WHAT IS A DRY TOILET
A dry toilet, otherwise known as a waterless toilet, is a toilet system that works without flushing water.
Simply speaking the dry toilet is just the frame and apparatus of a normal toilet combined with some kind of waste collection tank or reservoir.
These are most often used as port-a-potties, and in developing countries where you’ll find dry toilets hooked into entire septic tanks.
There are newer models of camping toilets coming out like the Laveo Dry Flush Toilet that is battery powered and uses sheets of aluminum to automatically wrap your waste and store it in the attached tank.
Your other option is a composting toilet which collects urine and solids in different compartments while composting the solid waste using proper composting materials.
The composting toilet is a little more labor intensive and heavier than the standard dry or camping toilet but is more environmentally friendly and the resulting compost can be placed back in the ground if you’re in the woods.
For campers who want to poop in a somewhat civilized manner, a dry toilet is a great add-on to your camping setup.
