ONE: 7 Sustainable toilets that could change the way the world poops
“We know how important toilets are in the fight against water contamination and diarrheal disease. But because of infrastructure and cost, conventional toilets don’t always work in developing countries – and as a result, 35% of the world’s population to lack access to basic, working toilets.
Fortunately, there are a few cost-effective, eco-friendly, sustainable toilet solutions out there that work for all kinds of environments. It’s creative thinking like this that can help increase the number of people who have access to toilets – and perhaps even change the way the world poops.” –Jaswanth Madhavan, ONE, November 18, 2014.

A key difference about the SOIL thinking, seems to be the hip control of the wisdoms it specialises in.
That is the nonproprietary of its methods.
Of the methods, it seems to me, key is the helping people to carefully separate the no1s from the no2s.
This involves bringing people together with university hygiene specialists who may not even be able to read and write!
Demanding language, diplomacy etc. and etc.
But at the other end, where the no1s and no2s are brought together again, the need to help politically and with job
management is needed too.
Yet even here, in the UK, there is an exchange market for toilet compost.
Yet we just chuck it away.
Even with the French bedae culture, they just chuck it away.
The key missing, seems to be the advertising that more home grown food could be had.
Also that in the Bible, it says that in the future, we will stay at home a lot growing our own in Paradise like
Luckily the poorer people, who need it most, love harvest festivals and sing to God a bit more.
