How do we change our human waste stream from a liability into a valuable asset?

South Korean Toilet Allows Students to Pay With Their Poop

Looks interesting but how does it work?!

The toilet is the invention of Cho Jae-weon, an urban and environmental engineering professor at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology.

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation spends $200M on toilet technology

How Can Anyone Spend That Much Money On A Toilet???

Poor sanitation kills half a million children under the age of five annually and costs $200 billion a year in healthcare costs and lost income worldwide.

This book is a great source for dealing with how to handle "Humanure". It really is pretty simple. Nature has been taking care of this for millions of years.

We use the sawdust from the waste stream from our sawmill in composting toilets. We use the slab from our sawmill that otherwise would be wasted to make charcoal from a Biochar maker.  Charcoal can sequester CO2 for 1000s of years! The waste CO2 from the biochar maker will be used to feed algae and the algae then used to enrich the nutrient value of the charcoal. Charcoal will also be used in the construction of our floating homes. Charcoal remediates our soils. Nothing is wasted and everything is recycled and reused.  We also capture the heat for use in our kiln for heating our buildings and our greenhouses! Nothing is wasted!

Living within our mantra: " Use what you have and have what you use!"

Buddha said:

“What you think, you become.
What you feel, you attract.
What you imagine, you create."

What they are saying, and what so many other wise teachers have said, is that our thoughts create our reality.
