Having the answer to the problem by inventing a composting toilet & then charging $1600 to buy it is beyond disrespectful. Let's just say every way of thinking could use a little tweeking.It's not the first time a great idea went down the tube because of cost or marketing or public opinion.Snagging an unwrapped bag of you know what is just as bad as sniffing a rose only to find it was cultivated in human excrement.Put a fancy name on it 'bio-degraded' & people will line up for miles to smell the delicate scent.Stay positive please.All the world's problems will not be solved,at least not tonight.Camp on.
Maybe I can save the planet! BIO BAG is a 100 percent bio-degradable plastic bag made from corn.One application is as a toilet liner approved for THE SWISS ARMY ! Take a (restroom) break an check out this product.I hope it doesn't cost $1600.I have a swiss army knife,maybe a matching toilet too in the near future.
Sorry, didn't mean to get everyone up in arms about the plastic bag method.
It was something I had to do one time only when the flush mechanism quit on my toilet and as there were no facilities anywhere, it was the first thing that came to mind. Plus I brought the bag home with me, flushed the residue into the toilet and the bag went in my fire pit...
Carry this 100% environmentally friendly toilet system with you to the campsite to leave it as clean as when you first arrived. The collapsible frame is constructed of lightweight, yet durable high-impact plastic and can support up to 250 lbs.
The completely biodegradable, 100% compostable waste bags fit snugly over any standard, oval-shaped toilet seat and overlaps the rim for a completely sanitary surface every time you sit down. This means that you can use these nature friendly bags with just about any similar style outdoor toilet on the market. No other bags can boast the biodegradable qualities that these bags have. When buried or disposed of in an approved waste receptacle, the bags break down quickly, preventing damage to the environment or waste-disposal units. Additional Biodegradable Waste Bags are also available. Available: Bio Toilet.
Waste Bags (per 24).
Here we go, I checked out the Bio Bag site and they have these biodegradable bags for people, dogs and cat litter boxes. $12.99 for people sized.
Just for those times when timing and range from facilities do not correspond....

Sixteen hundred dollars would be pretty high indeed. As I recall, sixteen hundred is about what a boyfriend paid for his first VCR. This is one problem with new technology and ideas. It's usually quite high for the first generation or two and then prices start plunging to the level just about everyone can afford. Last time I checked a VCR sold for around forty bucks.
