Miki Agrawal’s Revolutionary Toilet: The Latest Mission for an Eco-Friendly World

Miki Agrawal is a woman who wears many hats. She is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and activist. Miki has come up with the idea to use human excrement as fuel in order to provide electricity and other resources to people in need. Miki Agrawal also wants this technology to be used here in the United States because it will help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and create jobs while we tackle climate change!

The eco-friendly toilet which Miki has named “Nano Membrane Toilet” is the newest creation of New York-based organization, Sanergy. The toilet’s features include waterless urinals and 95% less water usage than standard toilets. The toilets are currently available in Uganda and Ghana. Sanergy has facilitated the installation of over 500 of their self-cleaning toilets which they believe will bring sanitation to over 8 million people by 2018.

Miki Agrawal’s toilet was recently featured in a TedX Talk where she presented her idea to the world. Miki Agrawal has also been involved in another very interesting venture. For the last 8 years, Miki has been traveling around the world and engaging with many different cultures. During this time she met a lot of people who lived in poverty and got to hear their stories first hand.

During her travels, Miki noticed that women were constantly told to go into seclusion when they were on their period. Miki Agrawal realized that something had to change so she decided to help others by creating an affordable, sustainable way to manage periods. TUSHY is a company that provides you with a kit to make your own tampons from scratch! The kit includes 100% certified organic cotton, food-grade applicators, an eco-friendly storage container, and easy-to-read instructions.

TUSHY’s goal is to provide clean water and toilets to those in need. We hope that the Nano Membrane Toilet will continue bringing more resources, jobs, and a better life to developing countries! The project is still in its beginning stages but we will be sure to keep you updated on how it’s going.
