SHHH - The Poopcast
AKA Shit And Shame With Shawn. Join The Puru (performer, activist, and educator) for serious but entertaining talk about poop, fecal matters, LGBT shame and other unnameable taboos that clog our bodies, minds, and communities. Shawn and his esteemed guests talk (and might even sing) about taking responsibility for our literal shit and our metaphorical shit, to transform them from waste to resource. It’s time to get our shit together, before it hits the fan.
Flush - The Documentary
Flush is a feature documentary that follows the incredible true story of what happens after we flush, exploring how our “out of sight and out of mind” mentality about human bodily waste affects the health and wealth of our nation.
Directed and Produced by Karina Mangu-Ward, Executively Produced by The POOP Project's Shawn Shafner.
An Inconvenient Poop - The Show
What if the solution to climate change, world peace, and self-love was the one thing no one wanted to talk about?
Fascinating, hilarious and totally timely, An Inconvenient Poop asks audiences to take the plunge, join a revolution pushing for change from the bottom up, and proudly declare “I’m a pooper!”
Combined Sewer Origami Brigade
Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) spill 27 billion gallons of pollution into NYC's waterways each year, limiting the potential for recreation, wreaking havoc on local ecology, and leaving the city in violation of 1972's Clean Water Act. It's time for New York to follow the fold. The Combined Sewer Origami Brigade is a massive chain of 2,700 origami birds, fish, boats and more created from old newspapers and plastic bags. Each craft represents 10 million gallons of yearly sewage overflow, a citizen doing their part by limiting what goes down the drain during wet weather, and a powerful advocacy tool.
Follow the fold! Help #StopSewageOverflows.
