Peepoo bio bags being used in slums of Kenya

Anne Nudge is a Sales Representative for Peepoople AB, a Swedish social enterprise that, last October, launched a pilot project in Silanga, marketing and selling “The Peepoo“– a single-use, personal toilet that sanitizes human waste quickly, preventing it from contaminating the surrounding environment. After just a few weeks, the bag transforms the waste into a nutrient-rich fertilizer.

The bags sell for 3 shillings and users get a refund of one shilling when returning them to a central drop off. This is far better than residents using open toilets or tossing bags into the street.
