Indoor composting toilet, bio-shelter thermal battery, and low-maintenance gardens

Featured Video Play Icon

During a quick visit to his home in Plymouth, New Hampshire, Steve Whitman tells me about his neat indoor composting toilet, and gives me a quick tour of his bio-shelter, where he explains the thermal battery design used for storing heat. He also talks about replacing his front lawn with a low-maintenance garden.

There’s a lot more to be said about what Steve has done on his family’s half-acre urban lot, and hopefully I’ll visit again later this year when everything isn’t covered with snow! In the meantime, if you’re interested in learning more about composting toilets, you can check out the Humanure Handbook, considered by many to be THE reference on the subject.
