A what-kind-of toilet, you might ask? A composting toilet is an indoor toilet facility that processes human waste into a usable soil amendment. No odor is produced during the processing or in the final product. Composting toilets require no water and so are especially useful where water is unavailable or in limited supply.

So, the question is, do you have a composting toilet? If you do, what do you think of it? If not, would you consider installing one at your house? Post your answer in the comments section below.
