Going green is the new black and Dubai, one of the cities in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) has been doing a good job of late in promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle of late. The latest additions to the city’s lineup of green projects are solar-powered toilets. According to reports, Dubai will soon be using solar power to juice up the fluorescent lights, exhaust fans and small water pumps used in public toilets.
Seeing how the sun is always blazing in Dubai all the time, solar-powered structures are definitely a step in the right direction. If these new toilets are successful, Dubai will also be upgrading its older toilets to take advantage of this renewable energy source as well. The city will also be drawing up plans for solar-powered swimming pools and abattoirs for the future.
