Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank
Non boaters have an environmental impact with is, in some ways, thousands of times that of those who live aboard ,while getting downright sanctimonius about we who live aboard boats. What they consider "NORMAL is an environmental impact which would take several more planets to sustain indefinitely. They put their recyclables in the blue box, drive their motor homes to the polls, to vote for the green party, then to the airport to catch a plane to the far side of the planet ,regularly,increasing their environmental foot print exponentially in the process, and preach against hunters, while paying General foods to burn the rainforests for their food supply, all the while, heating 24-7, a huge house, far bigger than they ever need, and driving their gas guzzling cars daily, while criticizing the oil industry for feeding their habits.
Compared to them, the average live aboard's environmental foot print is microscopic.
