need every opportunity to reduce the risk of transmission,” said Restop’s President and COO Jim Goode. “Restop products can help prevent the spread of infectious viruses and bacteria by providing access to hygienic facilities that contain human waste as well as antimicrobial wipes for cleaning hands after use. The disposable toilets can then be placed in trash receptacles for safe disposal in landfills.”

To help impacted areas, Restop, a Southern California manufacturer, is providing government officials with product samples, including:
• RS1 liquid waste bags that hold up to 20 ounces of urine yet are small enough to fit into a pocket, glove compartment or backpack.
• RS2 solid and liquid waste bags, which feature a “bag within a bag” design to contain and neutralize both liquid and solid waste.

Toilet paper and antimicrobial wipes are included with both options. Both RS1 and RS2 bags are inexpensive, small enough to conveniently carry, and easy to distribute to populations at meal sites, health stations and shelters. Government officials interested in receiving product samples should contact Info@Restop.com.

To assist affected communities in California as well as areas impacted by the recent hurricanes, Restop is offering 20 percent off purchases in the Continental United States through its website at www.Restop.com. Restop products are also available at retailers throughout the country (see www.restop.com/retailers for a current list) and at some national parks.

Restop Solutions Implemented to Address Human WasteDuring Hurricane Clean-up

Self-contained disposable toilets provide safe, clean options for victims and crews while sanitation systems are not functioning.

ESCONDIDO, Calif., October 3, 2017 – The accumulation of human waste has always posed a major threat to public health as a horrible aftermath of serious natural disasters – including the most recent hurricanes, Harvey and Irma. To help reduce the catastrophic spread of disease during recovery efforts in areas affected by these recent storms, the use of disposable toilet products such as those from Restop are encouraged to provide sanitary solutions for human feces that can be safely disposed in landfills.

A Southern California manufacturer, Restop, has given an array of its portable sanitation solutions to J.C. Delivery, a trucking company in Texas supporting Hurricane Harvey clean-up efforts, and to Pandora Adventures, who is providing humanitarian aid in impacted areas, so their teams have access to hygienic facilities that keep the environment clean.

The solutions the company provided include:

  • RS1 liquid waste bags that hold up to 20 ounces of urine yet are small enough to fit into a pocket, glove compartment or backpack
  • RS2 solid and liquid waste bags, which feature a “bag within a bag” design to contain and neutralize both liquid and solid waste
  • Restop Commode and optional full-size toilet seat that provides a solid base for the Restop waste bags
  • Restop Privacy Shelter, a collapsible shelter that can be used to create a portable restroom stall

“Our relief workers are able to take care of themselves and the environment while helping others thanks to the Restop products we received,” said Sean Sykora, owner and president of Pandora Adventures.

Brief Relief Personal Lavatory Systems Utilized to Aid Hurricane Relief Workers and Address Health Hazards from Human Waste

In storms’ aftermath, portable, landfill-safe disposable bathroom solutions give utility workers, first responders and volunteer organizations access to hygienic sanitation facilities that contain waste.

 

ESCONDIDO, Calif. – Lack of access to functioning bathroom facilities in areas affected by the most recent hurricanes poses a serious threat to human health as the accumulation of human feces mounts. To help prevent bacteria-laden waste from spreading disease among residents and those helping with the relief and recovery efforts in the impacted communities, disposable toilet and portable lavatory systems that capture waste and are EPA-approved for landfills, like those manufactured by Brief Relief, are recommended to assist workers.

 

When human waste contaminates water systems, infectious bacteria such as E. coli, staphylococcus, salmonella and tetanus can spread by consumption or skin contamination and cause widespread and debilitating illnesses among populations.

 

“In areas hit by the recent hurricanes, there are many communities where adequate restrooms or portable facilities are not available for residents and those who have come to support them,” said Pete Lindemann, Brief Relief’s national sales manager. “We’re proud to aid in the efforts to keep everyone safe by providing access to sanitary facilities that also eliminate the environmental risks posed by the disposal of human waste outdoors.”

 

Brief Relief donated a range of supplies to Sprint to provide workers clean and safe sanitation systems while working to get much-needed service back up and running in the areas hardest hit by disruptions to communications networks, including:

 

  • Brief Relief Disposable Urine Bag, a single-use, funnel-design bag for liquid waste, containing a patented blend of polymers and enzymes that convert urine into a deodorized gel that can be disposed of safely in any garbage container.
  • The Commode, a sturdy, five-gallon base with full-size soft foam toilet seat that sets up instantly for emergency situations and comes with an optional riser for additional height.
  • Disposa-John Portable Restroom, which is designed for both liquid and solid waste, using a bag-in-bag design that seals in waste and odor while the enzymes and polymers work to break it down and convert it into a deodorized gel. The Disposa-John bags are to be used with Brief Relief’s Commodes.
  • Privacy Shelter, a large, sound-reducing enclosure for the Commode that can be easily transported in a carry case and set up by a single person.

