Potty training doesn't have to be a nightmare, or create shameful feelings about our bodies and using the toilet. Click here to learn more about Dr. Tom DuHamel's work, including free and downloadable resources, books, and your very own Softy the Poop to love and squeeze. 

Interested in bringing potty-positivity to your nursery school or parent community? Check out The POOP Project's new family musical, Innie / Outie.

Older kids can have problems, too, especially when dealing with dirty school bathrooms. You don't have to stand by while your student and their classmates suffer - neither do your kids. Dr. Tom Keating of Project CLEAN offers excellent resources for better advocacy, and articles to share with parents, administrators, and community boards.


TAKE ACTION

After watching the movie, you may never be able to "flush and forget" again. Now it's time to turn that mindfulness into action that pushes for social change. FLUSH depicts a complicated challenge, and there are no clear, one-size-fits-all solutions. Please consider these a starting place, and share back other ideas and actions you find!

  1. What we flush, drain or pour down the sink doesn’t just disappear. By flushing only bodily products and toilet paper, you can help prevent costly pipe clogs, smelly sewer back-ups, and harmful chemicals from getting into our water.
  2. Feeling pee proud? Save the water, and let it mellow. Sweeten the deal with a neutralizing spritz of Why Flush?
  3. Upgrade your toilet.
    • An easier option? Fill a large water bottle and place it, closed, inside your toilet tank to replace some of the water volume. Any large, sinking object will do; take a tip from your favorite DJ and Drop A Brick.
    • Convert your home toilet to be dual flush. The plumbers from This Old House can show you how.
  4. Replace your toilet.
