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.
