UCLoo Festival

Next month Holy Crap! the film will be shown at the University College of London's Loo festival as part of their initiative to spark creative solutions to the global sanitation crisis.

We are thrilled to have been asked to participate in this wonderful event, and look forward to seeing the results of their Make-a-thon contest!!!

This contest is such a wonderful response to the global sanitation crisis.

In London alone, more than 400 million litres of drinking water are flushed down the toilet every day!! Just imagine how much water is wasted on a daily basis throughout all of the developing world.   What if flush toilets were to become a thing of the past?

What if water-borne disease were to become a thing of the past?  What if the waste itself were to become a vital resource, critical to agricultural development and economic independence from foreign aid?

We can't wait to see what the makers of the Make-a-thon come up with, and will keep you posted as the project unfolds.

Until then, make sure to give thanks for the clean water with which you wash your hands, the warm water with which you bathe your face, and the place you dispose of your personal waste.  Ain't it grand not to have to think about it?
