New Green Product Aims to Save Lives

Check out this great new green innovation that aims to give everyone access to clean toilet facilities.

“Some 2.5 billion people—more than a third of the world’s population—lack clean toilet facilities. Such poor sanitation causes diarrhea, which kills 800,000 children each year. A Caltech team led by Michael Hoffmann, a professor of environmental science, is creating a new toilet to solve the problem. This design, which recently won a grant from the Gates Foundation, costs less than a nickel per person per day to run, while requiring minimal maintenance.”
