Gen C Introduces Pure Sh*t Manure In Hilarious Launch: “Get Knee Deep In It”

Melbourne-based creative agency Gen C has found an unconventional way to give back to the community—through sales of its new cow manure, known simply as ‘Pure Sh*t’.

In a bid to see “some good shit” come out of the whopper that was 2020, Pure Sh*t has launched out of Melbourne as a completely organic, dry, odourless manure with 100 per cent of profits given to those deeply affected by the events of this year.

The powerful poo is the brainchild of local creative agency Gen C, which said it wanted to find a way to give back to those who have been affected by the sh*t show that is 2020, spending the last four months developing the brand from scratch.

Co-founders of Gen C and Pure Sh*t Jack White and Nicholas Cox explained that the manure aims to play a small role in bringing the Australian community together, providing a little comic relief and working to help those in need.

“Pure Shit has been a real passion project for our team – we’ve personally felt the effects of the events of 2020 but equally have felt fortunate to have our health and our homes to work from in lockdown,” White said.

“We know many organisations and individuals have been deeply affected by this year. Pure Sh*t is our way of showing support, and helping Aussies see some good come of this year through what they’re able to grow and the give that comes with it.”

Proceeds from the sales of Pure Sh*t will be donated to Brainwave Australia, a national charity that supports families of children with a brain illness or injury.

“Brainwave is an organisation close to our heart,” Cox said.

“When I was six, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, of which I was long ago given the all clear, and it inspired my mother to found Brainwave and ensure young people and their families living with a neurological condition feel supported.”

Pure Sh*t has been developed by Gen C, in conjunction with Betta Grower, and will be available in bags of 1.1kg for $25 via It is suitable for every type of garden, lawn, or pot plants with pots 15cm or larger.

“We want people to have a bit of fun with this product,” White said.

“Yes, it’s a bag of sh*t…. but it’s also an opportunity to have a laugh and do something good. Purchase it for your own home or send a big ol’ bag of 2020 Pure Sh*t to a friend for Christmas and remind them we’re all in this sh*t together.”
