Sh*t Happens

Yes, pets mess up the lawns, driveways, hallways…almost everywhere. And all we can think of doing is getting rid of the dump asap. If we take a step back and look at the alternative then the ‘Convertor of Pet Waste’ doesn’t sound like a bad option. The device basically converts the pet’s dump into a useful biological fertilizer.

Convertor of Pet Waste is a pet faeces collector that uses infrared induction and a ‘Cybernation Tech Biofertiliser’ (CTB) system to distinguish and intelligently collect the pet faeces, and then convert it (with the help of a catalyst) into rich fertilizer.

Convertor of Pet Waste is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.

    It’s a huge misconception that dog waste can be used as fertilizer. Unlike fertilizer from cow or horse manure where their diets come primarily from plant matter; dog’s are carnivores, leaving their dog waste unsuitable for healthy fertilizer. Another thing worth mentioning is that dog waste contributes to 24% of suburban and urban water pollution in most area’s.
