Brazilian Environmentalists

Another Liberal crock-pot idea. But this one is not so insane like the home stay mom that I read awhile ago that instead of using toilet paper she uses "green" cloth to wipe her butt and her families. She stated it was green friendly and saved her family alot of money by using cloth to wipe the crud. DISGUSTING! -Sandra.
If you've got to go, go green - by going in the shower

RIO DE JANEIRO — New TV ads are encouraging Brazilians to save water - by urinating in the shower.
Brazilian environmental group SOS Mata Atlantica says the campaign, running on several television stations, uses humour to persuade people to reduce flushes.
The group says if a household avoids one flush a day, it can save up to 4,380 litres (1,157 gallons) of water annually.
SOS spokeswoman Adriana Kfouri said Tuesday that the ad is "a way to be playful about a serious subject."
The spot features cartoon drawings of people from all walks of life - a trapeze artist, a basketball player, even an alien - urinating in the shower.
Narrated by children's voices, the ad ends with: "Pee in the shower! Save the Atlantic rainforest!"
