Latest Idea for No Impact Man: The Gotta Go Briefcase


While reading up for our post on No Impact Man it occurred to us that while he is not using toilet paper, it appears that he is using the toilet, which is certainly creating waste and having an impact. Clearly he needs a composting toilet in his apartment (the condo board won't mind, will they?) and Michelle should carry this wonderful new briefcase from Japan to work everyday on her scooter, for transfer to the composter when she gets home.

"In today’s fast paced corporate market, every minute counts and often can be the difference between success and failure. No longer is it feasible or convenient to take time out for toilet breaks, especially in taxis, subways or rail systems where facilities aren’t always provided. Now, there is the Gotta Go Briefcase. A full functioning briefcase that also doubles as a portable lavatory." American Inventorspot via ::trendhunter

"Top Japanese business professionals participated in extensive market research in ways to better maximize time efficiency and encourage higher job performance. As a result, Niban Too Corp. of Japan came up with the Gotta Go Briefcase for an extra edge over corporate competitors.

The water proof briefcase retains an elegant yet durable appearance with high quality Mahogany leather, a strong lightweight aluminum internal structure, and stainless steel bowl with generously equipped sealing lid. Quietly and discreetly go about your personal "business" anywhere you please with a fold out leather privacy panel which tucks away neatly to the side when you have completed your multi-tasking. A toilet paper dispenser easily swings out and can be conveniently stored in an inconspicuous storage compartment under the padding [for added discretion] when not in use.

Included with the Gotta Go Briefcase are a small tray with cup holder (clips onto the privacy panel), attachable vanity mirror, and refillable hand sanitizing dispenser. The newspaper and air freshener are not included but recommended.

*Maximum weight capacity is 80 Kilos (approx.175 lbs.). Exceeding the recommended weight will void all warranties and may result in rupture of waste tank, possible bacterial contamination of briefcase contents, and massive stench."
