The Loowatt Toilet/Energy system (already in use in Madagascar) strives to reduce the “waste” that our usual sanitation systems provide. It efficiently makes use of everything we get rid of to source energy to the population and make the world just a smidge greener than it was. Virginia Gardiner’s system (developed during her time as an art student) stands to be a solution to the inefficiencies that plague societies’ efforts to get rid of our own mess.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s in the bag with the Loowatt alternative to the flush toilet
  • “All toilets depend upon systems: servicing, processing, inputs and outputs.”
  • In the 21st century, everybody is downstream from somebody else.”

“It’s an interesting design that encapsulates each poop in a biodegradable film so that it isn’t messy and doesn’t smell.”
