Dutch council official recommends people pee while having a shower in order to to save water

A council official in the Drenthe municipality of Aa en Hunze is recommending people pee while having a shower in order to save water and cash.

The council has launched a project in 2013 to increase sustainability and saving water is an integral part of the mission.

Urinating while under the shower 'saves lots of clean water and is good for the environment,' Bert Wassink said. 'If you combine showers and peeing, you save a lot of water and money, so why not?'

Wassink, who represents the left-wing green party GroenLinks, says he already practises what he preaches. The average Dutch person uses 39 litres a day on showers and 36 litres flushing the toilet.

Or better, do a Cameron Diaz. Only flush when you poo.

Brixter: In the copelands there was a sign on the loo: "If it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown, flush it down."
