Honestly, I think its way smarter to fashion a composting toilet ones self. A thousand dollar throne sounds more fit for the loo in one of Al Gore's charter jets.

After researching and using a bucket toilet for 6 months, I could not agree more.

i have been experimenting. i have peed in the compost toilet i built for a month. i have left it in the toilet for a month! temps have been rising up to the mid 80's and there is still no smell!!! just a little pine mulch after every pee and all is well. so i can safely say that i can use it and dump it every week and it will be good to go!

I'm just a cheap arse. Hence my $3 bucket and $2 lid from Walmart. I have a box of catlit that I will try. Can't wait to move into my bus to try out my new toilet!

I agree also.....I'll be doing some experimenting in the very near future!

Could even try the Eastern European method... Just open the back door and do it in traffic!

The idea of building a greenhouse on the back of my bus is a definite possibility for me. I hope I can actually "compost.' As it would be really beneficial.

Peeing in the kitchen sink is where you wash your dishes is bad enough but using human compost to grow your food is downright disturbing.

Some actual info on human waste as fertilizer-
The Stink About Human Poop As Fertilizer - Modern Farmer

Our town has a garden fertilized with human waste right at the treatment facility.

Don't be so prissy. Better to use the nutrients than dump it all at sea. It is organic and recyclable.
