Sasha Kramer ’99 and Poo

Dr. Sasha Kramer, Reed ’99, was on campus last spring to update us on S.O.I.L. (Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods), the project that she started and manages in Haiti. If you missed her talk, simply put: SOIL works with Haitians to construct composting toilets. A big part of the project is educating people about the use of the toilets, finding groups of Haitians willing to manage and take care of the toilets, and then collecting “soil” so that it can be made into compost.

If you missed her presentation, catch this interview in the May/June 2011 issue of Sierra. And follow the link to SOIL to learn more.
