Good news!

The city of Amsterdam is going green in an attempt to combat an age-old problem -- public urination.

The local council has installed eight hemp-filled, sustainable urinals in the city's "wild peeing" hotspots.

At first glance, the urinals -- called GreenPees -- look like traditional planters, with greenery sprouting from the top. But look more closely and you'll notice an opening in the side. This is the target zone for urination.

GreenPee is manufactured by Dutch company Urban Senses, and there are now a total of 12 of the urinals in Amsterdam, inventor Richard de Vries told CNN Friday.
perhaps our CA cities can look into these for their problem (though I'm pretty sure Americans would destroy these in about 3 hours and there ain't no spot for poopin')

Amsterdamers are the kind of people who like the smell of their own excrement anyway.

In Brussels they built the urinals next to the churches centuries ago.

An issue in the UK is that lots of public toilets have closed in the past few decades.

Is the same true elsewhere?

I'm surprised, I've noticed a reverse trend in cities in Europe.
