From potty to potash

From potty to potash

Peepoo is a single-use, self-sanitising, biodegradable toilet bag. Thanks to its urea-based biochemical technology, the bag prevents faeces from contaminating the immediate area and then can eventually turn into valuable fertilizer.

Why it matters

Up to 50% of deaths in emergency and refugee camps are linked to a lack of basic sanitation and contaminated water from human excrements. While 40% of the world’s population lack access to even the simplest toilet,  this seems like an amazing temporary solution. But can the Peepoo become more than a temporary problem-solver?
