Do you consider access to toilets and hygiene a human right?  Aren’t public restrooms essential to urban livability, personal dignity, and public health?  Do you live in a community whose sewered systems are vulnerable to seismic events, climate change or sea level rise?  Would you like to join us in working for sustainable sanitation that restores health to our waters and our soils?

Yes?  Then we’d love to hear from you.

    Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human, or PHLUSH, is an all-volunteer advocacy group founded in Portland's Old Town Chinatown. We collaborate with grassroots organizations, environmental activists, code officials and city planners.

    PHLUSH is a member of the World Toilet Organization and a partner in the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance.

    PHLUSH believes that toilet availability is a human right and that well-designed sanitation systems restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils.
