I’m an oriental guy. Don’t know if you have heard this before, but we orientals don’t wipe our bottoms, we wash it. When I first moved to USA, I was living in apartments and I had a tough time carrying out my chores. The first thing that I did as soon as I bought my own house was fix a biffy…well back home we call them a ‘biddet shower’. It is simply a hand held shower, like those on your kitchen sink with a retractable pipe. You just plug it in to the pipeline that brings water to your toilet’s cistern and bingo…there’s your biffy for less than $20. You can get one of these things for 10-15 bucks at Meynards and there you go, cleaner bottom and a greener environment. In addition to that, I recently started to reduce my carbon footprint by another way while saving a lot of gas money. Check it out on the website http://www.SaveGasSaveEarth.com

We barely use toilet paper in our house and I even come home for lunch during my work week to use it so I avoid the public restroom and having to wipe with toilet paper. I highly recommend this thing, especially at under $100 — it pays for itself in a matter of months. Good stuff.

Let’s stop shower bath and start to use half-bucket water for bath. How many people can do it? You may find many ideas, but it’s not a solution until everybody takes it seriously.

We all have to work at root level, if we really want to save this planet. Many NGOs are making good money in the saving planet business. They held meeting in an expensive conference rooms with costly dinner. Why are these people wasting money?

China and India are covering about 36.7% of world’s population. I read somewhere China and India will be super power in future. These future super power China and India have money for their nuclear and missile program. Unfortunately they don’t have money for saving planet.
