Eco-Toilets

An eco-toilet is a toilet that uses either very little water or none at all, while recovering a majority of human “waste” nutrients. There are many kinds of eco-toilet systems— home-made ones as well as commercially available brands— and new, better systems are constantly being developed.

While conserving precious water, energy and material resources, eco-toilets recover nutrients essential for sustainable agricultural systems. As they become adopted on a wider scale, they may prove to be the best solution to turn the polluting liability of human waste into nature’s most important assets: clean water and nutrients.

New, commercial versions of composting toilet designs have recently been developed that are cheaper, smaller, more sanitary, and more user-friendly than older commercial models. We have tested variety of eco-toilet systems to come up with a design that we think is the best available on the market today. This Hybrid Urine-Diverting, Composting Eco-Toilet combines a urine-diverting toilet from Sweden with the most practical bin composting system from Vermont. The result is no water use, low energy, safe recovery of all nutrients. Please visit our sister site, the Cape Cod Eco-Toilet Center, to find out more.
