This is a collective benefit! What we propose is to share the investment for the construction of 17 Dry WC, because the solution is for everyone and ecologically responsible.

Drinking water is considered to be a scarce and even non-existent resource on much of the planet, although it continues to be used by all, directly or indirectly, with a huge level of waste.
At the Industrial and Agricultural level, it is difficult to find direct ways of making its use more responsible; however, at the domestic level, reducing water waste is effectively within our reach.
Most of the time, we are not aware that: the use of the cistern assumes on average 40% of the total domestic consumption; or that in our day to day, every time we pull the toilet we discharged between 7 and 15 liters of drinking water, representing an average annual consumption per house of 45,000 liters of water, POTABLE! (according to the National Water Efficiency Program of the Water Institute, Ministry of Environment and Territory).
The saving of drinking water is achieved through the non-use of the flushing system, but also later in the treatment of waste (unlike in a waste water treatment plant). With this system, we managed to close a cycle, having as final product a fertilizer for agroforestry and gardening.
Opting for compost toilets is increasingly a credible solution, using efficient technologies, suitable not only in situations where there are terraced houses, but also in urban environments and even in apartments. These solutions that use more innovative technologies are still uncommon and costly.
By supporting this project you are also enabling a research and research background to make these and other solutions available to all.
We are part of the integral Minga cooperative, based in Montemor-o-Novo, which is guided by the promotion of sustainable practices in ecological, economic and social terms.
