About FLUSH
There is an ingrained culture of silence, of shame and denial of poop in this country. While the discussion about personal health is shaped by the movement about sustainable food and the environmental debate about clean air, clean water and clean energy circles, there is a worrying lack of critical discussion about what we excrete and where it ends up after we flush. It's time to break the silence.

We now have startling evidence of this, that the poop culture in the US has serious consequences. one of 15 Children suffer from constipation. The toilet is the biggest water waster in our homes. We fertilize our crops with chemical-synthetic fertilizers, while our nutrient-rich wastes are wasted.

FLUSH follows the emotionally charged stories of individuals, who try to place their relationship to this complex and hidden act, and a group of American activists, turn the poop from a taboo into something, that connects us all.

About FLUSH
There is a deep-seated legacy of silence, shame, and avoidance around poop in this country. While the conversation about personal health is dominated by the organic and local food movements, and the environmental debate focuses on clean water, clean energy, and clean air, there’s a worrying lack of critical conversation on what comes out of our bodies and where it goes after we flush. It’s time to break the silence.

We now have startling evidence that poop culture in America has serious consequences. 1 out of every 15 kids struggles with constipation. The toilet is the #1 water consumer in our homes. We fertilize our crops with oil-based chemicals, while our nutrient rich poop goes to waste.

FLUSH follows the emotional stories of individuals trying to make sense of their relationship to this complex and hidden act, and a group of American activists transforming poop from something taboo into something that connects us all.
