GO FURTHER, STAY LONGER
By saving water and letting nature take care of the solids, composting toilets like Cuddy don’t need to be emptied as frequently as flushing a typical camping toilet. This means you can venture to more remote places and stay longer.

Cuddy can fit just about anywhere and go wherever – and whenever – you need to Go.
BEST TOILET FOR VANLIFE & OFF-GRID? YES.
Camping toilets often fall short, but not Cuddy. With the size of a tiny chemical toilet, Cuddy offers intelligent features.
It includes an independent 1.7gal/6.5L Liquids bottle and a separate 3.9gal/14.7L Solids bin, both easily removable.
Composting is effortless with the extending agitator handle, and a smart LED indicator signals when it's time to empty the liquids bottle. Built robust and durable, Cuddy is the top choice for off-grid living and travel.
WHAT ABOUT THE SMELL?
Composting toilets do not smell. They eliminate odors through two key processes: separating #1s and #2s to prevent sewage formation and composting #2s, reducing volume and moisture.
Additionally Cuddy features an internal fan and reusable carbon filter.
Unlike other camping toilets, external venting is optional, easily achieved with a standard pipe. And for the curious, a deep inhale reveals a forest floor-like scent, ensuring a pleasant experience.
THE INSTALL? EASY.
Got a drawer, bench, or bathroom in your space? Great; the hard part’s done. When Cuddy arrives in the mail, take it out of the box, remove all the packaging, unlock the solids bin, throw in some carbon-rich material (like peat moss, sawdust, or coco coir), connect it to power, insert a battery, press the carbon filter into place, wipe the seat clean, and you’re good to Go!

Composting Toilet FAQ
We often get asked this FAQ!
No, composting toilets do not smell when used properly. They will not stink out your van, boat, tiny home, camper, or cabin. The composted material looks and smells earthy—like a forest floor. When emptying the loo, there is no unpleasant odour, unless you’re one of those rare folks that don’t like forest floors.
Another common FAQ.
Yes, composting toilets need emptying but much less frequently than chemical toilets.
From our experience, composting toilets are much less unpleasant to empty than chemical toilets because they don’t have an unpleasant smell and the solids simply resemble dirt.
Always check the rules that apply to your specific location.
Usually, solids from composting toilets may be put in a biodegradable bag and disposed of in a regular rubbish bin. In general, the law permits disposal of human waste in this manner to due to the need to dispose of baby and adult diapers, as well as pet waste.
If you have a space to do so, you might consider continuing the composting process that Cuddy started. There are several resources for how to compost and use human manure. We like The Humanure Handbook as a starting point. Urine can also be used as a fertilizer—the Rich Earth Institute is a good resource about peecycling.
Our toilets are specially designed to make emptying as quick and easy as possible. The solids bin is simple to remove and empty, and liquids from composting toilets can be poured down a regular toilet or onto the nearest thirsty looking mature tree.
Yes, you can. Period blood and tissue is totally fine to go into a composting toilet, either in the liquids or solids bin. We do not recommend that you put pads or tampons in the bin. They will no break down like #2, will make the bin fill up faster and the agitator may be more difficult to turn.
Keep in mind that many composting toilet manufacturers have white, opaque liquids tanks to make it easier to see how much liquid is inside. However. when you have to walk through a campground carrying a full liquids bottle, everyone else can see what’s in the bottle, too. Cuddy™ has a non-see-through black liquids container that hides what’s inside. We incorporate a sensor that lights up an LED light to let you know when the bottle is ready to be emptied.
Not until it has fully finished composting which will take several months.
While composting toilets begin the composting process and reduce the volume of waste, the material needs additional time to kill off bacteria and parasites usually 6-12 months depending on how hot it gets.
it is safe to add the contents to your compost pile and let them continue composting.
Joseph Jenkins wrote the ‘humanure handbook’ and we would encourage any readers to refer to this as a reference.
Yes, you can pee in a composting toilet.
Our composting toilets are designed to separate the pee from the poop to eliminate any nasty odours.
Yes, you can put a composting toilet in an RV. It is a great way to save water, space and not deal with nasty chemicals.
The solids section of Cuddy™ composting toilet typically needs emptying every 2-4 weeks depending on how much it’s been used.
You can look into the chamber to check the level. We would advise emptying when the chamber is around two thirds to three quarters full.
The LED light will let you know when the liquids bin is ready to be emptied.
Dealing with diarrhea is straightforward: When the solids bin is too moist for any reason, the first step is to add more of your composting agent (coir or peat moss, etc.). This will help to get the contents back to the right moisture level.
Depending on your situation, you may have to empty the solids bin a little sooner or more often.
Collateral messes can be an issue with whatever toilet you use. You’ll want to clean your Cuddy following the directions in the manual—basically with a sponge or soft cloth and soapy water.
We don’t recommend this because food scraps will attract flies and other insects.
