Frijol, Colombia: The “loveable loo” was invented by Joseph Jenkins. We have investigated many types of composting latrines and we liked this one because:
It saves water
It is affordable to build and maintain
It can be easily built with local labor and materials
It is clean and an odor free solution when maintained properly
It is positive for the environment
It is important to note that there are many good solutions for latrines. There is not one “perfect” latrine solution for all communities. It all depends on the needs and materials locally available in the community as well as culture and traditions.
