A composting toilet is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional flush toilets that relies on the natural decomposition of waste to create compost. It provides a safe and hygienic way to manage human waste while minimizing water consumption and nutrient pollution. Composting toilets are especially valuable in remote areas, off-grid locations, and environmentally sensitive regions where water supply and waste treatment facilities are limited. Be aware that these types of toilets have no odor when used correctly.
