Sago Dry Toilet
Access to a safe toilet is an essential human right however in Papua New Guinea, 65% of people are without access to a safe toilet and 13% of Papua New Guineans don’t have a toilet at all. We teamed up with Sago Network to help tell their story, making it relevant to Australian audiences (the more relevant, the more dollar bills to support the project!).
The Sago Dry Toilet is an above ground, waterless latrine that dries out waste, making a sand-like output that is safe to dispose of. Unlike a conventional toilet, the system is lightweight and transportable via canoe, banana boat or car, and will last approximately 15-20 years.
