With the recent concerns with the environment, Barbie has joined the “going green” crazy. While the suburbs are filled with hybrid cars and high efficiency amenities, Barbie is spear-heading a new approach to the eco-friendly fad. She is reusing human feces.
After learning that many Asian cultures use human feces in rice paddies and gardens, Barbie felt compelled to implement this practice into America’s drive to reduce, reuse, and recycle. She has begun collecting her daily fecal deposits, along with the deposits of friends, neighbors, and volunteers, to use as her own fertilizer in a large neighborhood garden she has started, and donates to the local farmers market.
Of course, consumers are not made aware of the fecal fertilizer used to harvest the different vegetables being purchased; apparently a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy has been implemented. The environmental benefits of this practice have yet to be determined, though Barbie’s enthusiasm has been officially appreciated by BP and Dominion Power.
