The Pot Up_Pop Up composting toilet is just that: a toilet used for composting. Although it might take a moment to really wrap your mind around it, this concept could change the way we view our waste forever. As the world bands together to find more ways to lead eco-conscious lifestyles so as to help keep our planet as healthy as possible -- perhaps even reversing some of the damage we have already done -- designers have becoming quite innovative.

The Pot Up_Pop Up composting toilet, designed by Vera Wiedermann, travels back to a time when humans used outhouses more regularly. It requires using the composter directly as a regular toilet. Although that might seem hard enough, the next step of letting it sit for six months may be harder. Nevertheless, one's garden will be better for it.
