    Would you wee in the shower to save water?

    Or do you already do it?

    Two students at the University of East Anglia have started a campaign called #gowiththeflow encouraging their colleagues on campus to urinate in the shower to save water.

    The idea is that if everyone on the campus, some 15,000 students, peed in the shower in the morning they would each save the 12 litres of water used each time the toilet is flushed.

    The two students, Chris Dobson and Debs Torr, want those taking part to announce their support on Facebook and Twitter, and the first 15 to do so will be offered a £10 gift voucher.

    Chris said: “We’ve done the maths; the 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 size 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.”

    But Mr Dobson conceded that not everyone was a fan of the idea. “The campaign has been really divisive – people either seem to love it or hate it.”

    The pair are representing UEA in Npower’s Future Leader’s Challenge which encourages students to come up with an environmental initiative on campus. They said they were inspired by a similar initiative in Brazil by the eco-group SOS Mata Atlantica, who encourage people to urinate during their first shower of the day.

    In East Anglia, saving water is even more important than in other places – the area receives a third less rainfall on average than the rest of England and has one of the highest rates of housing development.

    Want to save water? Don't shower. Just piss into the wind and scrub.

    If They all back out a bad boy in the shower think of all the toilet paper saved as well. I bet there parents are delighted with the quality education they are receiving at uni.

    More to the point who told them not to pee in the shower in the first place.

    Downside of this? What about the people who pee and don't shower, but then start showering?

    yea but before that I would pee on my feet in the shower.

    Urine is blood by-product of the kidneys. Full of useful nutrients, hormones, enzymes, minerals, vitamins etc. What little toxin excreted only strengthens the immune system.

    Sheesh I piss in the shower almost every morning and sometimes in the kitchen sink as well, if I'm too lazy to walk to either bathroom.. Of course I live alone..

    Strike that, actually I live with two thai teen-aged gurlz who are twinz to boot! They look so much alike that sometimes I can't tell one from the other, especially in the dark. Honestly, they don't seem to mind me pissing in the shower, but if they're in the kitchen when I piss in the sink they stare at me.

    Whoops, forgot to mention those twin thai gurlz I live with are Siamese cats.. Had you there for a while huh?

    Anecdotally and off-topic the colloquial thai phrase for "water sports" or "golden showers" is ฉี่รดกัน, while the official term for that particular peccadillo is อาการชอบน้ำปัสสาวะ just in case you wanted to know...

    Quite right Fondles, I don't know what all the fuss is about ,Every one pisses whilst having a show , I remember a few months ago when my guts was upset through eating dubious shell fish (Mussels) I farted and followed through some thing awful ,unperturbed I just cleaned my arse with the shower head and some shampoo ,it all went down the same plug hole ,never to be seen or smelled again

    I piss in the shower regularly and occasionally in the kitchen sink, not forgetting to lift up any dirty plates and dishes in the process.

    Typical of "civilised" plumbing as related to toilets.

    12 litres per flush.

    I've always pissed in the shower. Wash hair and piss has become a 5am morning routine for me. Fuck saving water. It's the natural thing to do.

    Pissing in the hand basin, placed next to the toilet, always amazes My Son, that Daddy can piss quiet happily in the hand basin, while he pisses in a low down toilet at the same time, now My basin flush uses less water.
    Feke, did not have to go to University to work that one out.
