Everyone Does it, Even in the Mountains: The Scoop on Eco-Friendly Poop

Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 3, 2009 2:18 pm

Whether you frequent the mountains or prefer the occasional camping trip, you’ve come to the right place.  The Ski Channel has the scoop on eco-friendly poop.  Seasoned mountaineers have done the research.  A phenomenon of mutual concurrence has aligned children and industry experts.  Since we all eat, we all must poop.

There is only one thing more horrifying than discussing poop, the uncontrollable urgency to excrete from the bowels in the middle of nowhere.  If hiking in the middle of nowhere, what’s the issue?  I can think plenty, but most likely, the thought of defecation in front of your:

  • New Boss, who is an advocate of bi-annual company camping trips.
  • Potential prom date.
  • The kid who sits next to you in science and math class.
  • Brothers, blood or greek (specifically Taus, especially if you’re a Kappa).  While you wouldn’t take pleasure discussing such an event about your brothers…absolutely, they take pleasure and will if it involves you.  Most often, in public.  Tough Love.
  • A client, who has brought along the spouse and their five children all under the age of 14.
  • Friend, the list goes on and on. 

…is more than nauseating. 

Alas, the time has come to introduce PLOO, the portable toilet for the great outdoors. Believe me, I initially shared the same sentiment.  All components are degradable, including the “poo bag”.  Poo bags contain P-Life™, an additive enabling the bag to harmlessly degrade to water and carbon dioxide.  Extend the use of your Ploo and purchase ten extra bags.

The diagram below explains how the Ploo works.  Don’t let poo, control you!  Grab a copy of Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi, set up your Ploo, and poo the view.  Any mountain, any time.  Whether it’s an unfriendly, abrupt interruption or you get the urge to poo the view — enjoy the moment of solitude between the mountain, you and Ploo.
