Through education and advocacy, PHLUSH helps local governments and citizen groups to provide equitable public restroom availability and to prepare for a pipe-breaking seismic event with appropriate ecological toilet systems.
Toilet availability is a human right and well-designed sanitation systems restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils.
Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human
Our message is in our name. PHLUSH was founded in Portland, Oregon and today collaborates with groups across North America. In summer 2016, we incorporated in Washington State and were awarded 501 (c) 3 tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service. PHLUSH is a member of the World Toilet Organization and a partner in the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance.
