A new Smartphone app and website released in Poland allows residents of a southern town to track their 'delivery' from the moment they flush their toilet to when it reaches sewage works.
The website and application are entitled 'Where's my poo?' and were designed by a Polish water works company.
Józef Natonek, Director of Jaworzno MPWiK (Municipal Water and Sewage Company), told Reuters the aim was to provoke interest in the sewage works of the town and to provide locals with an environmental education.
'The application was supposed to raise people's awareness and it did just this,' he said.
'Thanks to this many people are talking about the sewers.
'How can you get people to start talking about the sewers, how can you get young people to speak about it?
'It's very difficult but we did it thanks to using something that interests them.
'It's something that you can use on your phone or your computer.
'They can compare with one another about the differing speeds that their packages reach their destination, so they talk about it.
'I am convinced that in a few years these young people will take part in some of the decisions that are made in this city, for instance about the sewage network.'
The local community has been enthusiastic about the website.
Kamil Gacek, a Local High School student, has the app on his phone.
'I would never think about how long it takes for this to get there, how long the distance is in the sewers, what speed it is going but this application simply shows that. It's interesting,' he said.
The website can also be accessed through Facebook.
