The Green Arrow Solution is a portable toilet designed for use in the Third World. The toilet is meant to improve the health of those living in the world’s slums by giving them a place to do their business away from human habitation.
The Green Arrow Solution was designed by Cesar Viramontes and gets its unique name from an old Indian custom of throwing an arrow away from a village to find a proper spot to go to the bathroom. The Green Arrow Solution is a small drum that comes with a biodegradable lining that keeps the toilet tank clean. This lining ensures that cleaning of the actual drum is kept to a minimal, which is good as a lot of slums don’t have clean water readily available in large quantities. Viramontes' design would be an inexpensive way to improve the health and the quality of life in the Third World.
