Solving for Toilets meeting

Solving for Toilets in Wildfire Rebuilding and Recovery
Considerations for Non-Septic, Non-Sewer Alternative Toilets in Rebuild Areas

What innovations in alternative toilet designs and technologies could help get wildfire rebuilders back home quicker, more sustainably, with a significant cost savings, too? What kind of alternatives to septic and sewer are allowed in rebuilds today? How might new options be especially helpful in rural areas or in places with difficult terrain?

Join us for a lively conversation all about toilets!
