TMI Alert! Cameron Diaz doesn’t flush the toilet because she believes it is a waste of water to pull the chain every time she has relieved herself.
The “My Sister’s Keeper” actress — who drives a hybrid Toyota Prius — has been interested in green issues since she was a child and does all she can to be environmentally-conscious.
“I do follow the, ‘If it’s yellow leave it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down’ saying. I believe in that 100 percent,” Cameron explains. “But there are a couple of rules. You can’t go more than two or three times, if it’s consecutive, if you’re drinking a lot of water, without flushing. But if you have coffee or something, it’s going down!”
Cameron, 36, credits her parents with making her environmentally aware.
“It’s one of those things that is just a lifestyle choice. I was brought up that way so it’s something that I automatically do. I’m rigged that way.”
