Humanure

Human waste is often overlooked as a very valuable commodity. It can be composted to make a rich soil for your garden and trees, or used by decomposers such as Black Soldier Flies and earthworms.

Human manure composts just as well as animal manure. It is a valuable commodity, not something to be flushed away with clean water.

Making your own composting toilet is easy, elegant and requires no plumbing. You can design it however you like, so long as it remains practical.

If you are building your bathroom from scratch, you can easily install a solar air vent from the toilet to the outside. The sun will do the work of an extractor fan.
