Tiny Home #mythbusting – Composting Toilets

We reckon compost toilets are the most commented on aspect of our Tiny Home eco cabins! Comments like “Toilet was a bit odd but not difficult to use” and “ The composting toilet took some getting used to but instructions were clear and we got the hang of it!”’ to “  I was surprised how well the compost toilet worked “ fill our reviews.

We do accept that the idea of a compost toilet discourages some people from booking with us …. which is a shame as they are missing out on a contemporary eco stay experience that truly treads light on the environment.

We make no apologies at all for sticking with our guns on this one however.

The low down on our composting toilets!

Top 5 myths to bust

  • They are like festival toilets
  • They are ‘long drop’ style and am going to have to look at poo
  • They smell
  • They are difficult to use
  • I am worried if I get sick / have my period

Lets bust those myths!

  • Festival toilets are temporary and usually chemical based
  • Our toilets are diverting toilets (meaning poo and wee are separate) and completely cleaned between guests – no poo remains in the toilet!
  • Used correctly they do not smell and in any case we service on request!
  • Once you have used a couple of times you have the hang of it (as often quoted in our reviews)
  • We provide sick bags and feminine bags that go into general waste – this is legal waste disposal.

Watch our #poofree video above to see how our toilets work.
