Most people find the idea of shower pissing to be completely disgusting and believe those who engage in it are gross individuals who have questionable shower hygiene. Just ask George Constanza who got busted doing it once at the gym on Seinfeld.

But there are scientific reasons that it might not be the worst thing you could do.

A university in England is encouraging its students who live on campus to take their first pee of the day while in the shower so they can save money and water.

The University of East Anglia’s “Go with the Flow” campaign is urging the school’s 15,000 pupils to pee in the shower because they estimate it will save $230,000 a year, and the water they save from all those flushes if people pee in the toilet instead would “save enough water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool 26 times over”.

How much water you might save if you get your own household on board with the morning pee in the shower campaign will vary greatly. In Australia, our toilets use anywhere from 3 to 18 litres of water per flush – 3 if you have a super dooper nifty eco-toilet and 18 if you have a really old one. Most of us would have toilets that use 6 to 12 litres per flush.

But when the average person pees around 7 times a day, you can see how that would all add up.

Peeing first thing in the morning in the shower saves you one flush per day and you’re already in the shower using water to clean yourself. You’re practically multi-tasking in there!

The other environmental benefit to shower pissing is that it cuts down how much toilet paper you use.

It’s estimated that every time you take a leak, you use an average of 10 squares of toilet paper. If you are peeing in the shower 7 days a week, that will mean that you use one less toilet roll every 50 days or so.

Go on, pat yourself on the back. You’re saving the planet, one piss in the shower at a time.
