Save the Planet

They claim that if you eliminate just one toilet flush per day you can save 1157 gallons of water per year in every household and save the rain forest. The video below says it all:

I'm all good with peeing in the shower, but that commercial is a little weird is it not. Whats up with the one where the one person has a knife. Yikes.

Wow Amanda! You sure have an eye for detail. I had to go back and look at it a second time. The knife is an obvious spoof on the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie "Psycho" which came out in 1960 and is a little before your time. I think the whole thing is pretty funny and if it saves the planet then what the heck :)
