housing and its impact on the envionment

I have been researching composting toilets and was shocked to discover that the refuse from these toilets is still considered “night soil” by our council (shire, local government). Therefore it has to be buried and I need a lot more land than I have for that. So again I need a lot more money to do something right for the environment. Also when a sewerage system becomes available I would be required by law to use it, and stop using the composting toilet. Required by law to do something that damages the environment more.
I still rent while saving to build some sort of place that suits the environment, the law and my budget.
Its next to impossible. I will probably die before I live in my own house.
While renting I watch the landlord remove the solar hot water system (rather than repair it) and then complain about the cost of electricity. I can do nothing. I could waste my savings improving his house, if he gave me permission but he would raise the rent, as the house would then be improved.
So Im stuck here destroying the environment like a good law abiding citizen.
The larger the group of humans the more insane it acts.
