Advanced societies: UK campaign to save water by having people use their showers as toilets

October 10, 2014

Believe me, somebody will soon be promoting this here, too:

University students are being urged to urinate in the shower in a bid to save water.

The Go with the Flow campaign is the brainchild of students Debs Torr and Chris Dobson, from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich.

They want the university’s 15,000 students to take their first wee of the day while having their morning shower.

Mr Dobson said: “We’ve done the maths, and this project stands to have a phenomenal impact.

“With 15,000 students at UEA, over a year we would save enough water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool 26 times over.

“Imagine how big an impact it could have if we could get everyone in East Anglia, or even the UK, to change their morning habits.”

Isn’t it fun to live in an advanced society?
