In Nepal’s Sotang district, the farmers have been reaping bountiful harvests due to a project initiated last year by the Dzi Foundation, a Colorado-based non-profit organization, along with a local non-governmental organization. They have built over 1,000 toilets for nearly 6,500 residents of Sotang, the toilets have a dual-hole pan that collects urine in a separate basin, called as ‘ecological sanitation,’ or ecosan, toilet. The collected urine is then used as a fertilizer that provides with abundant crops and also increases the hygienic conditions of the area.
