So far, this archive includes:

Basic information on waterless composting toilet systems:  

All of these resources have been attached to this page in .PDF form, in case the links break.


Information specific to using waterless composting toilets at festivals and other events:

  •  Natural Event is a compost toilet project for events which began at Folk, Rhythm, and Life in Victoria, Australia.
  • The ThunderBox Collective have been building composting toilets for festivals and events in the UK for more than 9 years.
  • Boom Festival in Portugal began composting humanure in 2006 with a trial pod of 20 toilets, and in 2012, provided 186 composting toilet units 


Potential projects for kiwi compost toilet champions

  •  The Earth Building Association combined their efforts to define a national standard for earth buildings, which has made it much easier for people to get regulatory approval to use earth building techniques around the country. Perhaps we could get a working group together to define a standard for compost toilet systems?
