Environmental Benefits of Portable Sanitation
In our modern society, waste must be covered as much as possible and liquid solutions that pose no harm to the environment but effectively kill pathogens must be used. Let’s explore the environmental benefits of portable sanitation.
1. Avoiding Toxic Runoff
Algal blooms in river deltas pull oxygen from the aquatic ecosystem before the algae sinks to the bottom of the river creating dead zones around the coast. Algal blooms are partially caused by artificial fertilizers, but biological waste from factory farms is also a contributor. Uncontrolled human waste can add to it, as well. In densely populated areas without good sanitation, human waste actually pollutes the waterways and water bodies. Such problems can be prevented by relying on portable toilets when there aren’t local sanitation facilities like bathrooms or other basic sanitation facilities.
2. Disease Control
While we often forget, sanitation and sewers helped in nearly eliminating waterborne illnesses. Human waste attracts insects who then spread it to food or trash in the surrounding area. It creates an environment in which many dangerous diseases can spread. Portable sanitation facilities help in minimizing the potential spread of diseases.
Intestinal parasites are also controlled by using portable sanitation. In this case, containing them in the portable toilet prevents them from getting into the soil and causing harm.
3. Saving Water
Portable toilets help in conserving water as well. They collect the waste with a minimum (or no) water. People tend to use less water in portable toilets than they would while leaving the faucet on as they wash and dry their hands in a conventional toilet.
