Here’s the straight poop …


One of the most often asked questions at Utah Safe Haven sounds something like this … “Okay, I get the need for a retreat property, and I understand that you can help with power and water … but what about a toilet?”  Our answer is usually quickly followed by, “Ew!  Are you kidding me?  This is the 21st Century, y’know!”  “Simple is as simple does” certainly applies at one’s bug-out site or weekend retreat.  Our currently accepted manner of handling and processing waste is cumbersome, expensive and not particularly environmentally sound.  Keep it simple, preppers!

But don’t take our word for it, click the link below and read the article, then make a (bit better informed) decision based on you and your family’s wants and needs (and remember, the latter usually outweighs the former).  Author Lloyd Alter explains the various options much better than we ever could (besides, why spend time re-inventing the wheel?)
