Composting loo

Recommended Posts

I've just watched "Its not easy being green" and was inspired to research composting loos. You can get ones that are completely self contained and don't need a big chamber underneath.


I've found one that will cost just over £600 which i think isn't bad so i may have a go at persuading OH. :pray:


We currently save water by using rainwater to flush the loo. However, we have a downstairs bathroom so can't really rig up a proper system so we collect the water from the water butt in buckets and flush with those. Needless to say, the buckets get hidden when visitors come! :oops:

We haven't watched this episode yet - but it's something we're interested in. We have an outside loo which we might tinker with........


Was it the ladies with the campsite? - last week they were looking at a brochuire with some lovely, coloured, toilets.

I'm thinking of having it instead of the loo in the bathroom, its self contained so doesn't take up anymore room than a normal loo.


Mind you, told OH the price this morning, don't think he was too impressed :roll:


I think i'll wait until he gets his bonus, we usually get something quite expensive each :wink:

:shock::lol: This bit really made me laugh....


Another simple option is a 'straw bale urinal'. This consists of a bale of straw (ends uppermost), for men to urinate on. The liquid soaks in and composts the middle of the bale in a few months.


Knowing how bad most mens' aim is... I had images of Helly with a bale of straw in her bathroom, with wee puddled round it!!



Ohh hooo, only on this forum.... :roll:
