The Best Toilet in The USA.

In our extensive experience testing outdoor toilets, we’ve never had a more satisfying poop than the one achieved on this wooden throne in the Cascade Mountains. The view, as you can see, is stunning, but the toilet’s location also shelters it from the wind, basks it in the warm rays of the sun, and offers near complete privacy, thanks to its perch well off the main hiking trail. The combination, we feel, makes it the single greatest toilet in the country. 

What Makes Your Poop Possible

Located above 6,000 feet on the east-facing slopes of McClellan Peak, this particular toilet is made possible by the hard work of the Leavenworth Climbing Rangers and the United States Forest Service. Each year, they use helicopters to ferry full tanks down the mountains, where they’re pumped into a sewage processing facility. The network of 40-plus vault toilets located through the Enchantment Basin is one of the main reasons the area remains so pristine.

Wal-Mart and P&G: A $10 Billion Marriage Under Strain

As both companies face stalling growth, the big-box retailer challenges the consumer-products giant with more store brands, lower prices and less shelf space

Last year, executives at Procter & Gamble Co. were alarmed when Wal-Mart Stores Inc. stocked a European competitor right next to the company’s iconic Tide detergent. It was a barb for the consumer-products giant, which has long considered Wal-Mart’s shelves to be its most valuable retail real-estate.

Although Wal-Mart’s sales rose by nearly 1% in the quarter ended April 30, the company’s annual revenue fell last year for the first time since it went public in 1970. It also closed 154 U.S. stores en masse earlier this year, another company first.

P&G, meanwhile, hasn’t created a blockbuster product with $1 billion in annual sales since 2005. Overall annual sales growth has been stagnant since the recession, hitting a four-year low of $70.7 billion in 2015. The company has also cut more than 20,000 jobs since 2012.

Are you battling your competition for sales? I would guess yes and Bullen can help. BYOB (Be Your Own Brand) means what you sell can't me stolen over price, it is your brand.
