CompoCloset Cuddy Composting Toilet Review
Both Cuddy's sleek design and compact footprint are perfect for your tiny space. They are both dry toilets which means they save water and do not require a black tank.
Cuddy™ is a composting toilet with an agitator that helps kick start the composting process. It is perfect if you want to stay off-grid longer. With up to 25 #2s you'll appreciate the time saved empty less often offers you.
Cuddy™ Lite uses the layering system. You'll start out with a bag inside the soilds bin and after each #2 you'll add a bit of composting agent to cover it.
The bag system works well for even quicker emptying. It is also good if you are renting your van or sharing the toilet with other non-family members.
