One of our most popular articles in Issue 2 of Pip is our piece on composting loos, “Waterless Composting Toilets” [PDF]. In fact, we were really chuffed to hear from Jan and Nat from Designful Studio, a sustainable building design firm in Hobart, Tasmania, who liked it so much they said on Instagram, it’s a “very handy resource… [looking] forward to referring it to [our] clients who want to embrace composting”. Thanks guys, it means a lot that you want to spread the word of our work, and that you’re enthusiastic about composting human poo!
Another big thanks goes to Kym Mogridge who kindly and expertly wrote the piece. Kym is the owner of Adobe Loos & Worms, in Bega, and has a proverbial humanure (ha, see what I did there?) load of experience in the waste management industry.
We think it’s an important article for anybody wanting to take their poo seriously, so that’s why we are making it available, for free, to reference and enjoy and SHARE. Below is the handy chart that shows you the main composting toilet units – batch cycle, continuous cycle, and hybrid varieties – available on the market and how they sit with regards to the Australian Standards. Rough prices, too.
Final thanks goes to our awesome supporters in Nature Loo / Ecoflo Wastewater Management and Clivus Multrum – who make some of the best composting toilets available in Australia. Their products can be seen in the chart below. Two other brands of composting toilet worth considering are Separett and Airhead (good names, huh?) distributed through A Better Way To Go.
