“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…
