Sharing an innovative toilet culture is a great opportunity for community building.
The group needs to find answers to many questions: Who will create the system?
Where to place it? How will the system be taken care of? How aesthetic and comfortable do people want it to be? How much can it cost? etc.
This is a chance to practice negotiation and decision-making.
When a group is starting in the countryside or suburbs, compost toilets can act as an indicator of whether the group is ready to address ecological and collective issues.
To sum up, the practice of having compost toilets in a community touch upon many layers:
• The social dimension, by sharing toilet culture as a community
• The ecological dimension, with the advantage of saving water and producing fertilizer
• The economical dimension by closing the circle of the flow of organic material, utilizing “waste”, saving by sharing
• The cultural dimension by adding value to the end of the cycle of food, bringing in aesthetic features, transforming the prevailing “rituals” of toilet culture.
