“The prototype, called a ‘clean hub,’ is made from an old, 20-foot-long storage container and houses a bathroom complete with a composting toilet and a solar shower, a 4,400-gallon water tank, a foot pump-powered sink, and water collection and filtration systems. Running on two solar panels and a 1500-watt battery, the hub also provides sufficient electricity to power itself, with enough left over to run a small appliance, such as a laptop.”

Wapshott Press-a-Go-GoOh, by the way, the Wapshott Press has recently become an Amazon Charity. Yes, Amazon makes you sign in, sorry. So, anyway, please remember us if you buy any of these wacky books I like to read, and when you're holiday shopping. A little money goes a long way at the Wapshott Press.
Oh, and the Wapshott Press is still a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! Tax deductible donations can be made here: www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/2716533 and thank you so much for your support!
