Bert Wassink, a council member in the Drenthe municipality of Aa en Hunze, said residents can reduce water consumption by combining shower time with toilet time, DutchNews.nl reported Wednesday.

Wassink made his comments as part of the council's 2013 sustainability initiative, which has saving water as one of its focal points.

The official said peeing in the shower "saves lots of clean water and is good for the environment."

"If you combine showers and peeing, you save a lot of water and money, so why not?" asked Wassink, who said he makes the practice a daily habit.

Dutch-language news site AD.nl said statistics indicate the average Dutch person uses 10.3 gallons of water per day on showers and 9.5 gallons per day flushing the toilet.
