Our philosophy

It’s an exciting challenge for us to deal with a subject that affects every one of us and yet doesn’t get a lot of attention. In our society, we take the use of a comfortable and hygienic toilet for granted. We only ever have to deal with the issue of basic needs when we find ourselves in a situation where these are not a given.

We made it our goal to ensure that you can rely on this basic need being met in any location without having to make compromises with regard to hygiene and comfort. In doing so, we support our nature and enable you to focus on the beautiful things in life.

Geschichte

Once upon a time in Africa.
The success story of TROBOLO®.

The story of TROBOLO® begins in 2012 when our founder Friedrich Lange took some time out to travel around Africa in his caravan for three months. Apart from countless inspiring cultural experiences, he also became aware of the fact that the basic need of a comfortable and hygienic toilet represents a great privilege for many people, while being regarded as a given for most parts of Europe.

It was this realisation that later made the young, passionate inventor create the first prototype of the TROBOLO® system that we know today.

‘Back in the day, I would not have dreamed of getting the TROBOLO® to where it is now. We would never have improved so much in such a short amount of time and grown as we did, had it not been for the help of our families, friends and an incredible team. Thank you all.’

– Friedrich Lange, Manager

TROBOLO - Lokal & nachhaltig gefertigt bei Hannover

A very important milestone for us was the successful FSC certification as there’s nothing that we care about more than offering a product which does not only function entirely without chemicals but which also originates from sustainable and controlled cultivation. What’s more, our distribution network was expanded bit by bit thanks to exclusively using internet distribution which is subject to the same unconditional quality standards as our production.

In a small, tranquil village called Hotteln in Lower Saxony, the first TROBOLO® headquarters was established and was moved to Lower Saxony’s capital Hannover in 2019 where it is based today.

‘The internet made us big and enabled us to offer the TROBOLO® at the best price possible without high stock quantities or large-scale distribution networks. We now continuously expand our hand-picked network of partners to guarantee extensive availability and a quick shipping of our products – at any time and anywhere in the market.’

– Sören, Media Planning

What makes us different?
We have a fantastic product.

TROBOLO® stands for TROckenBiOLOkus (‘dry eco loo’) and it lives up to its name. Each and every one of our systems is crafted from sustainable materials in our local workshop and functions hygienically, without the need for water and is 100 % free of chemicals, anywhere you want.

The news about this spread very quickly among allotment holders and other people who were searching the market for waterless toilet systems as sensible alternatives. The market’s positive reaction to our innovative urine-diverting toilets on such a large scale was unpredictable for us and our young founder and posed a new challenge for our team.

‘Suddenly we had to manage the production volume of a month within a week and the requests didn’t stop. It was stressful, but ultimately, this period brought the entire team together even more. Everyone is proud of what we achieved and of how well our product is received all over the world.’

– Sandra, Quality Management

We're commited to high-quality standards.
We believe in craftsmanship.

Words like ‘sustainable’ and ‘high-quality’ are easy to say. We didn’t just want to talk the talk, but we also wanted to walk the walk and thus decided to have our product crafted exclusively by a medium-sized workshop which can meet extremely high standards.

Thanks to the many positive messages that our customers send us, we are convinced that our determination not to compromise with regard to material and quality really paid off and are hence very proud of the joint success.

‘Initially, we were a bit doubtful as none of us could imagine the scale that this project would one day amount to. Since then, we’ve been producing almost exclusively for TROBOLO® and regard ourselves as a firm part of this incredibly motivated team.’
