Digesting Design

Dearest Poopers, Our fundraising campaign is in full swing to bring Eat $h*t! How Our Waste Can Save the World to the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. If you haven't yet, take a moment to check it out and help us reach an international audience with this critical message.

In other exciting news, we have been selected for the Eurohypo AG Engagement for the Community Award for excellence in engaging the community and exemplifying Eurohypo's Passion for Solutions. This award is presented to small non-profit organizations that have a large impact on their community. Eurohypo is pleased to award The POOP Project for their unique work in raising awareness of global sanitation. (And we're pleased to receive it!)

Lastly, please join The Puru this Tuesday, May 15 at 6:30pm for the first installment of the 2012 Spring Speaker Series at the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek. We'll be "Digesting the Design Behind Newtown Creek" with the very experts who made it happen, acclaimed artist/architects Vito Acconci, Greg Clawson and George Trakas.

Until then, peaceful pooping.

Shawn "The Puru" Shafner
