    The Associated Press: Brazil forest group: Go green _ go in the shower

    RIO DE JANEIRO — New TV ads are encouraging Brazilians to save water — by urinating in the shower. Brazilian environmental group SOS Mata Atlantica says the campaign, running on several television stations, uses humor to persuade people to reduce flushes. The group says if a household avoids one flush a day, it can save up to 4,380 liters (1,157 gallons) of water annually.

    You are indeed at the cutting edge of the green, or yellow, movement. Actually, movement is not a good word in this context. :eusa_hand:

    And don't worry about that athletes foot you suddenly get, that's totally unrelated.

    More tips: Don't flush until you accumulate numerous "floaters". Yeah, the stench and flies with be almost unbearable but at least you'll be "saving" the Brazilian rain forest right?

    I'm doing my part as well. Mrs Scientist and I have installed a water saving toilet in the downstairs bathroom. Even though I have to flush before wiping to ensure the "Baby Ruths" go down then flush two or three more times to get the "environmentally approved" single ply paper to vacate the bowl, I know I'm doing my part to save water because it's a one gallon flush toilet. Those old style toilets used 1.5 gallons.

    Green Hugs for me please!

    It doesn't make sense unless you turn the water off...the running shower water would still be "wasted" water.

    Make more sense to pee in the yard.

    How exactly is water wasted anyway? It's not like it leaves the earth.

    I do that anyway, I dont care who knows but I pee in the shower.

    For a person who doesn't believe in Man Made global warming I live very green actually. Weird.

    One little odd fact, urinating on your feet can keep athlete's foot at bay as well as cure jellyfish stings. ;) Stranger but true.
