The ecological toilet of the future: Tove Larsen at TEDxLausanne

http://www.tedxlausanne.org - Being able to use a clean toilet whenever we need it is still a privilege in today's world. Billions of people still do not have access to sanitary facilities. But even in developed cities, the high water consumption of our toilets is becoming more and more of a problem. Tove Larsen from Eawag http://www.eawag.ch, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, works on the toilet of the future, a toilet that one day may very well be present in every home. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
