If you think eco = simple......think again ....
There is a lot of magic that goes on in our little bathroom .....The shower has hot and cold running water (like a normal shower) with a gas boiler. This is fed from our own spring and bought to the farm via a pump house. You wont get better water than this! although there is no electricity in the yurt area, there are still lights in the bathroom which are powered by the solor panels on the roof.
The loo is a composting toilet. It's very simple but not a great subject.......
so...... to use our toilet you have to sit down for everything, ladies, this is nothing short of normal but in this case the men have to too. when u sit he flap at the back of the toilet opens (for the poop) and the front part of the toilet is for the pee!!! you do how ever have to stay sitting to make sure the flap at the back is open for the tissue. The pee goes in to a soak away and the poop gets collected along with some saw dust!! It is very simple system for us to take the waste away ....with an auto lid we store for 3 months then put it in our green compost bin. It's a very clean and easy way of being eco friendly and although it does state after 3 months we can use it on our veggy patch.... I don't think well be doing that!!!!
