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.
