So since 2015 this toilet called the “tiger toilet” have been all the rage. It been popping up outside homes and schools around the country. Looking at the tiger from the outside it might seem like your normal everyday pit latrine but a closer look would show instead that it comes with a built-in population of tiger worms.
The toilets involve no traditional flushing and aren’t hooked up to a sewer system. Instead, the worms are contained in a container below the toilet, and they feast on feces. The creatures’ activity leaves behind a mix of water, carbon dioxide, and a small amount of wormy compost (that’s technically the worms’ poo, though it’s much less toxic and more nutrient-rich than ours).
awarded at least $4.8 million in grant money to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to perfect the technology . Tiger Toilets also received$170,000 for initial testing in India, Myanmar and Uganda from USAID. It was also gathered that bill gates told some crowd in beijing that he is willing and ready to spend an additional $20 million developing such tech that operate without mainframe sewer systems.
