I was recently perusing the comments on some of my more popular articles when I ran across a rather amusing exchange in response to my list of ways to saving money while saving the planet.
A commenter named guysmiley00 suggested the following as a way to save water:
Take a cue from truckers, and pee in a lidded plastic container (e.g., windshield washer fluid container), then pour out the urine and flush it down when the containerâ€™s full. You can reduce your daily flushes from 6-7 to 1, easy as pie.
Women might be able to do this too, although the lack of male â€œexternal aiming apparatusâ€ could be an issue.
A commenter named ikes jokingly (I hope) took it one step further…
Take a cue from truckers [â€¦] pee in a lidded plastic container, then throw it out of the window of your vehicle into someoneâ€™s backyard.
I guess this is just a more hardcore version of the old saw: “If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.”
Anyway, this all got me to thinking… What are you limits when it comes to saving money (or reducing your environmental impact)? What’s the most extreme thing you’ve down in this vein? C’mon, spill the beans… Leave a comment. You know you want to!
