Environmental Ideas: Celebrating Low Flow Toilet Blow-up Day

An important day has come and gone and we missed celebrating it.

Of course, we're talking about Low Flow Toilet Blow-up Day.

LFTBU Day is the reasoned response to the last big environmental conservation idea: low flow toilets. Like most rushed-through, well-intentioned environmental products, low-flow toilets suffered from the most basic of flaws: they didn't work.

The low flow toilet required as many as 4 flushes to work correctly; instead of saving water, they used more.

Most people who had the misfortune of installing a low flow toilet can truly appreciate the following video.

There are still die-hards who insist that the low-flow models work just fine.

These are likely the same people who buy Segways and put buckets of water on their roof to let the sun "do the work of a water heater".

For the rest of humanity outside this tiny circle of low-flow toilet believers, we'll let Low Flow Toilet Blow-Up Day serve as our judgment on the old-new-fangled water closets.
