Original story here: http://faircompanies.com/videos/view/... Our sewage system is archaic: every week, New York City sends 800 Olympic sized swimming pools of sewage water into nearby waterways. It's also expensive and energy-consuming to treat our waste: Britain's sewage treatment uses a quarter of the energy of the country's largest coal-fired power plant.
There are alternatives. Oakland, California resident Laura Allen uses a urine-diverting toilet. The urine is used as fertilizer, and the feces is stored in plastic drums to compost. After a year, all pathogens are destroyed and the drum is filled with "humanure" which Allen uses on her garden.Original content here: http://faircompanies.com/videos/view/...
