Open defecation due to lack of adequate sanitation as addressed by the 2.5 billion people with poor sanitation and/or unhygienic Toilets (BoP - Bottom of the Pyramid), leading to water / groundwater / water resource contamination, global water crises and water-borne diseases affecting lives of millions, and preventing the poor to come out of the poverty cycle (as per survey, a person living in an open defecation or a pit latrine area, unknowingly consumes 10 grams of fecal content every day, causing 80% of diseases) 2. Untreated sewage from individual septic tanks and sewage treatment plants dumped in the ocean/rivers affecting lives underwater 3. Water and energy shortage 4. Food security and quality caused by chemical fertilizer ECOLOO sustainable eco-social innovation enclosed toilet system as an ultimate solution is odorless, waterless (water is used for washing and hygiene purposes), decentralized, sewage free, energy-free and maintenance-free.
