Excreta disposer / product design

Excreta disposer
Excreta disposer

After a disaster like hurricane, flood or earthquake, surface water is always polluted by human excreta which lead infections spread. “Excreta disposer” is a personal product design for collection of human excreta. It can seal up refugees’ excreta avoiding direct contact to surface water. In this way, we can concentrate and move this public waste conveniently. Furthermore, all materials involved are very common. And this product is so simple that can be produced easily. As a result, a large amount of “excreta disposer” can be distributed to refugees as soon as disaster happens.
