Lava Mae

Mobile (bus) showers for the homeless.
Lava Mae

Full disclosure here: we’ve gone two, maybe three days without showering. We were either lazy, on vacation or just wanted to see what would happen. As it turns out, we, and the people around us, survived unscathed. There are many others out there doing the same thing, except they’re not avoiding the spray out of laziness, and it’s not just every couple days, but every couple of weeks (if they’re lucky). Homeless people do not have the luxury of a daily clean shower, but San Fran’s Lava Mae is trying to correct that with a mobile bus equipped with showers and toilets. In just six months, it’s given over 500 showers and now has a new goal of 25,000 in 2015. It just successfully completed a KickStarter funding program, which means it can now hit the road with two buses, and a whole lot of bubbles.
