There are a lot of new toilet designs out there, offering anything from lower water usage to incinerating your feces on demand. While the second is cool just because you get to burn stuff, I recently came across another solution that excretes a greener alternative.
The folks at Sun-Mar have come up with a unit that will provide you with compost ready for the garden! As the young gentleman in the photo can attest, itâ€™s not the most attractive thing to have in your bathroom, but if you can get over the queasy feeling that you might get when using your own excrement for practical purposes, youâ€™ll see it really is a neat system.
The toilet controls moisture and heat, and even aerates the compost to encourage aerobic digestion, without any water! It also creates a partial vacuum in order to trap unwanted gases from various human and composting processes. Admittedly, there arenâ€™t many cool toys that make you want to eat bran muffins in order to play with them, but with water scarcity and sewage concerns, this system might just be your next throne.
