    and you make your own potty bucket.

    Just line the bucket with the trashbag, slip the slit pool noodle over the edge for a toilet seat and attach a roll of TP to the metal handle. Instant, Portable Potty with no fuss!

    This is wonderful for camping, long car trips where you don't necessarily want to use public restrooms (especially with little kids!), etc.

    What do you think?

    Awesomely different but very useful. I think I'll need to make for traveling with grandkids that hate to go in the woods. I'm thinking of putting a little cat litter in the bottom of the bag.

    A good tip we have used on our travels with a similar toilet. Have a container of garden lime beside the toilet. Cover waste with a sprinkling of the lime following each use. This helps break down the matter and reduces offensive odours dramatically.
    Bio degradable bags should be used as well to aid in disposal. Replace bag daily at least!

    OK, this is a silly idea...

    First, what are you going to do with the bag? You can't just dump it in the garbage, as that would be a potentially huge mess for someone, unsanitary, and I'd have to imagine illegal.

    Sure, you could dump it down your toilet, but only if it was a little bit.

    And yes you could put it in a pit toilet, but then what do you do with the bag?!

    It's a neat idea, until you have to figure out what to do with the results in a responsible way.

    Do what was done on Road Hogs, hang in a tree so the bears don't get it. Actually have to agree, can't put this in the garbage because of human waste. Best place to dump is in a outhouse and wash the bag out before depositing in the garbage.

    If you lose the bag and use sawdust or recycled newspaper litter (yesterdays news) than you create an ecofriendly, combustable travel potty.

    I like this idea, I may use one of these for my son's mancave, will mostlikely use the kitty litter and some dodorizer, to keep it from smelling so much.
    But it would definately need to be chaned often!

    The best way to control odor on these things is to add kitty litter to the bottom - sometimes we make multiple bags - so bag with litter, on top of bag with litter, etc and make quite a few - so once you need to dump, you just pull out and throw away (like you would with dog or cat poop) - its baged and fairly odorless - you can add lime too...

    take a bag of peat moss and toss a scoop of it over your deposit and it will help keep bugs away too.

    This is a great alternative to a marine porta potty, in a boat or RV, or to the wooden Humanure toilet, for those with less space. I really like the addition of the pool noodle - cheap, comfy, and easily replaced when needed.

    For more on the Humanure toilet, and why it is a fabulous idea, check out this link:
    The Humanure Handbook - Basic instructions for using a humanure toilet.

    The Humanure toilet uses plain sawdust to cover the waste and control odors, which can be composted over time and used to fertilize trees and other non-food plants, but takes a full season for the waste to be fully composted.

    A better solution might be to cover the waste with bokashi, which would pickle it in six weeks or less, which then could either be further composted and act as a booster to a regular compost pile, fed to earthworms (which LOVE bokashi), or placed directly into the planting hole for shrubs and trees, which take off when planted in bokashi.

    The additional advantage of bokashi is, because of its vastly greater bacterial activity over plain sawdust, not only does it break down the waste much faster, but any harmful bacteria are overwhelmed by the good bacteria much more quickly. Bokashi is traditionally used to compost kitchen garbage, and can be used not only for vegetable waste, but also for fish, eggs, meat and bones, which cannot be composted in a regular compost pile without first using bokashi, as they will draw flies, rats and mice, not to mention stinking to high heaven.

    Bokashi is what I will be using in my own Humanure toilet.
