The Rename Poop Project
Editor's note: We were contacted this month by Sean Shafner from The Poop Project and asked to get you all involved in helping them redefine poop. We're taking it back, baby! Please read on:
If “a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet," then how do we sweetly name something that literally smells like shit?
Announcing THE RENAME THE POOP PROJECT PROJECT: Turning POOP into a friendly acronym
Why rename POOP?
The goal of The Poop Project is to create public conversation around our often private business so as to heal the common cultural shame we feel around a natural bodily function. The problem is, a lot of people are turned off by the very mentioning of poop. If we can make the “poop” in our name an acronym, then we can use our short name for some things (i.e. shorthand, some press), and the longer one for times when some euphemism behooves us (i.e. a listing of corporate donations or grants).
How can you participate?
We need your vote to establish an acronym for POOP that describes our important mission. To read more about The Poop Project and to cast your vote, please click here.
The winning name will be announced at our World Toilet Day Party on November 19th (please stay tuned for exciting details!)
Questions? Ideas? Please message us.
Thank you for your input,
