    Why You Should Pee As You Shower

    You should be peeing in your shower – not just for the liberating, rebellious adrenaline rush that you may or may not get from it, but because you could save the planet, just a little bit, by doing so.

    The article goes through the math as to why it's more environmentally friendly to pee in the shower than the toilet.

    The math is compelling...but not nearly compelling enough for me to adopt this practice!

    During the time you are peeing in the shower, the water continues to flow from the shower head but you are concentrating on peeing, not on showering. The added length of time you are in the shower because you peed there means more water consumed. I would say that, over the populaton as a whole, the average amount of extra water used in the shower while peeing is roughly equal to the amount of water used to flush the toilet had the person held his pee until after he got out of the shower.

    Sometimes I just stand there and let the water fall over me, so I might as well pee.

    I am very thankful that this is something on which I do not have to concentrate.
