Earthquake Express NOT behind new portable toilets


Rangiora Earthquake Express NOT behind new portable toilets

In the last 24 hours it has been reported by some media that the Rangiora Earthquake Express is now producing portable bucket toilets for earthquake stricken residents of Christchurch.

This is not correct.

While we, the Rangiora Earthquake Express, wish the organizers of this endeavor the very best of luck, we feel that it is important to clarify that this project is NOT a work of the Rangiora Earthquake Express, and that the group manufacturing these devices are a totally separate organization from the Rangiora Earthquake Express.
