Our composting toilets are not only great for the environment but they are as beautiful on the outside as they are inside . Hand crafted units , with hand made toilets. All our loo's are made from sustainable sources - to be even more eco friendly we can also provide you with our range of toilet products such as bamboo toilet rolls .
The age old question: "Where does the poo go?"
Humans, like our not-so-distant livestock relatives, are magnificent creatures who literally produce tonnes of rich and nutritious fertilizer every day (As a collective species that is, not as individuals- that would be horrific).
Our handy 220L composting bin can be positioned somewhere out-of-sight and out-of-smell, providing an eco-friendly solution. It comes complete with a starter sack of compost, to help introduce the necessary bacteria culture to begin the decomposition, as well as a tub of specially trained, ex-KGB worms, renowned for their voracious appetites, hardiness and loyalty to the Motherland.
If treated right, something smelly and unhygienic can be broken down into not-so-smelly and safe to use within about a year, thanks to slow decomposition by aerobic bacteria, fungi and worms.
Our Lav Shack already comes complete with a handy urine separator, this can be diverted from the unit or to a large bottle which can be emptied .... This helps the brown stuff that goes in the bucket dry out quicker, reducing the odour. If the two are mixed (Like in an ordinary toilet), the saturation of whizz actually creates anaerobic conditions that are harmful to the bacteria and worms, reducing the rate of decomposition and causing a worse smell, so separating them early on is key!
Once full, the bucket can be emptied into the composting bin, with an extra bucketful of sawdust for good measure! The lid then goes firmly on, preventing any pongs from travelling in the breeze.
Within about a year, you'll be left with safe compost that'll do just fine on your flowerbeds... or your vegetable patch if you're feeling brave!
