Plantoilet

This is an environmentally friendly toilet designed for people without toilets in third world countries. Such toilets are easy to transport and assemble. It comes with a replaceable and degradable feces tank that can hold the feces of a family of five for one month. Use thatch, sawdust, dead leaves and other readily available organics to help ferment and remove odors. After use, bury the box. After six months of fermentation, it turned into fertilizer, and the seeds on the box sprouted and grew.
