This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Greywater and Willow Feeders.

In this Badge Bit you will use water from a dishpan to flush a toilet or water something.


(source)

Here are some threads on the larger context of willow feeders and poop beasts:
 - Tree Bog vs Dry Outhouse
 - The First Willow Feeder
 - Willow Feeder #3 - Willow Wonka
 - Willow Bank
 - Poop Beasts



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - use water from a dishpan
     - to flush a toilet, or to water something outside
     - at least three gallons
     - verify high quality biodegradable dish soap (the soap usually says "greywater safe" or "readily biodegradable")

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - a picture of the dishpan with water
 - a picture of the at least 3 gallons of water being used to flush a toilet or water something
 - a picture and link to the verifiable biodegradeable dish soap
 - OR a 2-minute video of you doing the above and a link to the verifiable biodegradeable dish soap

The three gallons of water came from multiple dish pans being added to the buckets in this picture. I added one more dishpan to the bucket on the left to fill the left bucket.



I used the full left bucket to flush this toilet.



The soap that was used in ECOS PRO Dishmate Manual Dish Liquid

Staff note (Mike Barkley):

"readily biodegradable". I certify this BB is complete.

Hey, will this particular dish soap pass the test?

It says 'biodegradable cleaning ingredients," but I'm no chemist.

It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
