Waste Not Waste
EcosanitationStreaming Video - 2009
Flush toilets are one way to deal with human waste-but they themselves are wasteful, as clean water and nutrient-rich biological matter are allowed to simply go down the drain. This earthy but informative program addresses the benefits of the dry toilet and waterless urinal, ecosanitation devices that collect human waste for use as compost and fertilizer. Ideal for regions where conventional sewage systems are unavailable, impractical, or outright impossible, dry toilets and waterless urinals have the potential to bring sustainable sanitation to billions in both developing and developed nations-and improve the environment in the process. The use of gray water in conventional flush toilets is also presented.
