Please find attached correspondence to the DA, Capetown Mayor’s Office, SA Human Rights Commission and SA Media. The correspondence was an invitation to Capetown municipality and Capetown citizens, interested in root cause problem solving their – poo attacks – toilet dispute. [Fact: 10 million – The number of viruses contained in one gram of faeces.]
The correspondence includes detailed information about my personal use of a Bokashi Bucket Humanure Toilet system, and its benefits (a) uses no water, so saves water, (b) recycles human and home organic waste, so massively reduces wastes send to landfills; (c) humanure recycled by composting creates excellent compost which improves soil quality and helps with carbon sequestration (lessens climate change).
As a result of (a) Media Disinformation and (b) lack of alternative educational information; Capetown citizens appear to inaccurately believe that:
 Bucket toilets are unhygienic: Some of them can be, but the Bokashi bucket system is in fact far more hygienic than our current waste water system.
 Bucket toilets are an insult to dignity: This depends on the individual involved. My dignity is in fact higher due to my use of bokashi bucket system, because I feel better about myself knowing that I practice what I preach about living a lifestyle that is not ecologically damaging.
Consequently, if you inform Capetown residents of information that shows their beliefs about bucket toilets to be inaccurate, and provide them with information whereby they can participate in a waste treatment system that is ecologically sustainable and contributes to lessening Water Insecurity and Landfill waste; while benefiting soil health; their sense of dignity can only increase from the use of such a system.
In fact in the United States, dozens of Generals and Admirals have challenged citizens to ‘Walk their Talk’ of ‘Supporting the Troops’; by lowering their Ecological footprint (consumption and procreation practices: ie. Consuming less energy, water etc, and breeding less children); to lessen scarcity induced conflict. [See also MILINT Earth Day]
