Group Description

"North to the Future" may also be the last gasp of yesterday when it comes to solid waste (garbage, trash, carcasses, litter, waste) and toilets (sanitation, honey buckets, anuk)

It is not as simple as "send the honey bucket to the museum" or build a piped sewer system. [or moving your entire community to Seattle or Los Anchorage]

This is not a group for colorful outhouses in Alaska. International flytipping - fouling our nest - is a good one for illegal dumping (flytipping) in general.

This is a group for WATSAN or ecosan systems and processes for sustainable living in the Arctic and sub-Arctic in the United States. This is not a group to embarrass others. After all, we live with our environment; we are the environment. Welcome to our home.

[see discussion on duckie gyres, the great Melt Rush, SWMP planning, handwashing, and more resources at]

Another group-- tip from
We have uploaded about 1500 photos on good and bad sanitation from around the world on flickr, see here (grouped by countries): Ecosan group
We have made use of detailed tagging so that the photos can easily be found by anyone doing searches for “pit latrine”, urine, ecosan or whatever.
See our two websites for further info on our work:
