Crazy Young American

Episodic break from triplet musings and onto Haiti. . .

Located on my side bar maybe you have noticed SOIL: Empowering Haiti through soil. (Maybe "empowering" was a poor word choice?) Did anybody donate to this cause (or even regard the link?)? No. Well, don't feel bad, but do it! Or take a trip down there and help build a composting toilet with my hilarious and brainy friend Sasha Kramer. Sasha, I need to get down there! At least read about her cause. . .

The scoop on poop (and pee): S.O.I.L builds toilets where toilets and sanitation lack and fecal-born disease prevails, in a country (Haiti) where soils are nutrient depleted.
The twist: separate pee from poo thus making it cleaner, and compost the human waste into nutrient-rich fertilizer for food production. Snappy.

And she's not just young and crazy, she is also a Stanford-educated PhD.

Sasha is who I want to be in my next life. Click HERE and check out the New York Times article and watch the video embedded. The only flaw is they left out her infamous laugh (California style).

Next blog post, triplets only.
