Don’t Poo Poo The Doo Doo

Posted on

Imagine the concept of saving your own poo!  ICK! Double ICK! There is a movement (heehee) going on in this department.  But the jury is till out on the concept called humanure.  You can read all about it here.

The Humanure Handbook – Center of the Humanure Universe 

Given that most of us have a hate relationship with our excretory system, I am pretty confident that this will be not become the norm.  But for the truly self-sufficient soul it may be just another way to put the poo to good.  From the earth back to the earth.  There are a number of ways to utilize the poo, you can purchase a composting toilet. 

Save the Earth!

Companies like Outdora sell self containing or full out composting systems for those interested in the humanure concept.  There are more primitive solutions such as the old style outhouse that will also work.  You can read some interesting history about outhouses @ The Outhouse’s of America Tour.

If you truly have a desire to compost your waste you must check out  Joseph Jenkins blog and books on the subject.  He appears to be a leading expert on poo uses.  He is the author of the book the Humanure Handbook listed above

While this concept may seem foreign to many of us it seems to be the logical conclusion to the  “in the mouth out the pooper “process.  And for those who practice it I am sure most adhere to an organic diet by being a vegetarian or a vegan.   But it is still important to  fully understand the process and not just dump human waste into your garden.  We do have many harmful bacteria that can be deadly living in our digestive track.  If you follow the rules and compost properly it believed  that the good bacteria will kill the bad. 

 For more information on the process you can also read what Grandpappy Robert Wayne Atkins writes on the humanure movement.  🙂

Happy Dirt!
