It all started on the side of Mt Everest after the DGS team encountered 26,000lbs of human waste in the open pits at Gorak Shep. Upon realizing that this happens every year, and understanding the continued devastation to the local communities, it was time to figure out ‘how’ to do good sh*t – yes, we are talking about toilets.
Since then they have jumped right into the sanitation sector, ambitiously tackling a problem that we can all relate to. Unified under the boldest name in the nonprofit world, Do Good Shit (DGS), they have successfully installed sanitation systems in Chile, Argentina, and the United States.
Founded in 2019, DGS is on a mission to leave places better than they are found by reducing the harmful impacts of human waste on the environment.
The team is currently working to implement installations in the Khumbu Valley, Nepal, the National Parks in Chile, and Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
