Saving water = using dry toilets !
Real alternative to the classic toilet flush, dry toilets help save water by reducing household consumption anywhere from 25 to 35% and thus stop wasting 3 to 12 liters (1 to 4 gallons) of drinking water per flush. The major interest of dry toilets is the reduction of water pollution. Using dry toilets respects the natural water cycle by reducing the waste, in volume and power that the treatment plants must process. Furthermore, dry toilets, due to composting organic waste, increase the value of a natural, easily exploitable resource. Processing water in high altitude
is a complicated task, it’s a matter of preserving landscape, avoiding odors and guaranteeing the water purification quality. Urban development in high altitude is difficult and expensive, dry toilets are one solution to making things a little bit easier. Dry toilets, composting, dry litter or biocontrolled
litter are toilets that don’t use water. The goal is to recover the waste for composting or biomethanation. Above 2000m (6500 FEET), it is better to use vermicomposting.
