Wastewater Gardens International
Wastewater Gardens International aims to address the global challenges associated with wastewater management. The organization highlights two key issues: the contamination of drinking water supplies in poorer countries lacking sewage treatment, leading to disease and death, and the high cost and environmental impact of sewage treatment plants in wealthier countries.
The text emphasizes the negative consequences of sewage contamination, such as environmental degradation through eutrophication, which harms freshwater and marine organisms. To tackle these problems, Wastewater Gardens promotes the adoption of their solution as a means to recycle organic nutrients, reduce water resource demands, and combat greenhouse gas emissions. The gardens are described as carbon and nutrient sinks, contributing to mitigating climate change.
Wastewater Gardens International aims to empower people through research and training workshops. By involving local communities in the implementation and expansion of Wastewater Gardens, the organization reduces reliance on imported equipment, saves resources, and minimizes energy consumption. The gardens are depicted as transformative spaces that utilize human waste to generate flowers, fruits, and other usable products, while safeguarding human health and local ecosystems.
Team of Experts
Our team is internationally committed to spreading constructed wetland ecotechnology into the areas most in need: countries with little sanitation infrastructure, semi-desert/desert and tropical climates, ocean and/or waterways coastlines and lands where water conservation and reutilization is essential.
