Product Overview

Most people in rural Africa do not have access to safe toilets, and their health and well-being suffers as a consequence. There is an urgent need for the construction of simple, low-cost, affordable toilets that are easy to build and maintain."Toilets That Make Compost" provides practical examples of toilets that, in addition to providing a safe sanitation option, also recycle the nutrients in excreta to produce compost. This compost is valued wherever households have enough space to grow fruit and vegetables in their back gardens; the designs are suitable for regions where there is no high water table or prolonged wet season. This book provides detailed instructions for constructing a range of toilets from the simplest and most affordable to the more sophisticated ecological toilet.
