Envirolet at IDS08, Part 3

Posted by Scott

We first wrote about IDS08 on Friday when we posted a quick video. As promised, here are some of the photos from the Envirolet® installation at the Sarah Richardson’s My Country design, part of designLIVE feature at IDS08.

An Envirolet® composting toilet system was the perfect choice to handle sanitation in a sustainable and environment-friendly manner, two goals of the overall designLIVE project. This particular model uses only 0.5L of water per flush.

Envirolet Waterless Remote in Ontario

Posted by Scott

Brian from Arizona was kind enough to send us some great photos of his family cottage in Ontario with an Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installed in it.

He writes:

“Good morning!

I have attached pictures of our cottage on Lake of the Woods near Kenora, Ontario, with our waterless electric composter featured. We installed this unit 3 years ago, and it has been working great ever since. As we don’t use the place in the winter, the compost freezes until we return in the spring.

The waterless feature allows us to have the use of a modern facility without worrying about the possibility of pollution to the lake.

We are very pleased with the operation, and as you can see, it was installed a bit outside of clearance and exhaust angle specs, but still performs very well, a very forgiving unit.

Please send us a starter kit if you use our pictures, as this helps get the unit working again after being frozen for 6 months. Our shipping address is the same as below.

Thank you for a great product.

Envirolet on New Bill Nye Show for Discovery’s Planet Green

Posted by Scott

An Envirolet® composting toilet recently traveled to Los Angeles for an appearance with on a new television show that will air on Discovery’s upcoming Planet Green television network hosted by Bill Nye.

Bill Nye is of course most famous as Bill Nye the Science Guy. He has made several appearances on many other tv shows, including Living With Ed, another green show hosted by his neighbour and good friend Ed Begley Jr.

The new show is called Stuff Happens but we do not have any concrete dates as to when it will begin airing. Stuff Happens follows Bill as he investigates how to be more green in your home room-by-room. Envirolet® was the perfect product to highlight green sanitation.

While we wait for the show, we thought we would share some photos from the shoot day.
