Composting Toilets for Large Public Buildings

Idea#27

Stage: Active

Campaign: Protecting America’s Waters

Such as airports, sports arenas, etc. We could use so much less water if the EPA would encourage large public venues/buildings with high volume traffic to use composting toilets. If you're near Atlanta, you can come see what these are like at Sweetwater Creek State Park, whose Visitor Center has composting toilets and was the first LEED Platinum certified building in the Southeast.

    The first time I saw how these worked, I couldn't believe more people didn't look into this option in areas where water contamination is likely or where water it so limited. It's not complicated and the end product is top soil. I'm told they make for a less smelly restroom too.
