Japan introduces 'toilet poems' to save on toilet paper
A Japanese group has introduced 'poems in the loo', with the intent to cut down on toilet paper being used in excess, to help cut down on global warming.
By posting a 'toilet poem' at eye level inside the cubicle, apparently it will cut toilet paper use by 20 percent.
"That paper will meet you only for a moment," reads one poem. "Fold the paper over and over and over again," says another. Or just: "Love the toilet."
Now the group is looking to have its posters displayed in 1,000 public toilets.
"We asked ourselves what we could do for the environment in the toilet?" said Ryusuke Nagahara of the Japan Toilet Labo. "The answer is to save toilet paper and save water."
The use of toilet paper in Japan has increased in recent years, mostly due to an increase in public toliets.
