Manual for human manure composting

What if the organic waste from the seven billion people who use the toilet every day could be turned into valuable resources? Recycling our feces and urine remains a major taboo in our societies. Yet, using clean drinking water to dispose of our waste may be one of our most curious and polluting cultural habits.

Joseph Jenkins presents a compelling argument here in favor of humanure composting, a suitable solution to prevent water pollution, fertilize soils, protect our drinking water reserves, and improve our health. Finally available in French after a phenomenal success in the United States, this practical guide provides detailed scientific information on how humanure can be hygienically recycled without the need for technological gadgets or chemicals, without bleeding your wallet, and without polluting the environment. Richly documented on composting techniques, alternative wastewater treatment systems, soil fertility, microorganisms, and much more, it also explains how to obtain or build a humanure toilet or compost bin yourself.

Of great ecological relevance, and not without a touch of humor to defuse any negative apprehension, The Little Book of Humanure may offend you, but it will certainly challenge you. Because anyone interested in a sustainable future will understand the need to address this issue. So, are human excreta simply waste or resources to be valued?
