Experts say urinating in the shower is not so bad from a health and safety standpoint.

Sometimes, there's an ick factor that goes with going green.

Take composting, for instance. The idea of egg shells and banana peels decaying among worms and maggots in a rot pile can seem sickening. But a TV ad campaign by a Brazilian environmental group might raise the bar on gross eco-friendly practices.

The spots urge citizens there to save water — by urinating in the shower.

The group, SOS Mata Atlantica, estimates that each household in Brazil could conserve 1,157 gallons of water annually by avoiding one flush a day.

The humorous spots, which are narrated by children, feature cartoon drawings of people from all walks of life — a basketball player, trapeze artist and even an alien — urinating in the shower.

The ads wrap with: "Pee in the shower! Save the Atlantic rainforest!"

No word yet on whether the flush-reducing movement is heading north to the United States.

But if it does, and if you see someone "going green" in the shower at your local gym, here's a fact worth knowing.

While peeing in the shower may sound sickening, experts maintain that from a health and safety standpoint, it's not.

"It's fine because urine is sterile. We have no bacteria or viruses in our urine, which is why if patients aren't feeling well, we can culture it," says Donna Duberg, assistant professor of clinical laboratory science at St. Louis University. "Plus, water from the shower and toilet end up in the same sewer line."

For years, people have used urine in unusual ways. Holistic experts swear that urinating on the feet will cure athlete's foot — a fungal infection. And Duberg points out that if urine is safe to drink — which a number of websites recommend for healthfulness — it's certainly safe to have squirting near your legs while the water is running in a shower.

I was hearing the other day that some greenies advocate only flushing your toilet when you put something solid in there. This would save more than one flush a day!

Then there was the gardening guy I heard on the radio saying that he stands over a 5 gallon bucket while showering then puts the water in his rainwater collection tubs for use on the lawn. I doubt he is peeing in the bucket though.

You can save even more water, when you walk out in the backyard, hang it over the neighbor’s fence and spray down the neighbor’s non-stop barking poodle! Not that I would ever do such a thing. ;)

What's the big deal? As long as you're just aiming down at the drain, it's not like the stuff gets all over you anyway. Unless, of course, you're lying on your back in the tub peeing straight up into the air all over yourself trying to see if you can get it in your mouth like the clown game at the carnival. NTTAWWT.

This. Saves a step. Only problem is sometimes with that first piss of the morning you get the first fart of the morning. Shower farts = BADBADBAD :fart:

If it's yellow, let it mellow.
If it's brown, flush it down.

Hippy rule...

What stops your bathroom from smelling like a bucket of piss? Screw that, I'll find other ways to save money

Pissing in the shower is crucial to humanithy. If you do not piss in the shower, trhen you are a GD traitor who sucks the Tectonese dick. There, I said it.

It's essential to JO in the shower and then piss afterward to clean out the ductwork.

PSA: If you ever do this in the mountains, it's important to bury it 6" deep and at least 100 yards from water. [/wannabe mountaineer]

Actually, if you REALLY care about the planet, you'll invite your significant other into the shower with you, where you will then proceed to Golden Shower each other. Just sayin'.

I've pissed in the shower since I was a child. If I gotta go while I'm in there, I'm not gonna step out and use the toilet.

Think about how much I'm saving the earth when I pee outside....

Not only saving water.....nitrogen for the grass and trees!


I don't piss in the shower.....my kids bath there and probably pee enough for all of us.

Why not piss while doing the dishes? It's sterile and you don't even have to turn the faucet on to rinse.

I piss in the shower. But I really miss living out of town because I'd just piss outside whenever I liked. That was awesome. 9/10 times when I lived back home, I'd just walk out the back door and piss outside.

Wife gets pissed at me when I do it. Does that stop me? NO!

In fact if she is taking forever in the bathroom I tell her that if she doesn't hurry I'll go piss by her car. She can't stand the thought of walking through it.

Hell yeah. Back when we lived in a 1 bathroom house I pissed outside on a regular basis. Just like the dogs. Gotta do what you gotta do.
