The outhouse isn’t finished and yet it’s already been christened by all three kids! The roof was completed and the seat worked on.
Saving and recycling your poop is “gross”. Not many people are willing to consider composting their poop and frankly, many probably don’t even want to acknowledge they have poop at all. What, I don’t poop. That’s gross.
I’m reminded of climbing trips to popular crags like Skaha in the old days. I’d get up in the morning, head to the campsite bathroom for my morning poop (yes, I poop) and being given the social evil eye by the other women, often applying makeup, upon my exit from the stall. No, I wasn’t especially loud or smelly. It’s like you’re supposed to pretend you don’t poop. Like you’re supposed to hold it until the bathroom is empty so you can do this dirty dirty deed without witnesses. Like it’s rude to use the toilet facilities to their full intended purpose. Well, I refuse. Pooping is normal. Everyone poops! Viva le poops!
I think many people prefer their waste to go away without further thought of where it goes or what happens to it. Sewage plants, dumping in the ocean and other mass disposal of human waste is well… a waste. These mentioned methods contribute to environmental destruction and is obviously harmful to our health. Poop is nutrient rich and safe to use on crops, once it’s been composted, not to mention the numerous other benefits to recycling human waste.
This is the view from the toilet seat. Not that pretty yet but one day soon…
