  • BecoPotty, £9.95

    The BecoPotty is an eco-friendly potty that's made from waste plant material. It will last for years while it's in your home, but as soon as you pop it in your garden it will start to biodegrade.

    Ergonomically designed to be comfortable and easy to use, the BecoPotty starts life as bamboo waste and rice husks, which are leftover materials from farming. This clever creation is not only kind on your baby, it's also kind to the environment.
