How Compost Toilets Work- Have you ever thought about how much water we could save if there was a way to get rid of waste without water? Surprise, surprise, this is already a reality. While there are a variety of dry toilets on the market, compost toilets offer benefits for both global and local environments.
Progress friends! Our composting toilet enclosure made of recycled pallets. We just added a rain gutter plumbed to the green barrel. The bung in the bottom will be tapped into the sink fawcet inside the enclosure. Greywater from the sink will water a flowerbed around the privy. TWO human uses of rainwater before returning it to the soil. LOVE IT!
"Reader Roundup: DIY Composting Toilets" You don’t need to purchase a commercial composting toilet to safely recycle human waste. A simple setup of a bucket, seat and sawdust will do. We asked members of our online community about their experiences with DIY toilet setups, as well as any building or sanitation codes they had to follow. Their consensus? This natural method is unexpectedly inoffensive, and it saves water to boot. From MOTHER EARTH NEWS Magazine
