Ok I must admit, every time I go into the bathroom at my job I stare at the disposable toilet seat covers hanging on the side of the stall and say "why?". Toilet seat covers seem like a needless piece of waste. What is wrong with all of these women that they can't hover? I refuse to plant my butt on anything that I don't know where it's been, especially in a public place, let alone contribute to MORE waste.
Everytime I'm in there, I can hear "swiiiiiish...crinkle crinkle". It never fails. I just don't understand how it's neccessary to waste the time to take out a paper toilet cover, position it on the toilet correctly, drape the inside flap piece into the toilet and sit down so as not to shift or tear it...just to pee. I do understand if you have more involved issues at hand. But a 7 second pee, c'mon.
I know I'm not the Saint of Environmentally Friendly, but I do know any little bit helps. Are people just too lazy to hover?? If I peed three times at work in one day and used a toilet seat cover each time that would be 15 toilet seat covers a week...roughly 60 a month...750 a year. If my company has 100 employees that do the same as me thats 75,000 disposable toilet seat covers a year! Is having the luxury of sitting down versus hovering really worth contributing to ruinning the environment?
I found an interesting article here on the topic also, stating that toilet seat covers don't even provide that much protection. It's more for piece of mind. And so I revert back to my original suggestion and all problems in life will be solved....HOVER.
