  • Locals are demanding that the "ugly" public urinals installed across Paris be removed. 
  • Local mayor Ariel Weil says they're necessary to prevent men from peeing in the streets. 
  • The "Uritrottoir" is an eco-friendly device with an opening in the front and a floral display on top.
  • You pee into the box, which contains straw at the bottom. The straw is transformed into compost for use in parks and gardens. Bright-red urinals have been installed across Paris in an attempt to get people to stop peeing in the streets. Reuters reports that the "Uritrottoir"--a combination of the French words for urinal and pavement--was created to be an "eco solution to public peeing." It's essentially a box with an opening in the front and a floral display on top. You pee into the box, which contains straw at the bottom. The straw is then transformed into compost for use in parks and gardens. Locals are not impressed and want the "ugly" urinals removed from the city. However, local mayor Ariel Weil insists they're necessary. "If we don’t do anything, then men are just going to pee in the streets," he declares.
