Global Warming. Cls. "Do you bit for the environment & pee in the shower."

Updated on June 5, 2012

Global warming

Yesterday by Chance Dr Karl who is a famous Australian Scientist answered known affectionately as a Sleek Geek I posed a question to him on Twitter what about me peeing in the shower. I got a very positive response saying that my peeing in the shower was saving water and therefore good for the environment. As well the pee is actually sterile & there fore no danger to the shower or anything else when water down with shower water ant smell would quickly disappear.

Global Warming. Climate Change solutions- It is incredible what one is able to discover by accident. Just yesterday after years of holding guilt at peeing in the shower, I can now rest easy. That's right it is good, I am told it’s okay. No longer, will I need to keep the fact a ‘Top Secret.’ No longer, will the dark recesses of my mind, agonise over the fact that I pee in the shower. I did it (pee in the shower) many years ago, and haven’t been able to stop since, It now goes now with the territory. I have a shower and the sound of running water make me want to pee. Why? Good thing is now I can rest really easy, I am helping save the environment! That's right, I am doing a solitary thing to, save the environment. Lets all save water and, therefore, save the environment go ahead ‘pee’ as much as you want in the shower at your leisure. Maybe I can start an Environment Party based on a single issue, Peeing in the Shower party. Then again it might pee people off…

Do you pee in the shower ?

Apparently according to fairly reliable source a New television advertisement in Brazil are encouraging people to pee in the shower as a way of conserving water. Our own nation, you may remember, stood divided on the issue a few years ago during Big Brother 3 when Alex was appalled by Johnny's unwillingness to make a distinction between loo and shower basin. The new campaign, however, undoubtedly marks a new stage – or high water mark, if you will – in the world's development, and with new mores comes new etiquette.

      Hi Barry - Salt's comment about infections isn't relevant, because urine is sterile in the first 30 seconds as it leaves your body, and it's washed straight down the drain.

      I added a link to this Hub from my Hub on easy ways to be green, thanks!

      umm, have had black water from the black water dam on a farm, like enviro loos, but not big on wee in the shower. Dr Karl forgot, if you share a shower, you may also share infections.... so Im not big on that one, Id rather we had decent moderate rainfall, and enviro loos are good.

      Id add here, the bucket I keep in the shower for the garden, I think Id use just as much water making sure the shower was clean ... etc so it would be less worthwhile.

      And you usually only shower once a day. How many times do you go to the loo?
