Evaluation program: Declare

Declare labels are issued to products disclosing ingredient inventory, sourcing and end of life options. Declare labels are based on the Manufacturers Guide to Declare, administered by the International Living Future Institute.

How it works

Material ingredients are inventoried and screened against the Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List which represents the ‘worst in class’ materials, chemicals, and elements known to pose serious risks to human health and the greater ecosystem.

How this rating was achieved

Declare level

‘Living Building Challenge Compliant’ is achieved when the product contains Red List ingredients that have been given a temporary exception by the Living Building Challenge due to current market limitations.

What's in the product and why

Manufacturing in the United States means that robust human labor, safety and environmental rules and regulations were followed. Local sourcing of raw materials means that less smog and air pollution are generated as a result of transport. The ceramic body and glaze makes up ~92-93% of the total mass of the toilet. Therefore, manufacturing and transportation of the ceramic create the greatest human health impacts when compared to the overall manufacture of the entire toilet. By specifying a Drake II toilet manufactured in the United States, the consumer helps mitigate these human health impacts.

Red List materials

The toilet trip lever handle is plated with chrome (Hexavalent Chromium VI). Chromium material is used as a decorative finish in applications where corrosion-resistance and durability are required. During the chrome plating process health hazards have been identified and are managed according the OHSA Guidelines. Process controls are used to protect the environment and the production workers wear personal protection equipment. After the plating process the chrome surface is inert and does not pose any health risks. The trip lever in the final form does not represent any hazards to the user. TOTO continues to investigate alternative finishes in order to reduce and/or eliminate Chromium VI on the toilet trip levers.

Where it goes at the end of its life

TOTO encourages consumers to recycle their used toilet and toilet parts. Contact your local municipality for recycling programs.

How we're making it healthier

PVC-Free versions of the Drake II do not use parts containing PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). The manufacture of PVC requires vinyl chloride, as well as other chemicals such as plasticizers and phthalates, which give the material an elastomeric or rubber-like characteristic. The primary health concern is during the production process when the raw material components are in a powder or pelletized form. If inhaled or ingested the results can be toxic and potentially carcinogenic. In the final form, materials are inert and not a hazard to the users of the toilet.

As part of TOTO’s efforts to reduce health impacts, PVC parts have been removed and replaced with materials of compatible functional strength and chemical resistance. Additionally, these parts are sourced within the continental United States. While there are no legislative or regulatory mandates to remove this material from a product, as part of our goal to mitigate adverse health impacts, TOTO has moved beyond compliance by voluntarily eliminating this compound.

Goals and plans for improvement:

  • Utilize alternative materials to PVC, removing this compound from tank parts in all TOTO models.
  • With no compromise to beauty, functionality or durability, TOTO intends to offer alternative finishes for trip levers that do not require Chromium VI.
