Aude. In Couiza, Julien Boyer has been making dry toilets… for ten years.
The small company created by Julien Boyer in Couiza (Aude) has reached one million euros in sales… and the order book is full.
Thousands of hotels, campsites and B&Bs, as well as a few palaces, are embarking on their “ecological transition”. More and more establishments are displaying green labels: ecolabel, clef verte… What do these establishments offer? Selective sorting, local breakfasts, compost, and even… dry toilets…
And here’s one that an entrepreneur lost in a small corner of the Aude, in Couiza, and that nobody took seriously 10 years ago… is today booming. So much so that it attracted the attention of M6’s “Capital” program, which will broadcast a report on its activity on Sunday August 7, 2022 at 9:00 pm.
Gepetto of the dry toilet
It features Julien Boyer, presented as the Gepetto of the dry toilet. After training as a carpenter, Julien set up his own dry toilet business, Lécopot, at a time when nobody believed in dry toilets. Since then, he estimates that he has delivered to more than 10,000 users… and that’s far from the end of it!
950,000 euros in annual sales
Demand is growing by 15% to 20% every year, and more and more eco-friendly tourist accommodations are turning to him for help, so the order book is overflowing. The company has almost reached sales of one million euros by 2021… and the entrepreneur still doesn’t take himself too seriously!
If we’re relaying this article, it’s because of its position: Dry toilets work, both in terms of their excrement management system, and in terms of popularity – you can even support a dozen people with them. .
