Save Water – Pee in the Shower – Video

It’s a slogan that began in Brazil. Save Water! “Save the Atlantic rainforest! Pee in the Shower!” Suddenly, what all mothers taught their sons and daughters not to do is now chic and considered the right thing to do.

The video below is the work of a Brazilian environmental group, SOS Mata Atlantica, whose goal is to save the Brazilian rainforest. I do not know why saving water will help save the rainforest, but I will take their word for it.

The logic behind taking a leak in the shower is simply a numbers game. One person urinating in the shower instead of the toilet once a day will save about 1,100 gallons of water a year. If every person on the planet joined in, the resultant savings would be over 6.5 trillion gallons of water saved every year.

That is some serious conservation folks.

The following video is in Portuguese so most will not be able to understand it, but the message is that people from all walks of life, from a trapeze artist to a basketball player to even an alien, are all urinating in the shower to save water.

Have a look:

This water saving campaign has legs and may go viral worldwide. Just remember, next time you shower, urinate for mother nature.
