So what exactly is a composting toilet? Well in simple terms it's a toilet that doesn't use water and also makes something called compost. Compost is material that's been decomposed & recycled that can be used as fertilizer. So this toilet takes your excrement and turns it into fertilizer you can use for your garden.
This produces by far
the most natural fertilizer you'll ever find since no chemicals are
involved in its creation. So for a truly organic solution to fertilizer
it doesn't get any better than this. Normal composting can take up to a
year before its ready to be used. With a toilet setup you can have your
compost ready a lot faster.
So if you're thinking is this actually
safe for my garden then let me assure you that it is without a doubt as
long as you compost it properly. You must have this installed correctly
or this will be very anti-eco-friendly. Compost is the preferred
fertilizer for your yards and gardens. It is a very popular fertilizer
on farms where they have more time and require healthy fertilizers. The
only reason bottled fertilizers are popular is because they save on time
and it's cheap but with a proper compost setup you can get the best of
Now since they don't use water or require very little
you'll be saving on a ton of water. Your average toilet can use up to
2000 gallons a year and that's only counting if you live alone. If you
have a family you can see how that number would easily increase. Your
toilet is probably your 2nd biggest water user in your home. And with
our usable water supply slowly declining every year every ounce we can
save makes a huge difference.
Those are two awesome advantages you
can get from having a composting toilet in your home. Now these toilets
aren't exactly cheap and can cost up to $1000 right off the market but
the long-term investment will definitely pay off. Just think right now
how much you spend on natural or organic fertilizers. Those aren't
exactly cheap either and over the course of a few years you can see how
you'll save more money in the long term.
