Glastonbury to introduce self-composting toilets

Toilets that turn human waste into fertiliser are to feature at Glastonbury, organisers have said.

The loos have been provided by Water Aid as part of a project to help people in the third world, in this case by turning the brown stuff into compost that will help fertilise crops.

It is one of a number of initiatives Water Aid are carrying out at the festival, which will include getting people involved in campaigning work that includes lobbying politicians.

Those attending Glastonbury may also find the new loos more user-friendly than the holes in the ground normally on hand in the Stone Circle Field.

People looking to enjoy a bit of extra comfort at the festival may also find they can achieve this by popping into their nearest Go Outdoors store and getting some camping furniture.

The full line up for Glastonbury 2010 includes the likes of U2, Stevie Wonder, the Lightning Seeds and DJ Fatboy Slim.