In addition to its field restroom solutions, Brief Relief also provides other products designed to assist in emergency situations, including the Fluid Tactical Electrolyte Drink Mix, which provides those exposed to dehydration and heat stress with needed sodium and a balance of minerals such as calcium and magnesium to prevent cramps while working, and the Heat Relief towels that provide cooling relief.
“We are so grateful for the supplies we received from Brief Relief,” said Tanya Lin-Jones, a network engineering manager at Sprint who has responsibility for the Sprint Emergency Response Team (ERT). “They have been invaluable in helping our teams work as quickly and safely as possible to keep customers and emergency personnel connected across those regions impacted by the hurricanes.”

 

To help with sanitation and reduce the spread of disease, Brief Relief is offering free shipping of its products to all hurricane-affected areas in the continental United States through the end of September. Brief Relief products can be purchased online at http://briefrelief.com/shop. For more information about Brief Relief solutions, visit www.briefrelief.com.

 

About Brief Relief

Brief Relief disposable toilets and portable lavatory systems keep teams in the field and out of the public eye when nature calls. Besides being safe, convenient and sanitary options for men and women, using the products can help workers avoid being seen doing an act of “indecent exposure” by the public, cell phone cameras and news crews.

Bundutec to Showcase Restop Disposable Toilets at Overland Expo EAST

Portable, environmentally friendly sanitation facilities are perfect for camping and hiking.

ESCONDIDO, Calif., September 13, 2017 – Camper manufacturer BundutecUSA knows its customers like to visit beautiful, often remote, spots in nature. And to help ensure they have access to clean sanitation facilities while following Leave No Trace™ principles in these unspoiled areas, the company will feature Restop travel toilet products at Overland Expo EAST, September 29–October 1, 2017, in Asheville, N.C.

Overland Expo EAST is the premier overlanding event in the world, featuring educational sessions and vendors of camping, vehicle and motorcycle equipment. At its trade show booth, number 14B, Bundutec will showcase its campers, trailers, rooftop tents and awnings as well as display samples of several Restop products popular among its customers, including:

  • RS1 liquid waste bags that hold up to 20 ounces of urine yet are small enough to fit into a pocket, glove compartment or backpack
  • RS2 solid and liquid waste bags, which feature a “bag within a bag” design to contain and neutralize both liquid and solid waste
  • Restop Commode and optional full-size toilet seat that provide a solid base for the Restop waste bags
  • Restop Privacy Shelter, a collapsible shelter that can be used to create a portable restroom stall

“Restop products are the perfect complement to our line of campers by extending our customers’ enjoyment of the great outdoors,” said Accounts Manager Jenn Crooks of Bundutec. “We’re proud to be displaying Restop offerings at Overland Expo EAST so attendees can check out their range of worry-free solutions to a common challenge in the wilderness.”

During the event, Bundutec will also highlight the environmentally friendly aspects of Restop products. Not only do the bags prevent pollution of nature by human waste, which can contain chemicals, pharmaceuticals and resistant strains of bacteria, but they are also approved for landfill disposal.

“We are thrilled that Bundutec will be showcasing our leading disposable sanitation solutions,” said Restop’s Western Region Sales Manager Lou Ortego. “Our convenient and clean options not only make any trip easier, but they also help campers and hikers leave nature the way they found it.”

In addition to camping and hiking, Restop products are commonly used in emergency situations when normal sanitation systems are not functioning, by people who do not want to use portable toilets at large events, and among military personnel.

Restop products can be purchased at www.Restop.com, at retailers throughout the country (see www. restop.com/retailers for a current list) and at some national parks.

Where Will They “Go”? Millions of Travelers will be Stuck in Traffic During Labor Day Weekend with No Restroom Access

Environmentally-friendly disposable travel toilets by Restop.com offer a practical solution.

Escondido, Calif., August 30, 2017 – Busy roads. Nowhere to pull over. Kids in the car. Labor Day road trips can quickly turn into an unpleasant experience when someone in the car has to go to the bathroom and there isn’t one available.  Restop (www.Restop.com) offers easy-to-use sanitary, environmentally-friendly solutions, starting at just $3.40. Sized for convenience, their single-use travel toilets, RS1 and RS2, are small enough to fit in a glove compartment.

 

Unlike the unsanitary ‘pee in a bottle’ solutions of the past, the RS1 and Rs2 safely contain waste by solidifying polymers and enzymes, thus, leaving no mess or spillage. The used product can simply be disposed of in any trash receptacle, as it is completely landfill-safe.

American Innotek’s President and Chief Operating Officer Jim Goode commented, “Since we are based in Southern California, we know all too well that traffic back-ups due to a holiday, accident or just heavy commuter volume can prevent cars from pulling off the road, sometimes for hours on end. Just like putting snacks and water in the car for a road trip, tossing a RS1 and RS2 in the glovebox can make the trip much more pleasant in case of an unexpected situation.”

Busy travelers aren’t the only ones to find Restop’s products handy. Hikers, aviators, boaters, truckers, hunters, fishermen, backpackers and athletes are among some of the many other people who use these top-rated, environmentally-friendly travel toilets.

Restop products can be purchased at www.Restop.com, at retailers throughout the country (see www. restop.com/retailers for a current list) and at some national parks. For more information about Restop solutions, visit www.Restop.com.
