Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human (PHLUSH)

Who We Are

Our Mission 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.

Our Vision Toilet availability is a human right and well-designed sanitation systems restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils. Founded in Portland, Oregon in 2006, today we collaborate with groups across North America. PHLUSH is a member of the World Toilet Organization and a partner in the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance.

History Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human (PHLUSH) was founded in Portland, Oregon's Old Town Chinatown Neighborhood in 2006 and today collaborates with groups across North America. PHLUSH is a member of the World Toilet Organization and a partner in the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance. 

What We Do

PHLUSH helps citizen advocates and city officials to plan for, provide and maintain great public restrooms that make communities livable, respect human dignity and promote health and well-being. We also advise disaster management agencies such as the Jefferson County Office of Emergency Management on waterless toilet technologies for use following a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake.
