  1. Was it Lula or Chavez who recommended garden peeing ?

    It's really nice of you to make this potpourri !

  2. It was Lula, but it referred to the shower, not the garden-

    "According to the Brazilian environmental organization SOS Mata Atlantica, a household that flushes its toilet one less time per day saves more than 1,100 gallons of water per year. So the organization has launched a TV ad campaign encouraging Brazilians to avoid a flush by peeing in the shower. The ad shows cartoons of everyone — from aliens to King Kong — urinating in the shower and ends with the slogan: “Pee in the shower! Save the Atlantic rainforest!”
