Nature Commodes strives to reach the highest level of sustainability
- Nature Commode units are flat packed, therefore using fewer vehicles to transport a greater number of toilets.
- Transporting the human excrement in containers in a box truck reduces fuel use, in comparison to the fuel needs of pumper trucks.
- Instead of a thick plastic box, Nature Commode toilets are fabricated from steel and fabric, greatly reducing the environmental footprint of each unit, including recyclability at end of life.
- Instead of chemicals manufactured in a factory, Nature Commode uses locally sourced sawdust, a sustainable byproduct from a local mill.
- Nature Commode partners with Dr Bronners to provide organic hand soap and sanitizer
- Nature Commode uses 100% recycled content toilet paper and hand towels.
- Nature Commode is a local, woman founded/owned business.
- Nature Commode pays all crew members a livable wage.
EDUCATION ON ECOLOGICAL SANITATION & NUTRIENT CYCLING
Our toilets have a dual function to provide the public with an opportunity to use an ecological sanitation service and to learn about nutrient cycling
Most of the nutrients in the food and beverage you just consumed pass through your body. These same nutrients can be used again to benefit new plant growth and soil health.
Urine has a similar composition to commercial fertilizers. Nature Commode treats all collected urine so it can be safely used to fertilize crops in the region.
Eventually, Nature Commode will have the means to process all of the collected solids into a Class A compost.
Nature Commode is part of the GiveBack Nutrient Cycling Project. To learn more about nutrient cycling visit THEGIVEBACKPROJECT.com
