Ecological Sanitation

Eco-ecological sanitation is based on a method of capturing nutrients, preventing water pollution and utilizing energy from human waste. Currently, we have implemented Urine Diverting toilets in our projects. A method which separates urine and feces to produce a fertilizer used on crops. As these toilets are not the norm being used in many cultures we pay particular attention to educating the communities we work in on how to construct, maintain and effectively use our toilets.
