Re: Valentine's Toilet With A Natural Heart

Hello Amos

I now understand your project is for commercial purposes with rural America being your target market. With good marketing strategies you could capture good sales in rural farming communities, log cabins & homes and it could work also in beach houses and cottages where sand is plentiful. It might be a good investment after all.

But you don’t have to unnecessarily go into production of audio gadgets to give instructions on how to use your toilet. The mistake most Americans and Europeans make is to assume that the poor in the developing countries are daft, illiterate and primitive. Far from it. In technology the US and Europe could learn from East Africans. Apart from communications, we conduct e-banking and pay utilities by mobile phone and billions of local currencies are transacted each day by millions of people from all walks of life across borders in the sub-region.

There might be slums in Kenya which might use your toilets but informal settlements are found in every country in the world including yours. Who knows, we might reinvent a more efficient toilet than yours in the near future.

Re: Valentine's Toilet With A Natural Heart

Hello Mwaniki,

You must have misunderstood a bit. The real emphasis and goal of my toilet project has always been and is to help the poor. Yet the systems I have developed will likely also have some place in developed countries. My work has been non profit and I have freely given all my designs to those who could benefit from them. I did encourage donations if suitable, and encouraged people letting me know what they are doing with the designs. Thanks again for your interest. Please see the many designs at www.LiftUPThePoor.com .

Thanks for your input.

Re: Life Saver Poster

Below is a Poster I just created. This Poster is intended to bring about an awareness of the value of dry toilet systems in many places, as well as to present some dry toilet systems which I feel could do much good.

Although some photos regarding pollution, and grievous problems relating thereto, might be a bit repulsive, please understand they are simply to bring about a keen awareness of a catastrophe to seek to deter, and intended for a good cause, and hopefully a better cause than many repulsive images included in violent movies or Halloween decorations. Together may we kindly assist the needlessly suffering. Thank You.

Re: Life Saver Poster

Dear Dennisk,

I don't think any of the graphics I used are copyrighted, and I certainly am not putting any restrictions on sharing it. Thus use it as you wish.

Thank You

Re: Ultra Simple Drip Free Water Rationing and Dispensing System

Hello Forum Friends,

Below are some diagrams of a water dispensing and rationing system which I developed last summer. It possibly could do good in many places in preventing the spreading of disease . Feel free to share it or use it. I am using one in my own shop as I do not have running water in it.
