Why do we use potable (drinking) water when we flush our sh** and pi**?

Green topic, use the waste water from bath and show and dish washing to flush.

Half the non-transport footprint is our factory agri-business with especially meat because it uses fossil fuel produced feed grain to feed the cow.

Don't eat meat and chickens only eat shellfish and plants.

Wow, way to diss the Q560! The M60 runs between 106 St and Broadway in Manhattan and LaGuardia Airport from approximately 5 am to 1 am, seven days a week. I get on at 125th and it is not bad at all. It beats trying to figure out the subway to JFK.

PS - it's $2.00!
