Overview

The Toilet Papers: Recycling Waste and Conserving Water by Sim Van Der Ryn

A classic is back in print! One of the favorite books of 1970s back-to-the-landers, The Toilet Papers is an informative, inspiring, and irreverent look at how people have dealt with their wastes through the centuries. In a historical survey, Van der Ryn provides the basic facts concerning human wastes, and describes safe designs for toilets that reduce water consumption and avert the necessity for expensive and unreliable treatment systems. The Toilet Papers provides do-it-yourself plans for a basic compost privy and a variety of graywater systems.

This is a thought-provoking and inspiring book. It should be read by all architects and city planners, though its actual audience is much broader than those professions.
