A revolutionary toilet is making waves the world over. Self-composting and requiring no drainage, the toilet already serves some 4 million people daily in India. What’s more, it is empowering the country’s poorest. Dr. Bindeswhar Phatak is the acclaimed head of the Sulabh Movement. His organization has provided public toilet facilities throughout India and stable jobs for 50,000 untouchables. The large profits made by the scheme go towards further educating and training the untouchable class. Now governments worldwide are queuing up to order the design that "reduces disease, improves health, and eliminates poverty."
