The global public toilet design committee
I know there are advocacy groups for everything these days, but sometimes there are groups that open your eyes! Here’s our new fave – plus they have the best logo:
“PHLUSH is an all-volunteer advocacy group based in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown. They collaborate with grassroots organizations, environmental activists, planners, architects, code officials and city managers.”
This is the best part – “PHLUSH is a member of the World Toilet Organization, a partner in the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance and serves on the global public toilet design committee of the International Code Council.”
Who knew there was a World Toilet Organization? Or that you could serve on a global public toilet design committee! I see new career paths opening before my eyes!
Seriously… “PHLUSH believes that toilet availability is a human right and that well-designed sanitation facilities restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils. We meet third Mondays at 5:30 pm at Floyd’s Coffee, 118 NW Couch St, Portland. Everyone is welcome.”
They’ve even made sanitation after a Cascadia earthquake a topic of discussion (something I have never accomplished). We missed World Toilet Day and visiting with the PHLUSH folks at their booth at the Water! Festival in October, but we’ll be there next year. Extra brownie points for clicking on every link in this post…

This is a great cause, I agree appropriate sanitary conditions and hygeinic toilets is something that should be a human right, especially where simply gastric illnesses can kill people. Having to wash and drink water that is also a sewer is unthinkable in the UK but is a reality in many third world countires. Good Luck.

Practicing good toilet habit is everyone's responsibility not only to self but to the public as well specially in the public bathroom. I always wish all public toilet have bidet spray and the flush is working properly at all times.
