The POOP Project, a Brooklyn Organization Seeking to Promote Critical Conversations About Human Waste

The People's Own Organic Power Project (POOP Project) is a Brooklyn-based organization that seeks to promote critical conversations about how sustainable sanitation and human waste affect people, communities, and the planet. Through outreach programs, hand-on education and other initiatives, the POOP Project hopes to remove the taboo surrounding "potty talk". Hear all about the project in this short video from BRIC TV.

Founded by Shawn Shafner ("The Puru") in 2010, The POOP Project is dedicated to creating work that:

  • heals the cultural shame making “potty talk” taboo
  • transforms waste-making consumers into resource-conscious creators
  • reconnects audiences to their bodies, communities, and the environment that we all share
