Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:236 EcoTip: Human manure may not be at the top of our thoughts when it comes to recycling, but it is a waste product that must be dealt with. The Humanure Handbook provides factual and practical information about how to safely compost human manure and then use it productively.

3rd edition – Published September 1, 2005

by Joseph Jenkins

Despite all the books on manure and how to use it, human manure composting is not covered elsewhere, making THE HUMANURE HANDBOOK: A GUIDE TO COMPOSTING HUMAN MANURE a fine reference for any who would learn these basics. Now in its 3rd edition, THE HUMANURE HANDBOOK covers all the basics of human waste management, from septic systems to commercial composting toilets, sewers, and more. A history of various composting methods, science, and problems is accompanied by a healthy dose of humor plus a solid foundation of science into pathogens, pros and cons of competing systems, and more. If you’re an avid composter, there’s nothing like this on the market. Midwest Book Review
