Time Magazine recently posted a piece – Top 10 Odd Environmental Ideas – and it’s pretty cool. Some of the ideas I’ve heard of, a couple I didn’t think were that nutty, but overall a good list that will make you wonder if some green folks have too much time on their hands.
Among the ideas…
Reusable Toilet Wipes – I do think this is plenty nuts, not because it’s out there but because I’m pretty sure I’d be nuts after having to wash an entire household’s bin of dirty wipes. 5 people in my house – you do the math. Also, I’m having a hard enough time getting my boyfriend to use a flipping reusable grocery bag. Trust me, this would not go over well. For now, I’ll be sticking with recycled content toilet paper.
Pig Urine Plates – You’re gonna have to read this one yourself.
Doin’ the Electric Slide – A dance club that harnesses the energy on the dance floor! Too cool, and while to me this is just smart thinking, it still is a little odd to some I suppose.
The Greenest Convention Ever? – This one WAS odd, especially the part where a billboard was placed saying that people should, “Save water by wearing their underwear for four days in a row: forwards one day, backwards the next, then inside out for two more.” Hahahahahah. Excuse me, it’s stuff like this that give eco-folks labels like damn hippie – I’m not on board.
Bra Power – Let me just say that I DO NOT want a bra with little wires in it that produces electricity – NOT there. Geez. I’m guessing a man made this one up, because it’s not like someone suggested placing little electrical wires near the male’s most favorite part of the anatomy. You know where.
