June 21 is the day to “peecycle”

In case you’ve forgotten, Pee-On-Earth Day (in the northern hemisphere) is tomorrow, June 21, the date of the summer solstice. According to my partner, Carol, describes it: “Pee-On-Earth Day is a day to bring your urine outside to nourish plants and avoid using water to flush your toilet! Fertilize plants with your urine’s nitrogen and phosphorus. PEECYCLE either directly or by depositing your contribution in a container you take outside….”

Carol’s favorite way to peecycle at our house by pouring the pee into our compost pile — it doesn’t smell, and we wind up with nitrogen-rich compost. Look for the Pee-On-Earth Day fact sheet on Carol’s Web site for more ideas on how to peecycle.

And yes, Pee-On-Earth Day is my favorite summer holiday, mostly because I get to make lots of pee jokes.

Pee on Earth Day

Today is “Pee on Earth Day,” which is “a day to bring one’s urine outside to nourish plants and save water used to flush toilets, will be June 21 in the northern hemisphere (Dec. 21 in the southern hemisphere).”

This is the second year in a row that my partner Carol has declared “Pee on Earth Day” — yeah, it’s another way to sell her book Liquid Gold, but it’s also a fun idea.

I’m making my plans for peeing on earth here in St. Louis. What are you planning to do?

You still have time

Today is Pee-on-Earth Day. Unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case it’s December 21. Beer to promote participation is optional.

I know I’m posting this a little late in the day for you to participate, but you’ll probably appreciate the privacy of night anyway. And if you don’t read this until after Pee-on-Earth Day, you hereby have special dispensation to pee outdoors at any later date.
