May 2013 Newsletter: A Sustainable Sanitation Revolution
Day after day our agronomists bring in epic harvests of spinach, beets, sorghum, yams, and other vegetables, and people are starting to take note of the positive impact that EcoSan compost has on production yields. On the compost supply side, our hearts are rich with stories from SOIL toilet users who like their toilets and the demand for EcoSan toilets around Haiti is so strong that we can’t keep up with all the requests. This month, instead of sending you a long letter, we wanted to give you a chance to check out some of the latest positive news about our work in Haiti. We believe that we are truly making headway towards our goal of instigating a demand driven ecological sanitation revolution, and we couldn’t do it without your support.
With love from Haiti,
