Joseph Jenkins talks about his 30 years of experience using humanure composting systems that produce no sewage, no odor, no pollution, and no waste. Mr. Jenkins consults for the Marin Composting Portable Odorless Outhouse Project (MCPOOP), a coalition committed to clean waterways and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.


"...Perhaps one reason we have taken such a head-in-the-sand approach to the recycling of human excrement is because we can't even talk about it. If there is one thing that the human consumer culture refuses to deal with maturely and constructively, it's body excretions. This is the taboo topic, the unthinkable issue...

For waste is not found in nature- except in human nature...Everything is recycled in natural systems, thereby eliminating waste. Humans create waste because we insist on ignoring the natural systems upon which we depend." -The Humanure Handbook, by Joseph Jenkins
