She was first exposed to the concept of ecological sanitation in July 2011 where she decided to make it part of her masters research. The topic of her study is looking at individual’s perception of urine and its potential use as a fertiliser in eThekwini. In hopes of starting a pilot project with some of the farmers who expressed curiosity in testing out urine reuse in their gardens.
