      I am researching potential composting toilets for use on Yirrganydji Country. I have come across a great design that has an obscure acronym as its name. The CRAPPER stands for – Composting, Rotating, Aerobic, Pollution Prevention Excreta Reducer. Acronym aside, as I say, it is quite a good design. I was wondering though if you could shed some insight as to whether this name might be considered offensive??
      Thanks in advance

        Hi Carlie,

        Your inquiry made me curious! And so, I researched what CRAPPER is all about. It is indeed a great design and inspiration for a compact toilet. Crapper is a slang word for toilet; if used in its context, it wouldn’t sound offensive.

        While exploring your options, make sure to incorporate these additional design considerations for Dawul Wuru and Yirrganydji Country context : protecting Country, flexibility, transportability, and seasonality.

        Good luck with your further research!
