Dating back to 1958, the organization is “committed to promoting the importance of design to business, industry, government and the general public and the critical role it plays in creating a better, safer and more prosperous world as the key to increasing social well-being and prosperity through empathy and insight, “ according to the Good Design Awards background information.
“Congratulations to Cinderella Eco Group”, writes General Manager Rachel Wye of Good Design Australia upon announcing the awards, “this is a significant achievement and one you should be very proud of considering the very high caliber of submissions received this year across the 10 main design disciplines and 28 sub-categories.”
Winning Good Design Awards in two categories, Best Engineering Design and Best Product Design, Home and Building, is an honor that places Cinderella Eco Group among the leading providers of sustainably designed products and services on the Australian market, among key drivers of innovation, economic growth, export and productivity and an essential link between creativity, innovation and commercial success.

“Cinderella’s incineration technology represents an innovative, waterless waste-handling process that has met global attention from areas of the world totally lacking in sewage systems and where water is a threatened resource, to the leisure home owner looking to find comfortable, hygienic solutions for isolated areas close to nature without leaving any ecological footprint,” explains Anette Helleren, Cinderella’s dealer at Retrolooms in Victoria. ”The Cinderella Incineration Toilet is ideal for the Australian market and we’re very excited that they have won this prestigious award.”
“We are presenting the Cinderella Incineration Toilet in many arenas,” Mr Trent Bitchel of AKT Mobile Systems, Cinderella’s dealer in Queensland confirms “There is a large potential for use in the site welfare industry where hundreds of buildings are being built in areas without sewage and where this is currently being transported by road. “

Hocking at the head office of Cinderella Eco Australia Pty Ltd in Sydney agrees, “We look forward to sharing the knowledge and expertise from Cinderella’s 20 years of experience in the Nordic region, Europe and Canada in delighting Australian consumers and making a significant difference to people’s lives.
