Let’s embark on the taboo subject of human manure! The problem of waste in an off grid or grid down situation is embarrassingly simple. Most people don’t consider waste when thinking about emergency preparedness. Furthermore, when most people do consider waste they look at it as a problem and not a resource. Human excrement is actually not waste at all, we only approach it as waste. In permaculture you will often hear, “the problem is the solution.” In this case, the “problem” really is a solution and is, in fact, a great resource. Whenever we consult with clients on property analysis & design we always recommend a dry composting toilet. This takes a problem and turns it into a resource.
