SANCOR INDUSTRIES LTD. PARTNERS WITH ACTOR, ENVIRONMENTALIST ED BEGLEY, JR.
OSHAWA, Ontario (October 5, 2010) - Sancor Industries Ltd. (http://www.sancorindustries.com/), a leading manufacturer of composting toilets, has partnered with well known actor and environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. and his Living With Ed brand. Begley will help promote both the Envirolet® and Santerra Green composting toilet systems as an economical and environment-friendly alternative to traditional sanitation systems.
Both Envirolet and Santerra Green systems have more features than competing composting toilets, such as the patented Automatic Six-Way AerationTM, which speeds up the composting and evaporation process through forced air, heat and natural microbe action. Each product line comes in non-electric, 12VDC battery and AC electric models and offers both waterless and low water options. Popular applications of the Sancor product line include homes, cottages, cabins, work shops, basements, garages, pool cabanas or any location where sanitation is required.
“Sancor’s composting toilets are the best I’ve seen on the market today,” said Begley. “I firmly believe in both the products and feel that composting toilets are a tangible way to help reduce your impact on the environment by transforming waste into useable compost.”
As a leader of the green movement, Begley has a long history of initiating change and serving in several major roles including chairman of the Environmental Media Association and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. He is also involved in other environmental groups such as Friends of the Earth and Tree People. Because of his strong involvement and dedication, he has won a number of awards from several prestigious environmental groups including the California League of Conservation Voters and the Natural Resources Defense Council, among others.
Begley doesn’t just promote green living and technology, he actually lives it. He currently resides in a self-sufficient home powered by solar energy just outside of Los Angeles.

Dec 11, 2009: 25 Products That Might Just Change The World
Envirolet® Composting Toilet Systems have been included in the 25 Products That Might Just Change The World list by BusinessWeek.
Specifically, the Envirolet® FlushSmart VF System was commended for being able to “…combine the environmental benefits of waste composting with a low-flush, traditional toilet.”
FlushSmart VF models truly provide comfort and style (2 bowl designs available) along with numerous environmental benefits. Systems flush with as little as 0.2L of water and convert waste to compost.
Dec 8, 2009: Holiday Gift Ideas
Since the holiday season is here we thought we would try and feature a few items that anyone interested in the environment and sanitation might be interested in.
The first is a great book called The New Create an Oasis with Greywater by Art Ludwig.
The book teaches you how to “quickly and easily choose, build, and use a simple greywater system. Some can be completed in an afternoon for under $30.
It also provides complete instructions for more complex installations, how to deal with freezing, flooding, drought, failing septics, low perk soil, non-industrialized world conditions, coordinating a team of professionals to get optimum results on high-end projects, and “radical plumbing” that uses 90% less resources.”

Jul 30, 2009: Composting Toilet Reviews
You will find a few reviews out there of composting toilet systems. Some good, some bad. Be sure to consider that there are literally hundreds of thousands of composting toilet systems installed in North America alone. The vast majority worked exactly as they should.
Many composting toilet makers post reviews and testimonials on their site. Here is a nice collection from Envirolet®, who seem to have the most posted, of testimonials from Envirolet® Buzz. This is a good sample of the success of composting toilets in-the-field. (The list has been cut short so as not to take up to much room on the page. If you click More you can continue reading.)

100 people in Uganda have been arrested for not having a toilet. This is not a funny story at all. It demonstrates the serious sanitation issue faced by so many today:
“Local authorities have arrested at least 100 Ugandans for failing to build toilets in their homes in the midst of a cholera epidemic that has killed 8 people and infected 164, state media reported Wednesday.”
