tedgyz (515156) writes "Wired discusses the dirty topic of handling our waste in an environmentally friendly manner. I had the benefit of seeing one of these systems in action at a rest stop in Vermont. I paid a visit to the rest room and then walked into the greenhouse to see where "things" get processed.

From the article: Everybody likes trees, but (aesthetics aside) sending poop from the bathroom to the lobby may seem sort of icky. In environmental terms, though, it's a solid choice. Just as photovoltaics can help take a building off the power grid, living machines take strain off the pipes and municipal wastewater facilities on the "sewage grid." They also show that being green means thinking more creatively about our brown and yellow."
