Everybody has to shit, but in our culture and economy, human waste is nothing but a liability and potential health hazard. And what’s crazier is that we mix it with our drinking water and create an even bigger problem.
Well, at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, we don’t have elaborate plumbing and water systems to cart all our human waste away to be treated in a plant or dumped directly into the local river or ocean. We keep all our human waste on site, where it becomes a benign yet beneficial resource for agriculture. We not only save millions in infrastructure expenses, but we save water, we don’t pollute our drinking water, and we end up with a valuable soil amendment.
