What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 WHAT IS THE ECO-POT PROJECT? 

Over the next 60 days, we are trying to raise $200,000 HKD, equivalent to $25,000 USD/ RS₹ 1,673,951 to build eco-toilets in 18 Himalayan villages. 

The Eco-Pot Project is a social non-profit initiative by the Pure Purpose Foundation, in collaboration with Pan-Himalayan Grassroots Development Foundation (Grassroots). The project will fund the construction of around 40 twin-pit water seal eco-toilets in the Gagas River Basin, home to 850 households, near Ranikhet, Uttarakhand. 

Our tested technology will be constructed over a period of 4 months by members of Grassroots and the Barefoot Engineers Guild, focused in hamlets where community managed drinking water projects are being implemented so that open defecation becomes history and the region is 100% sanitised.

OUR AIM

The primary aim of our project is to directly improve the lives of Himalayan women and girls, by providing them with safe sanitation, and reduce the polluting effects of the current lack of toilet facilities on local ecosystems. The Eco-Pot Project will alleviate the pressures on women associated with a lack of safe and clean sanitation facilities.

Become an agent of change for rural women and girls. BACK US NOW. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Become a co-creator today by claiming one of our luxe, artisanal and award-winning rewards. Your generous contributions will provide the grants for this non-profit initiative and impact positive change, improving safety, sanitation and security for young women and girls.

ECO-SPHERE AND ECO-HABITAT: THE ISSUES

60.4 per cent of people in India don’t have access to a toilet and a shocking 48.3 per cent of India defecates in the open. 


Lack of Toilets and Women's Health and Safety 

  • Toilets figure in the top three needs for women's health and security
  • Young women and girls endure a daily struggle of defecating in public, often walking long distances from their homes in the dark, putting them at risk of sexual assault 
  • Women have expressed the shame and disgust they feel at working amongst waste, which disincentives them from cultivating their own fields 
  • In India, 11% of schools do not have toilet facilities and 42% do not have separate toilets for girls, which increases the risk of disease transmission, sexual harassment, and causes girls to drop out or miss school every month whilst menstruating 
  • School completion rates are just 34% for girls compared to 49% for boys.


Water Contamination and Public Health

  •  Open defecation in rural areas has contributed hugely to an increase in water-borne disease 
  •  Defecation near fields, wells and food results in bacteria being accidentally ingested 
  • Health specialists believe that open defecation is the reason that 50 per cent of Indian children are malnourished 
  • In rural areas feuds between families and communal disharmony has resulted from individuals defecating in neighbouring fields

Environmental Degradation

  • Chronic water shortages are being felt across the Himalayas due to springs and streams drying up
  • The lack of vegetal cover to recharge primary water resources and an increasing population renders traditional water collection systems insufficient for meeting local needs
  • Women face immense hardship collecting water from distant sources

 HOW DOES THE TECHNOLOGY WORK?

Eco-Toilet Technology:

  • Each twin soak pit is of 1.2 cubic metres capacity, which is sufficient for a family of 8-9 members 
  • The soak pits are covered with removable slabs enabling the space above to be used for kitchen, garden or other purposes
  • The toilet pan is ceramic and has a U-shaped water seal to keep it odour free, to keep flies and mosquitos out, and to keep pans clean with minimal water usage
  • Over a period of two years waste in pits becomes composted and is easily emptied out to be used as fertiliser 
Fly-Ash Structure: 

  • The toilet super-structure will be made using fly-ash, which is an environmental waste material and pollutant that can be turned into fine quality, light-weight building blocks
  • The recycling of fly-ash greatly reduces the waste produced by coal-based power plants

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?   

The total cost of a twin-pit toilet is $3735 HKD / RS₹ 31,250 

  • Your vital contributions will fund 40%, or $1496 HKD / RS₹ 12,500, of the total cost of giving a family an eco-toilet 
  • The remaining 60% or $2244 HKD / RS₹ 18,750 will be paid by the recipient family, to ensure their ownership and use of the eco-toilet
  • If we raise our target of $200,000 HKD/ RS₹ 1,673,951 – we will be able to build household eco-toilets for around 40 families, 360 individuals, in 18 Ranikhet hamlets.

THE BUDGET 

Our budget will account for the cost of the raw materials needed for building the twin-pit water seal toilet and the surrounding superstructure, including the fly-ash bricks, slabs, cement, pipes etc. 7.5% of the total budget will go to the administrative costs of construction for Grassroots. This includes the cost of paying the Barefoot Engineers Guild, overseeing the project for 4 months and local travel. Another 5% of the total cost will account for the Pure Purpose Foundation administrative costs including travel and accommodation. The budget also covers the purchase costs of the rewards offered and the cost of shipping.

    Porcelain, Stoneware and Wood (20X20X2.7cm)

    Original piece by Ruby Jhunjhunwala, prominent Pune-based ceramic artist whose imaginative and proficient technique has seen her work exhibited across India for over 30 years. Ruby has created a niche for herself in the art world of earthen elements and has her own brand of ceramic ware, ADIPA, with her son.

    Ruby’s art works were recently recognized internationally at the Cluj Ceramic Biennale in Romania, 2017 where she was one of 250 applicants from around the world and the only artist from India to have been selected.

    This Earth Surfaces series, which explores the benevolent earth, was originally curated by Ruby for the Biennale, before she eventually selected a different set of pieces exploring the same theme. In this series, through a textural exploration of the earth surface, Ruby recognises the processes in which the earth changes its face over millions of years, coming together with the other four elements of the universe. Despite the evolution and dissolution of civilisation, she observes that the earth continues to transition in layers, giving forth more opportunities for future generations.

    Ueleiini III - Emma Lindström

    USD$1,800/ RS₹115,800

    Original 90 x 90 cm Mixed Media on Canvas by Swedish Artist Emma Lindström, co-founder of Anohaao Gallery in Gothenburg.

    Emma’s work portrays nothing short of life itself, inspired by satellite views of earth, the universe and the very building blocks of life on a microscopic level. Her work conveys energy and emotion manifest as an explosion of colour. The energy that flows through her whilst creating can later be absorbed and revived by the spectator, in a place beyond the visual sense. Bridging the gap between artist and spectator, and providing a visual link between microcosm and macrocosm, her work serves as a reminder that there is something connecting us all.

    Frozen Surface - Ruby Jhunjhunwala

    USD$230/ RS₹15,070

    Frozen Surface, Earth Surfaces Series
    Porcelain, Stoneware and Wood (20X20X2.7cm)

    Original piece by Ruby Jhunjhunwala, prominent Pune-based ceramic artist whose imaginative and proficient technique has seen her work exhibited across India for over 30 years. Ruby has created a niche for herself in the art world of earthen elements and has her own brand of ceramic ware, ADIPA, with her son.

    Ruby’s art works were recently recognized internationally at the Cluj Ceramic Biennale in Romania, 2017 where she was one of 250 applicants from around the world and the only artist from India to have been selected.

    This Earth Surfaces series, which explores the benevolent earth, was originally curated by Ruby for the Biennale, before she eventually selected a different set of pieces exploring the same theme. In this series, through a textural exploration of the earth surface, Ruby recognises the processes in which the earth changes its face over millions of years, coming together with the other four elements of the universe. Despite the evolution and dissolution of civilisation, she observes that the earth continues to transition in layers, giving forth more opportunities for future generations.
