The Benefits of Composting waste:
Now in layman’s terms I’m gonna tell you why the concept of recycling grey water and human waste rocks my world. We need to readjust our thinking cap on what is waste. Humanure is valuable from a recycling standpoint. Human nutrients once put through a composting process are no longer the deposit we initially made. No, no Monsieur it has become something else entirely. It has become black gold, a safe and valuable fertilizer to put back into your flower garden. When you think of all the supposed waste we are flushing down the pipes and into our drinking water supplies…now THAT is the ultimate waste. Not only are we not recycling a valuable commodity, we are turning it into a waste product that brings with it, its own host of problems that in turn we now have to clean up. What??? That’s just silly. And all because we have this fixation with our ‘kaa kaa’ as something dirty. Really, we can do better. I for one am at one with my ‘kaa kaa’ and have nothing but loving thoughts towards it. That is why composting is the ultimate in recycling our contribution to the cycle of life. I know you know what I’m talking about. So I’m asking you nicely, please quit ‘dumping’ in my drinking water.
