Scout builds eco-bathroom to complete Eagle requirement

Posted:

SHELL ROCK (KWWL) -- An aspiring Eagle Scout is earning his way up by building an outhouse, but not any ordinary outhouse.

Luke McAllister of Troop 748 spent Monday and Tuesday Shell Rock building a biodegradable bathroom.  It's chemical free.

A scout master came up with the idea when walking the Appalachian trail.

"It's just something to be proud of knowing that you lead a group of people to make something. It's like a leadership opportunity," Luke McAllister said.

Luke had help from the rest of this troop building the bathroom.  He says it will be put on an island in the Mississippi.
