For this season on Pirita beach sanitary containers will have a weatherproof cover around them with a photo of a pine forest. We ask the city and its residents to think about the fact that the proposed concept is:
- Dangerous for Pirita habitat
Photo wallpapers imitate the forest, which creates a danger for birds that can crash into the wall and most likely die.
- Not sustainable
We understand that having sanitary containers on the beach is an affordable solution, but we want our city council to come up with something more sustainable. The Pirita beach is a popular location all year long for the residents of Tallinn and its tourists. The road that goes along the beach is a few kilometers long. No doubt the toilets will not stand idle during out-of-season times, too.
The desire to integrate toilets into nature must be addressed in more modern ways and it should be made with sustainable materials.
We ask the city council to provide its residents and all the visitors with public toilets that are accessible all year long, made with sustainable materials, and safe for the rich and unique habitat of Pirita Beach.
At the moment our public toilets look like: https://www.facebook.com/groups/303738826801954/permalink/1335611940281299/
