Sell your poop, earn thousands


Sell your poop—earn thousands

Marykate Eccles

There is one thing that most, if not all, college students have in common — they are all broke. The good news is there is an insanely easy way to make $13,000 a year.

All you have to do is eat. Yes, you read that right. You can make $13,000 a year by eating and pooping, of course! OpenBiome is an organization that allows safe access to fecal microbiologists therapies, according to Through OpenBiome, you can donate your poop to save a life.

Victims of Clostridium difficile appreciate your poop more than you ever did. Clostridium difficle is a bacterial infection that attacks a person’s intestine. Although antibiotics aid in silencing the symptoms, they are not a cure. Symptoms usually return as soon as the antibiotics are stopped. Healthy poop will cure Clostridium difficile. Doctors do this by entering the donated feces into the gut of the patient. This is done by endoscopies, nasal tubes or swallowed capsules.

Even though the donating process is extremely simple, it takes a special person to be able to donate. The donator must be extraordinarily healthy. This process works a lot like plasma donations. They will pay $40 per sample and an extra $50 if you go in five times a week. If you add that up, it equals $13,000 per year. Not a bad gig!
