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.
PHLUSH began in 2005 when it recognized the need for better restroom access in Portland. Since then, it has assisted in the development of the Portland Loo, advocated successfully for more gender-neutral facilities, pushed for the eventual adoption of the twin bucket system in case of an emergency that destroys sewer infrastructure, and many other sanitation related achievements. PHLUSH has an advocate network that expands nationwide and is one of only a handful of organizations in America advocating for better public sanitation.
