Sustenta Bathroom Toilet

Sustenta is a 2 piece toilet that aims to redefine eco-consciousness. It sets a new standard in water conservation by using 2.5 liters (0.66 gallons) per flush, which is lower than the actual ecologic toilets that range from 3.5L to 4.8L. This represents a reduction of up to 60 percent in water usage, marking a viable option for day a day sustainability. Recognizing the importance of water conservation and toilet functionality, Sustenta delivers a new toilet experience that also contributes to the preservation of one of the planet's key resource.
