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.
