SOIL is a small grassroots organization working in Haiti to facilitate the community-identified priority of ecological sanitation (EcoSan), where human wastes are converted into valuable compost. EcoSan simultaneously tackles some of Haiti's toughest challenges – providing improved sanitation to people who would otherwise have no access to a toilet and producing rich, organic compost critical for agriculture and reforestation. SOIL's EcoSan toilets and composting sites in Haiti have received international attention for being a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly, and user-approved sanitation intervention.
