The Problem

Public Restrooms are an absolute necessity for both genders, but evidently things are far more critical for women as compared to men. While needs of men are limited and can be met with normal restrooms, women fall into scenarios where normal restrooms fall short like:

  • A lone mother with a toddler or an infant in a mall needs to go to restroom. Where does she keep the baby?
  • A pregnant woman needs to use the restroom? Does the restroom have support mechanism to help her stand up?
  • A working woman needs to hit the party just after office. Where does she change?
  • A new mother visits a public place and needs to feed her baby? Where does she?’

The Solution

Merino being a pioneer and leader in the Restroom industry believes that female-friendly toilets should be more accessible  and fulfil the special requirements of girls & women across ages. According to a guide published by WaterAid, WSUP and Unicef, “Female-friendly toilets need to be safe, private, accessible, affordable and well managed, cater for menstrual hygiene management and meet the needs of caregivers.” Merino designs & installs special restroom that are fully equipped with to address these critical needs and go beyond.
