Poo in the News


| 5/6/2009 9:06:34 AM



How we dispose of personal waste is becoming a hot topic, as we become more aware of the fragility of our finite water system. In a previous blog, Would You Use a Composting Toilet?, we queried readers about their interest in compost toilets. You can read the dozens of comments, mostly in favor of their use, along with some commentaries on the health of our water system.

Now Grist, the well-known environmental website, has jumped into the fray with a series on waste — where it goes and what happens to it on the way: Crap Happens: A Grist Special Report on How We Dispose of Our Poop.



You can weigh in on the discussion by posting a comment below.

I subscribed to the magazine in the early 70's and kept them for reference for several years. I was glad to find the publication again. It will be especially helpful since we have left urban life for the country/small town atmosphere.
