These eco-friendly latrines use a compost system rather than chemicals to store away and reuse waste at outdoor events both large and small.

Created by Australian company 'Natural Event,' these latrines work by separating urine from solid waste before treatment and send "waste streams into onsite composting and worm farms." The process does not require water, uses no chemicals or energy and is very friendly to the environment overall. Due to their use of sawdust and separation of liquid and solid, these composting latrines do not smell as other standard festival outhouses often do.

These latrines are flat-packed which makes them easily portable from location to location and with the rise of outdoor music festivals in the summer months, they are an eco-friendly alternative to commonly used plastic latrines.
