"A few decades ago it was acceptable to pee in the hedge but times have changed," said Bethan Stagg, co-ordinator of the organisation, which is funded by a £500,000 grant from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. Only a dozen allotments in the UK host plumbing-free loos, which cost around £700. The waste they collect is particularly suitable for nurturing fruit trees, said Stagg.
