Kenyan teenager converts his school's poop into safe, clean energy

YouTube Preview Image

In early January 2013, Kenya’s oldest English-language school, the Maseno School, opened new dormitories for 720 students, and it had a couple of problems. Pit latrines and a faulty sewage system inevitably left foul odors and polluted local freshwater sources, while the kitchen used firewood for cooking fuel—unhealthy for cooks and the environment alike. High school senior, Leroy Mwasaru, now 17, and four of his friends had an idea: to harvest poop and other waste and turn it into a safe, clean and eco-friendly source of cooking fuel. Check out this video courtesy of Makeshift, and read on past the jump to learn more about the project!

The only problem with the diet—besides being environmentally unsustainable—is that it is probably nothing like the fare familiar to hunter-gatherers of yore. Treehugger’s Katherine Martinko decided to break it all down, taking a look at the ways the Paleo diet gets it wrong.
