Genre


Dan has spent much of the past 30 years studying sustainability and applying what he has learned in solar energy, natural building, and green building to his residences, and most of the last ten plus years sharing the practical knowledge he has gained through writing, lectures, slide shows, and workshops.

Dan Chiras paid his last electric bill in June of 1996. It is not that he has disavowed the use of electricity and modern conveniences, but rather that he has turned to the sun and wind to meet his family's needs.

“we’ve built a society that gets what it needs from the Earth and ecosystems but does far too little to maintain the health of the ecosystems we depend on, which are quite literally the life-support systems of the planet.”
Dan Chiras, The Scoop on Poop: Safely Capturing and Recycling the Nutrients in Greywater, Humanure, and Urine
