SOIL is helping to ensure that communities in Haiti have access to safe and dignified sanitation.
Through EkoLakay, SOIL’s household toilet business, customers pay a small, subsidized monthly fee for a locally made EcoSan toilet in their home, which is serviced by SOIL each week. The service includes collecting full waste receptacles and replacing them with empty sanitized ones, as well as replenishing a supply of cover material (used for “flushing” a dry toilet).
The receptacles are taken to SOIL’s treatment facilities, where the waste is treated safely and transformed into rich, fertile compost. The compost is then sold to support agriculture, reforestation, and climate change mitigation efforts in Haiti. Through this cycle of safe sanitation, SOIL is preventing the spread of waterborne disease, increasing families’ safety and security, and protecting vulnerable aquatic ecosystems.
2.0 billion people around the world still do not have basic sanitation facilities such as toilets or latrines. – World Health Organization
