Meet Poo and Pee. Metro Vancouver Introduces Mascots

The regional government of Canada's third-largest metropolitan area has launched a video campaign introducing mascots Poo and Pee to drive home a message about improper flushing.The costumed mascots are part of Metro Vancouver's annual Unflushables campaign to remind people about items that should not be flushed because they can clog city sewers and your pipes.Problem items that can lead to trouble with municipal and residential pipes when flushed include dental floss, hair, paper towels, tampons and applicators, as well ascondoms, according to the regional government.Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart, the chair of the region's utilities commission, was present April 1 for an event with the mascots at Waterfront station in Vancouver.Video of the event was posted this week.Poo and Pee starring in: we're all you can flush"Our sewage system doesn't get enough respect," said Stewart as mascot Pee danced behind him."We want people only to flush the pee and the poo, because there's a whole bunch of stuff that gets flushed down the toilet that doesn't belong there."'He is absolutely freaking horrifying': Meet Gritty, the mascot Philadelphia didn't know it neededThe 2019 campaign is reminding people that many products labelled "flushable" actually leave unfortunate, long-lasting deposits in the local sewer system.Metro Vancouver cited research by Ryerson University that found only 11 of 101 tested "flushable" products actually met international flushable specifications. And those products were all toilet paper.So long, Frozen John: a moose with attitude is coming for the job of Fort St. John's official mascotA spokesperson for Metro Vancouver said the costumescost less than $10,000 to make. The cost of improper items being flushed, he added, adds up to $250 million across Canada.This is not the first time dress-up droppings have been used in a campaign for sewage awareness.Flush with sewage success, Victoria icon Mr. Floatie retiresIn Victoria, Mr. Floatie was an ignominious icon protesting the Capital Regional District's decades-long practice of dumping raw sewage into its surrounding waters.James Skwarok, who invented and hadportrayed Mr. Floatiesince 2004 retired his alter-ego in 2017 onceconstruction was underway on the region's new sewage treatment plant.

7 Reasons Dudes Should Be The Ones To Put The Toilet Seat Back Down — Every. Single.
