The Proper Way to Use and Dispose of Composting Toilet Waste

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that composting toilets have gained popularity in American homes as an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional flush toilets. 

Composting toilets are an innovative system that converts human waste into nutrient-rich compost that closely resembles topsoil. They help to reduce water consumption and contribute to sustainable living practices – particularly for those without access to a reliable water source or for those who live in remote areas. 

Why the Nature Loo Low Profile is Perfect for Tiny Homes

If there’s one housing trend that’s gained in popularity over the past few years, it’s tiny homes! Some people are seeking a simpler, more sustainable lifestyle; some are looking for financial freedom. Others are looking to reduce their environmental impact on the earth, and others like the idea of living the off-grid lifestyle, not dependent on anyone or anything for water, power and waste management. 

What’s the difference between a chemical toilet & a composting toilet?

If you’re on the lookout for a toilet that will suit a recreational vehicle, cabin, tiny home or off-grid home and are trying to choose between a chemical toilet or a composting toilet, we run through the difference between these types of toilets. While both options have their pros and cons, at Natureloo we believe composting toilets are the superior choice for several important reasons, which we will outline below. 

The ultimate guide to outdoor toilets

For many Americans, making the move to live in a cabin or tiny home is a great way to help move towards a simpler lifestyle by downsizing and living in smaller spaces. 

Not only do tiny homes and cabins usually help lower the costs of living by reducing construction materials and requiring less energy to heat or cool, they're also a great way to reduce your environmental impact. 

What are some off-grid cabin toilet options?

Living off the grid has become increasingly popular in the US in recent years, with more and more people seeking to live self-sufficiently and sustainably. A critical aspect of off-grid living is having a toilet system that is reliable, sanitary and environmentally friendly. With this in mind, let’s explore some off-grid options for waste management.

Why more Americans are installing composting toilets

Composting toilets have been around for a long time, but they have recently gained popularity in the United States and Canada. Composting toilets are a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional flush toilets and are increasingly being installed in homes, cabins, and off-grid properties around the country, and it’s little wonder with savings in water and an independence from the water grid.
