Ecological sanitation is the wave of the future and we want to be part of making it a Global Movement. (Yes, pun intended!)
SOIL is a non-profit organization working in Haiti since 2006 to transform human waste into rich, viable fertilizer for crops with simple, urine-diverting, composting toilets--and teaching others to do the same. This unusual compost has a multi-tiered positive impact on communities throughout Haiti, as it simultaneously cleans up a wide variety of public health issues, energizes agricultural yield in a country where malnutrition claims many lives, and stimulates the local economy by providing jobs for Haitians.
The film also asks how First World issues might be addressed by a similar process. Could we in the U.S. also benefit from a reduction in water-based sanitation? What impact would this have on our overall environmental landscape?
Watch an earlier version of the film for fun!
