Why Poop?

THE PROBLEM

It’s simple; our poop is piling up in the great outdoors.

That’s right, as the population rises, culture shifts, and traffic increases in mountain recreation areas people’s poop has to go somewhere. Unfortunately, often times people aren’t educated as to how important it is to take care of their shit and waste management infrastructure is rarely there to support them. As any of you that have ever encountered a brown trout while fishing for a place to do your own business outside know, that shit is gross. It can also have detrimental effects on water systems and surrounding ecosystems. Additionally, waste barrels, outdated vault toilets or failing “composting” toilets can often cost parks hundreds of thousands of dollars in waste transportation and pumping.

THE SOLUTION

It’s simple; separate pee and poo.

As we set out to find the most effective solutions to implement, we inevitably turned to nature for the solution. Turns out, humans are the only animals on earth the pee and poop in the exact same spot. This is a problem. Nature did not intend for our byproducts to be mixed together. When combined, the resulting compounds created are toxic, including the stinky ammonia gases that we associate with outhouse smell. Investigating possible solutions, we came across Toilet Tech Solutions. PhD Geoff Hill has studied human waste management for decades and through his research and understanding of how to appropriately manage human waste, he developed the urine diversion system. It works. Liquid waste goes one way, solid another. Then, microbes in the soil can do their part to help with decomposition. Without liquid waste bogging down the solids, even where rock bed makes pack-out models necessary, the load is a lot lighter.

THE PROCESS

It’s simple; we install a solution, you do your business, and we solve problems.

Our process is something we take pride in. Identifying a waste management problem in a specific location is our starting point. Once we work with local partners to develop our approach, we decide what the most effective long-term solution will be. Then we make it happen. From there, you continue to recreate, knowing that your waste is going to be taken care of.
