  1. Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL)

    Comments Off on Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL)

    SOIL was formed in 2006 by a team of ecologists and human rights advocates to improve the lives of Haitians. By taking a holistic approach, SOIL’s work simultaneously revives damaged social and natural environments.

    EkoLakay is SOIL’s growing household sanitation social business. Customers pay an affordable monthly user fee which covers waste collection and maintenance. All wastes from SOIL’s toilets are collected and safely transformed into compost.

    Although SOIL’s implementation efforts are limited to Haiti, its ultimate goal is to prove that sanitation can produce resources, restore ecosystems, nurture solidarity, create dignified livelihoods, and build health and resilience.
