Time to Go Potty!

There's been lots of talk about tax incentives for businesses and homes to "go green" and plenty of CFL lightbulb giveaways....but did you know you can get a free toilet??

The City of Austin, Texas is giving away new toilets as part of a Toilet Replacement Project. After hearing about this, I did a bit of research and found that they're not the only ones. Other similar programs are available in California, Toronto, Miami-Dade County, the Cascade/Puget Sound region, and Calgary, just to name a few.

I wish my municipality would give me a free toilet - as it is, I have full water bottles sitting in my circa-1982 toilets. Functional and free, but maybe not as cool or water-efficient as a new dual-flush toilet!
