Juvenile reader alert: Rachel Swaby from Gizmodo.com has a fun post today about toilets. The best part about "Why Toilets Are Still Made of Porcelain" is that there's a plastics angle. The post cites Brian Hedlund, Kohler Co.'s senior product manager for toilets, as the expert on material selection.
