Everyone Should Get a Composting Toilet

RECEIVED Thu., Jan. 24, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Good article on composting [“The Dirt on Composting,” News, Jan. 18], but you forgot the most important kind. Would everyone just get a composting toilet, and get over it? I have been using an Envirolet brand toilet for the past year or so, and along with getting the free potting soil every three months that smells nothing at all like what goes in the top side, the main advantage that could save our planet is the fact that I have been living on fewer than 30 gallons of water a week. Just doing my part.
