The Night Loo invention provides a safer toilet for women and girls living in refugee camps.
Refugee camps can be dangerous places, and many women feel too afraid to even leave their tents at night to go to the bathroom.
With that in mind, Anna Meddaugh of the ArtCenter College of Design created the Night Loo, a portable, sanitary personal urinal that women can use in the safety of their own tent. The Night Loo is made of injection molded silicon with flaps that open to catch splashes and fold shut after use. A small packet of super-absorbent polymer is added to the liquid waste, turning it to an odorless powder that can be transported for disposal during daylight hours.
