What: A sandwich made from ingredients grown on human poop and pee compost. The sandwiches are sold at festivals in a BROODJE POEP (Shit Sandwich) cart that also carries a toilet to collect the valuable human waste needed to make the sandwiches.

Why: Closing the food cycle should be the world’s number one priority. Returning the nutrients and micro-organisms from our excrement to the soil is a centuries-old technique that in the long run is economically more beneficial than using fertilisers.

How: By integrating a dry toilet in a food truck that serves tasty sandwiches, BROODJE POEP demonstrates how easy the food cycle can be closed. This helps to raise public support for the issue.
