An Interesting Idea With a Nasty Name





Artists Britta Riley and Rebecca Bray are the masterminds behind a new exhibit in New York called (no joke) drinkpeedrinkpeedrinkpee. If you pay them a visit, be sure to collect one of the DIY Kits that will help you turn your nasty old urine into harmless water and potentially useful fertilizer.

How do the kits work? To put it simply, they extract the phosphorous and nitrogen from urine. While these two chemicals are wonderful plant fertilizers, they can cause serious trouble if they make it into the earth's oceans. But with the handy drinkpeedrinkpeedrinkpee kits, you'll be able to fertilize your parents' houseplants (and possibly water them too)!

that sounds just like the water purifiers in Uglies, and Pretties, and Specials and Extras by Scott Westerfeld. cool. and it would be really REALLY helpful. I think the concept of putting you plant in your pee is gross, but besides that, i think it's just cool and helpful.
