The Green Online Webisode #3 with Simran Sethi

Host of THE GREEN Online, Simran Sethi has something to say about one of those unmentionables: what we do behind those doors marked “ladies” and “gentlemen.” And she asks some rather probing questions about it as well, like “Have you ever thought to green your golden stream?” But the slightly snarky bathroom humor is only meant to help us get over our collective aversion to talking about human waste. It’s gross, it’s disgusting, but we have a serious problem with how we dispose and treat it. So unless we want it to end up in our rivers, streams and eventually in the food we eat, then we should probably get over our aversion to dishing the poop on well, poop.

Watch Simran’s Webisode to learn about pee-cycling and more:

OK, now that we’re a little more comfortable talking about it what can we actually DO about it? How does one green their golden stream?
