You can also find a more detailed discussion on the best cover materials for your compost toilet in this article.
Please note that ‘The Little House Company’ and ‘Eco-Loo’ are no longer making compost toilets. If you’re looking for a compact compost toilet, we recommend the Air Head which can be purchased through WooWoo Waterless Toilets in the UK and Ireland.
