About

 What is the Poop Sling?

Whether we love the outdoors or not, I bet we all have something in common, dreading that urge we get when it is time to do our business outdoors. It's awkward and has a huge potential of something really bad happening. Poop Sling, patent pending, was developed to provide suspension so you can share the bulk of your weight with a stable and secure object. It helps you get in the right position so you can have a comfortable, sanitary and enjoyable outdoor... you know. Even the most confident squatter can appreciate the enhanced experience the Poop Sling provides.

How was it designed?

The Poop Sling was designed for comfort, and the use of a carabiner and two loops on each end make it easy to get into, which is our top priority in an emergency situation. The Poop Sling also includes a toilet paper holder and a bag that attaches to hold our necessities such as a flashlight, hand sanitizer, a magazine, or whatever else you may enjoy while taking care of business.

The Poop Sling is helping those with Developmental Disabilities

We are proud to have the Poop Sling manufactured by the Development Workshop, Inc. in Idaho Falls, ID. Development Workshop is, first and foremost, a community rehabilitation program, providing vocational training, paid employment, and placement services to individuals with disabilities. Their mission is to assist individuals who have a disability or who are disadvantaged to recognize and to achieve their chosen level of economic and social independence. Your contributions do not only help the Poop Sling become a marketable product, but you are supporting a program that focuses on helping those with developmental disabilities.

Lets talk Contributions

The Poop Sling itself is ready to go. Manufacturing, marketing and order fulfillment are all lined up. So I would like to share with you why I am asking for $12,500. Transparency is the best policy right? I want you to feel good about how we will utilize your generous contributions. After consulting with manufacturers, product developers, fulfillment specialists and marking professionals, we have calculated the following price points:

  • $4,690 Backer reward production by Development Workshop, Inc.
  • $2,480 Shipping costs for rewards
  • $3,750 Bulk order to sell on the open market, again manufactured by DWI. 
  • $450 Small advertising budget for social media venues
  • $1,130 Kickstarter Fee
  • $12,500 Total Goal

Risks and challenges

The Poop Sling is ready to go for production upon meeting our funding goal. The last item that needs to be decided is how to put our awesome logo on the bag and sling. We would like to have the logo screen graphed on the bag and an embroidered patch on the sling. However this will dramatically increase our price per unit and we are not sure that it will happen the way we would like. To resolve this, we are working with our manufacturer to identify the most effective and cost efficient way to get the most out of our brand. We would love to engage our Backers and get your ideas for how we can accomplish this final item. Please feel free to share your ideas in our comment section.

We are very excited to have you be a part of the Poop Sling adventure and to provide you with a comfortable way to do your business outdoors. Pledge now to get your very own Poop Sling. Thank you for being a valued Backer!
