1000 Flowers for the Planet - #568 Instal a Composting Toilet
Imagine if you could save 35,000 litres of water per year. That would be a tremendous saving, not only for you and your finances, but for the environment too. That’s how much water a composting loo can save. Composting toilets have come a long way. They are stylish, simple to install, odourless and easy to clean. On top of that, they only require about an hour of maintenance per year. Hands down they beat the old septic tank in so many ways. As well as using far less water than conventional toilets, a composting toilet is better for the environment because it doesn’t use any chemicals, unlike both septic and sewage systems which both use chemicals to treat the waste. Next time you need to instal a new toilet, investigate the possibilities of a composting loo and you’ll find heaps of benefits – another good tip for looking after the planet.
