The POOP Project has been making a stink for two whole years now. We continue to believe that this is a message with global potential: confronting our “waste” can help us create a world that is more hospitable to our bodies, in harmony with our planet and with everyone else sharing it.
The POOP Project has been accepted to premiere a one-man show, Eat $h*t: How Our Waste Can Save the World, at the prestigious Edinburgh International Fringe Festival this August. Croft Vaughn of WTE Theatre is producing, with three successful runs at the world’s largest arts festival under his belt, and we’re partnering with UK-based organizations that do work in international health, public toilet access, composting loos, etc. to make a big splash with this opportunity.
We’ve launched an IndieGogo campaign with a goal of reaching $15,000 by June 10. IndieGogo is an online platform that allows people to donate to your project, and in return they get cool perks.
It’s just like a PBS fundraiser–your gifts are even tax deductible. Click here to watch our hilarious video about the project, and for lots more information including swanky gifts like a silkscreen “I’m a Pooper” t-shirt and a DVD of the Edinburgh production!
But it’s not just about Edinburgh. This is about gaining the momentum that can help us to spread this message far and wide. Just imagine: one day people will Eat $h*t all over the world! So help spread the turd, er, word. Share the campaign far and wide and help us bring sanitation center stage.
Wishing you a wonderful spring, and peaceful pooping.
