Summer is in full swing and for SOIL it has been a season brimming with activity. Not even the intensity of Haiti’s summer heat has been able to slow down the efforts of our tenacious crew!SOIL’s EkoLakay team in northern Haiti has just wrapped up two back-to-back months with record-setting toilet installations, bringing more than 140 new families onto the service across Cap-Haïtien. At the same time, our SOIL truck has been zipping back and forth between the airport and SOIL’s office with increasing regularity as the R&D branch of SOIL heads into a busy month ...
Nitchenson Henry grew up in northwestern Haiti and now lives in Limonade, not far from SOIL’s composting site. He’s known what he wanted to do for a living for as long he can remember and is now proud to be working towards it as an agronomy student at a local university. Nitchenson’s hope is one that we share at SOIL: to find ways to restore soil health and agricultural productivity across Haiti.
Look at that beautiful pepper!
During a visit to SOIL’s composting site in northern Haiti for one of his college courses, Nitchenson had a chance to learn about ...
While we work to expand access to our lifesaving sanitation
services in Haiti, SOIL has also been
hard at work to study the climate impacts of our waste treatment processes
to help inform the global field of study and support the replication of
climate-positive sanitation services worldwide. We’re excited to tell you that
we have big news to share on the research front!

Far too often discussions about environmental degradation and the global climate crisis miss the mark when it comes to the legacy of colonialism and racism. Though Haiti's geographical location and topological features certainly increase the nation's physical vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, the degree of environmental degradation and environmental vulnerability in Haiti is anything but natural.

SOIL was honored to be recognized last year by the UN Momentum for Change as an inspiring and replicable solution to the global climate crisis.

Whether it’s using mobile tools to inform marketing or evaluating the optimal design of a compost bin, innovation is at the heart of everything that SOIL does as we provide our regenerative sanitation service in Haiti.
One of the biggest challenges we face in operating SOIL’s
EkoLakay sanitation service is logistics and the costs of transportation. EkoLakay’s collection crew
visits the houses of families on our household toilet service every week,
collecting full containers of waste and leaving clean empty containers and cover material for next ...
Nadege Fucien is a mother and an entrepreneur. She is raising her growing family alongside Haiti’s northern coast in a neighborhood of Cap-Haïtien called Avyasyon. Like many of her neighbors, Nadege joined SOIL’s sanitation service, EkoLakay, to have a safe, clean place for her family to go to the bathroom. During our weekly EkoLakay collection run last week, our team took a break to sit and chat together to get to know her a little more.
One of the reasons that Nadege decided first to sign up to have a SOIL toilet in her home was the affordability ...
Every bag of compost we sell is a step towards a greener, more resilient future for Haiti. To help us improve SOIL’s compost marketing and sales and to grow the reach of our lush, organic soil amendments in a country with dangerously degraded soils, we track the reach of our compost meticulously.
As we crunch the numbers and work to incorporate the learnings into our strategy moving forward, we have four interesting findings to share about compost sales trends this spring:
+ Though we have a large, loyal customer base of clients that buy a bag of compost here ...
