Eco-Loo compost toilet in a strawbale roundhouse
We recently delivered an Eco-Loo Divert 20 to Janta and Merav, who have created a place called Karuna in Shropshire. Although they’ve been resident on the site since 2007, in the last couple of years, they obtained planning permission to build a strawbale, green roof roundhouse.
Since moving onto the 16 acre site, they have planted over 9,000 trees and are demonstrating and living the future through forest gardening, permaculture and sustainable practices.
Until now, they’ve been using a simple but effective ‘long drop’ style compost toilet, but being outside, means getting to it, especially when it’s dark, wet and cold, can be a struggle. Janta says he’ll still use his outside loo with a view, but Merav will benefit from having an indoor toilet!
Merav chose the ‘untreated’ Eco-Loo Divert 20 with solid oak toilet seat. They’ll probably be applying a few coats of Tung oil to protect and enhance the wood.
