TeleSur: Organization Improves Sanitation in Haiti With Toilets
We’re excited to share that TeleSur English featured SOIL’s EkoLakay household composting toilet service as a uniquely viable solution to the sanitation crisis in Haiti. The article features excerpts from a recent NPR-KGOU interview with our Deputy Director, Nick Preneta. Read on!
From TeleSur English:
“SOIL provides a household toilet service called EkoLakay. Customers rent a locally-made eco-friendly composting toilet in their home for approximately US$3-4 per month. The organization [collects] the full buckets and transports the waste to its compost sites, where the waste is transformed into nutrient-rich compost. “We have a member of our team that comes by each house to collect the filled containers, which are sealed, and then gives them a clean one with that cover material,’” Preneta said. Over 75 percent of Haiti’s population lacks access to safe sanitation. SOIL’s service is uniquely adapted to places where latrines and septic tanks are not viable, Prenata said.”
