This talking toilet ad suggests that people donate their used household fixtures to the Habitat for Humanity's ReStore instead of junking them. ReStore is Habitat's resale outlet that sells donated items to raise money to build housing.

The talking toilet ad is Habitat for Humanity's first agency-produced promotion. Reaction has been mixed: While people like the humor, the ad is criticized for lack of a clear reason for people to recycle.

Implications - Still, I think the team at Habitat for Humanity was effective in getting attention for a worthwhile cause and, at the very least, it has people discussing an important societal issue which has yet to be resolved.
