Sanitation Creations is developing the Dungaroo: an odorless, waterless, hygienic and cost efficient portable toilet aiming to solve a worldwide sanitation crisis. Two billion people are without proper toilets, leading to sickness and death. The Dungaroo, which will begin consumer trials shortly, looks to alleviate both issues by providing an economical and sanitary option to places without toilets.
