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,

Shawn “The Puru” Shafner and Rebecca “Number 2” Leibowitz

Those are all great, but did't anyone make one for POOP yet?? That was the request, after all. Examples from the link include Perfect Organic Original Power, Producing Our Organic Power, Power of Our Peace (though shouldn't it be "Piece"?)...

Since The Poop Project is about coming up with creative solutions to getting proper sanitation to the rest of the world, and since whatever makes up POOP will be used in the name, how about:

Power Of One Potty

or

Power Of Organic Potties -- and use that as one of the creative solutions: organic toilets that drain out into a multitiered succession of cisterns instead of into a sewer, and different components are filtered out at different stages by plants and flowers atop the cisterns using them as fertilizer, making the whole apparatus functional AND beautiful.

Which leads us to... Philosophy Of Organic Power :)

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

I did. I hope they like the organic draining potty idea... I tried to find the link where we'd seen it before, but the closest I could come was the video above about using gray water (shower and sink runoff) to irrigate a garden, and just an area of yard where the black water (toilet runoff) drained out. (And how cool is that Earthship?? I want one!)

The video we had seen before showed how to let it filter through the cistern planters, so there were swampy plants up top (where everything was wetter) and each tier had plants which required less and less water, since each tier would receive less runoff from the one above.

I have long used a totally different name and acronym: End Product Of Digestion, or EPOD, which coincidentally spells DOPE backwards. EPOD sounds rather official, does it not?

EPOD sounds like a space port-a-potty... But maybe that's just the DOPE talking.
