The only thing I’d like to add (and you’ll have to read Jo’s article to find out why) is that compost toilets don’t take that much room: Probably a space the size of a broom cupboard in the average house.

And yes, you can expect to see them installed at The Castle sometime in the next two years. Watch this space……
Hooray for us!
The Castle won the Sustainable Building and Sustainable Procurement Awards at the 2011/2012 Sustainable City Awards. More sustainability...
