Nature's Footprint Coco Coir Compost Material (5k block) For Composting Toilets
Nature's Footprint coco fiber compost material is 100% natural coco fiber. This natural material acts as a natural sponge, improves aeration, enhances decomposition, and absorbs water to help reduce odor.
This is a great eco-friendly alternative to peat moss.
PREPARING YOUR COCO FIBER
- Place the Coco Coir block into a 3 gallon or larger container. 5 Gallon buckets work great.
- Add just enough water to allow you to break loose the amount of coco coir desired. (Store the remaining compressed block for later use)
- The coir should feel crumbly like loose garden soil.
- If you can squeeze water out of a handful of coco coir, it is far too wet. Allow the coco coir to air dry to the correct consistency.
COCO FIBER COMPOSTING TOILET USE
Recommended for use with the Nature's Head Composting Toilet.
- Put the desired amount of Coco Fiber in a 5-gallon container.
- Hydrate the Coco Fiber (typically comes dehydrated in a solid mass) with water until no dry clumps are visible and it has the look and feel of fresh garden soil (damp and crumbly, not wet).
- Pour the hydrated coco until it levels out just under or at the agitator.
- Put the toilet back together and its ready for use.
- It is recommended that you allow up to 6 hours between readying your toilet for use and then actually going #2 in it. This is to let the Toilet contents, the coco fiber, to get to the proper temperature needed for composting.
COCO FIBER USED FOR GARDEN COMPOSTING
Mix green and brown materials 1:2. Coco fiber is a brown, carbon-rich, material. In situations where coco fiber will act solely as your brown portion, use a 1:1 ratio. If you mix coco fiber with other brown materials, you will need to adjust your proportions accordingly, being careful not to add too much. If you have excess brown material, try adding water and/or more green ingredients to balance the batch.
