You call yourselfs green and don't know about
Waterless urinals?


My dad, who is a VP for Bank of America, has been one of the head people working on this building for the past several years-he usually refers to it as the "1 Bryant Park Project." The waterless urinals are coated with Teflon, or some such material, so that the urine literally just slides off of the urinal and empties at the bottom. Totally cool! It makes me feel good to know that my dad's been a part of creating the country's greenest high rise!
