Helping the environment is the most important reason to use a dry toilet; what is currently an extremely wasteful and water consuming method of disposal of toilet waste can be turned into a tidy, dry and very valuable resource. Something like 15,000 litres of good, treated drinking water per household go to waste each year. To save the solid waste it can be covered with my completely new biomix, ‘LooFibre’, which sequesters carbon, and prevents leaching of nutrients from soil. Liners can be used in the bucket for ease of maintenance and then the bag can be placed in an open compost bin for five months before application to the soil.

If you are planting trees then the compost is ideal to use as a mulch around the newly planted tree.

A dispenser is currently being developed a to make application easy.
