intro’d to pee poople at bif 8..
Peepoople was formed to develop, produce and distribute the Peepoo. The mission of Peepoople is that all people who so desire shall have access to dignified and hygienic sanitation. Peepoople AB was founded in 2006 and is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Peepoople’s long-term goal is to provide 150 million people daily with sanitation.
Peepoople will build a network of organisations that work under the Peepoople brand and strive towards the same goal. Peepoople currently consists of: Peepoople AB in Stockholm, Sweden and Peepoople Kenya in Nairobi, Kenya.
a personal single use toilet in the form of a small bag that’s easy to carry, easy to use.
small toilet acts as a micro treatment plant, that sanitizes human excretia shortly after defiication thereby preventing feces from contaminating the environment.
also made of degradable bio-plastic, and since all pathogens are inactivated feces turn into valuable fertilizer, with a high market value. requires no infrastructure, no investment costs.

The toilet of the future is made of mushrooms https://t.co/BRozrD0cdE (http://twitter.com/changeist/status/1010450589698777089?s=17)
designed the toilet specifically for refugee camps, where there’s a lack of water and existing sanitation solutions–namely, portable toilets–are expensive to maintain. Because of the smell, the toilets are often placed in a single central location away from living quarters, but that makes them unsafe for women and children to visit at night
when it’s full, the toilet is buried in the ground or left somewhere out of the way for another 30 days to allow the composting process–aided by the mushroom spores–to finish. Each toilet includes local seeds, which can be planted on top of the toilet, allowing plants or crops to grow from the human waste
go smaller.. go peepoople.. less smell et al
