Intestines and poop -- always together, inseparable besties forever!!!! Or... at least until you go to the bathroom. 💩

How much poop do our intestines carry around every day? Your large intestine is a pretty awesome trash compactor -- it takes in 500 mL of indigestible food and turns it into 150 mL of feces. That's like turning a pint of liquid into a heaping half cup. Wow!

It's World Toilet Day! 🚽  Celebrate once (or twice!) today, your colon will love you for it!

There are 4.5 billion people living without safely managed sanitation. To find out more information and how to get involved, visit worldtoilet.org.

The butt of many jokes, the rectum plays a serious role when it comes to pooping. This fecal loading dock is lined with nerve endings that, when filled with poop, tell the brain to find a bathroom pronto. Strong muscles push the poop out of the rectum and through the anus and, if you’re lucky, into the toilet! In case you're looking for your own to snuggle, our new plush rectum is now available for preorder.
