Sure. You save the water you would otherwise use to flush the toilet. However, we can't hold it all day long until we go to take shower, right?

Alternatives are not flushing the toilet every time but there is sanitary issues and it could be difficult if there are other occupants sharing the same facilities. More eco friendly toilets have two buttons - one for liquid waste (low flow) and one for solid waste (high flow). They are in the market but since they cost a little more they have limited market share today.

As for urine as fertilizer. It is. However, it has to be diluted before the application or the plant or grass may die. People who have front yard must have experience about yellow or brown spots on the lawn due to the "contribution" from neighbors' dogs.
