The People's Own Organic Power Project (The POOP Project)
Why is a natural resource that can nourish our fields, build our houses, and power our cities going to waste? The Poop Project: A Cultural Movement creates poop-positive spaces that allow audiences to transcend their embarrassment surrounding this taboo, and appreciate the miracle of modern sanitation. The Poop Project enables people to confront current sanitation challenges head on, including dwindling freshwater supplies and uncontrolled consumption, aging wastewater treatment plants, and an international sanitation crisis that leaves over 40% of the world’s population without a clean, safe place to go to the bathroom. Through educational workshops and materials, interactive web-based communication, and a full-length performance piece, we empower people to get educated, get involved, and get moving toward creative solutions.
