For example, one of our sales people is currently in China. She noticed in Beijing that the toilets are a tad different over there. Maybe they don’t want you spending too much time in the restroom? And although this stall offers toilet tissue, she says not all came with such a luxury.
In Shanghai, she saw this broom used for sweeping up in the streets. Do you think it works as well as microfiber?
Our publisher recently visited Amsterdam, where he noticed this very public urinal. These are designed to discourage urination on public structures. They are well lit with three walls for some privacy, and they are available throughout the city.
In response to this, a reader sent us this older version of the same type of urinal in Amsterdam. He tells us that there is also an app available to users looking to locate one of these restrooms. I think that’s fantastic for you guys, but what about the ladies?
And finally, one of our editors visited Switzerland recently and found some interesting facility/cleaning offerings. First, he noticed the same “brooms” as those used in China. If you look closely, you’ll see it sitting on top of this street sweeper.
And, he found that the toilets were excessively large. This photo was taken in a public porta potty and although it is difficult to tell, he says it's large enough to sit two grown men next to each other. And if the seat were down, it would actually be hovering over the bowl — notice that the hole goes all the way to the walls.
I don’t know about you, but I find it very interesting to see how different cleaning and facilities management is in the different countries.
