Singapore aims to redefine its bog standards
Whether gleaming or grimy, Singapore’s public toilets face the scrub brush of scrutiny in an online map and feedback forum announced yesterday.
LOO Connect, a new part of the Restroom Association of Singapore’s toilet.org.sg website, lets the public pinpoint and comment on facilities and see those given three, four or five stars under the Happy Toilet Programme that has run since 2003.
“It’s a crowd sourcing tool to help people identify the most disgusting toilets and the cleanest ones,” said Emerson Hee, the association’s general manager.
Mr Hee said the association will work to improve conditions at places where toilets are shamed by residents of the wealthy Asian city-state, whose government runs regular campaigns to promote cleanliness, courtesy and good English.
Singapore’s foulest toilets tend to be in coffee shops, bus terminals and food courts, the association found.
