(Scroll down for video) As part of a campaign to save water, British students are being urged to urinate while taking showers.
The “Go with the Flow” campaign was launched by students Torr Debs and Chris Dobson, who study at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.
They want 15,000 college students to take their first dump of the day while taking their morning shower. Dobson, 20, said that the idea would save enough water to fill 26 Olympic size pools.
The two want participants to pledge their allegiance on Facebook and Twitter, and have offered gift certificates to the first people who join the challenge.
“Imagine the impact if we could get everyone in East Anglia, to change their habits in the morning. We’re trying to challenge conventional behavior,” the students said.
A university spokesperson said that the university supports students in their efforts on these initiatives.
