A Portable Toilet for Hikers

| May-June 1999

Copenhagen designer Louise Christ Frederiksen grabbed top honors at the first Patagonia International Design Competition with her Trekking Toilet, a portable potty designed for ecofriendly hikers who prefer to leave nothing behind. The toilet attaches to the hips with twin prongs, according to Metropolis (Jan. 1999), and a disposable waterproof bag collects, uh, that which your body can no longer use.
