Simple Composting Toilet Workshop

Posted by Loren Taylor Luyendyk over 7 years ago

June 2, 2012 at the Ojai Foundation, Ojai California. Spend the day learning the basics of ecological sanitation. We will construct a composting toilet from salvaged materials that saves water and produces valuable "humanure" for your landscape.

Waste is an unused resource, and our concept of “waste” creates pollution.  Every year, billions of gallons of untreated sewage spill into the ocean, as a result of no treatment, or treatment plant failures due to power outages and high storm flows.  Over 3 million people die each year from water borne illnesses caused by raw sewage entering water sources.


Furthermore, in the developed world we use drinking quality water to flush our feces “away” (=into the ocean).  The average American household would save up to 34,000 gallons of water per year if we stopped using flush toilets.

We can reduce and re-use our waste safely and in an economical and ecological way.  Composting red worms can reduce E. coli populations on contaminated materials up to 99.9%.  Thoroughly composted humanure is suitable for fertilizing ornamental and fruit trees.

Compost toilets save water, reduce pollution, and create healthy soils with no moving parts.  They are affordable and modular, suited to almost any climate or condition.

This one-day workshop will provide participants with the skills to build a Compost Toilet for home scale waste treatment.  We will cover the basics of Ecological Sanitation, and construct a toilet out of locally available materials.
