Drought – gentlemen, the answer is in your hands

Drought - gentlemen, the answer is in your hands

With half of the UK in drought, what can we do to help? Well, it appears as if the UK water industry treats (to drinking water standard) and supplies 17 billion litres of water every day and has to treat a massive 16 billion litres of ‘wastewater’ (sewage to you and me). This is simply a huge waste of money and carbon as very little of the water has to be drunk or used for washing food that will be eaten raw.

What are the easy ways for us to do our bit to combat the drought when performing toilet duties:
1. As flushing bogs uses at least 3 litres of water, cut out the processing and tinkle in your wetsuit (but rinse it in a water butt afterwards),
2. Pee in the shower or washbasin (probably not while cleaning your teeth)
3. When taking a leak in the bog, ‘if its yellow, let it mellow’.

The above advice is equally applicable to women, although may be harder to perform.
