Like most of us in the world right now, we’re thinking about things that are bigger than ourselves. COVID, community, the climate, etc. These are all large problems that require a global approach to solutions. Whilst it may seem daunting that such large problems are part of our lives, we can all take ownership and control over the areas of our lives we can influence. One of the easiest ways to help, not only yourself, but the environment around you is to think about how you can incorporate a more sustainable approach into your lifestyle and one of the easiest ways to do this is with a sustainable toilet.
What is a sustainable toilet?
If we are to look up the definition of sustainable the Cambridge dictionary defines it as:-
causing little or no damage to the environment and therefore able to continue for a long time
So using this definition, a composting toilet is definitely one of the most sustainable types of toilets you can have in your home. Why? Well, let’s take a look at some of the environmental benefits of a composting toilet.
- They save the average family over 35,000L of water a year
- They don’t use any harsh chemicals
- They can be hooked up to a sustainable power system (solar)
- You create a usable product (compost)
- They take up very little space (great for tiny homes)
- They remove your reliance on being connected to the grid
- They don’t pollute waterways and the ocean
- They have very little ongoing costs
