Twice a week a large colorfully painted truck rumbles out of the SOIL office gate to drive through the capital city collecting waste from SOIL's EcoSan toilets. More than 5,000 people living in tent cities around Port-au-Prince currently depend on the SOIL "Poopmobile" to pick up their full toilet drums and deliver them to the SOIL compost site for safe treatment and transformation into rich, organic compost. Sadly, after 3 years of faithful service, the Poopmobile has broken down beyond the point of repair, and we're now working to raise money for a replacement Poopmobile II.
Over the past two days we've received an overwhelming outpouring of support from around the world, and we're now over halfway towards our goal replacing the Poopmobile. Learn more at http://www.oursoil.org/save-the-poopmobile/
Thank you to everyone who has joined us on the campaign to replace the Poopmobile!
