Nuduke, there is nothing in the advertising that promises "green." If that is your intent, I can testify that eating plenty of green veggies will produce that desired result.  ::)

I did notice that they are marketing a new wooden edition, while I took your link to watch the prince and unicorn advert, yet once again. I've always enjoyed the rustic look.
 
I appreciate the contraption daily and when caught out and about in need, I miss it dearly.

Yeah!  Nowadays I can't abide all that bunching your trousers and shorts round your ankles, I just take 'em off.

At home or away I take my pants off.   Pants pulled down keep one's feet, knees, and legs together which doesn't work for me.

As Bob alluded to below I use a squat position aid at home - it's goes by the revolting name of a squatty potty and I tell you it is worth its weight in fertiliser! 

I looked at the Squattypotty.  Then I noticed that we have a white plastic thing intended to be a step up for short people to reach high shelves or something.  Its just about the right height and width for a raised foot rest.  I guess I'm too cheap to buy the specialty made item.

When I discovered the - sorry -squatty potty, I was amazed!  The thing puts you in a slightly different (and more efficacious) position than squatting on the seat and the improvement to swift, clean and comfortable evacuation was well worth the ridiculous price of 20 or so for what is essentially a simple plastic moulding. 

Its probably worth the price, but i think my kitchen step was about 1/4 that much.  I'm glad they are promoting proper positions but I'm cheap.

A bit of an old log would do the same function and be rustic.  I'm going with a cheap plastic step stool.

Most western European cultures have moved away from group bathing. Some of the northern Europeans still practice, but it seems to be disappearing.

When you answer natures call, just go naturally. If someone comes by, you are already in a vulnerable position. Why worry if you are completley naked? In an attempt to reduce an awkward situation I once made a deposit in the very place I was trying to avoid in the 1st place. Hence I now always strip down completely. Problem solved.

I think the word green referred to the colour of the Flying Scotsman locomotive emerging from the Welwyn tunnel.

Quite so, I meant : Flying Scotsman = green, Dung = brown...well advised JOhn! :)
I guess our transatlantic friends would not readily click on to that icon of every 1950s/60s schoolboy's life!

Don't have a reference to a Flying Scottsman, but caught on that the steam wasn't about emerging on a cold day. I was just joking around.
