I know this may sound gross…
…but here’s a strong case for why it’s okay to pee in the shower:
First, the average adult has to “go” 7 times a day, and the average toilet flush uses about a gallon-and-a-half of water. If every North American flushed after every pee, we’d waste more than 1-TRILLION gallons of water a year.
So, what if we “go” in the shower? From a germ standpoint, studies show there’s ZERO risk for getting sick, since most germs wash right down the drain. But we’d save at least one flush a day. And mathematicians at IFL Science figured out if we all did this, every day, we’d save enough water to fill almost 300-THOUSAND Olympic-sized swimming pools every year!
