The presenter, Laura Allen, has visited ecological sanitation
projects in the U.S., Mexico, and El Salvador, and researched other
projects around the world. She has had a composting toilet and urine
harvesting system in her home for the past six years. As a founding
member of Greywater Action, she leads hands-on workshops about
sustainable water systems.
*This is a benefit event for "Free the Hikers," three Americans who
have been detained in Iran for the past six months. One of the hikers,
Sarah Shourd, is a close friend of Laura's and they traveled
throughout Mexico to conduct interviews with ecological sanitation
experts when Laura was performing research for the book "Dam Nation:
Dispatches of the Water Underground." All proceeds from this event
will support the legal fees and travel costs for the families of the
three hikers. To learn more visit: freethehikers.org
