Sea to Summit Pocket Trowel
Previously known as the iPOOD, until some mysterious large multinational company complained about it...
The strongest, lightweight, compact camp trowel in the world. Poo with pride!
If no facilities are available, use the Sea To Summit iPOOd! to deposit solid human waste in a hole dug 10-15 cm deep and at least 100 metres from water-bodies, camp, tracks, and watercourses. To promote decomposition, choose a site in organic soil, rather than sandy mineral soil and in the sun rather than the shade.
Use the Sea To Summit iPOOd! to dig the hole, and gently remove a plug of sod containing roots and soil and carefully put it aside. After use, and before replacing the plug of sod, use a stick to mix some soil into the faeces to promote decomposition. The microbes found in the organic layer of soil will break down faeces and the pathogens they contain. In some locations the organic layer may be shallow or almost non-existent. Do your best to seek the most appropriate site. Replace the plug and disguise the hole by lightly tamping down around the edges. Then "naturalise" the site by scattering leaf litter and disguise it well after use.
