    Crow calls for limit on loo paper


    [IMG]



    Crow has suggested using "only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required".

    The 45-year-old, who made the comments on her website, has just toured the US on a biodiesel-powered bus to raise awareness about climate change.
    She teamed up with environmental activist Laurie David for the shows.

    The pair targeted 11 university campuses to persuade students to help combat the world's environmental problems.

    "I have spent the better part of this tour trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming," Crow wrote.

    "Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating.

    "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."

    The tour ended on Sunday at the George Washington University in Washington DC, where Crow performed with Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Carole King.
    Laurie David's husband, Seinfeld creator Larry David, also appeared.

    Crow has also commented on her website about how she thinks paper napkins "represent the height of wastefulness".

    She has designed a clothing line with what she calls a "dining sleeve".

    The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another "dining sleeve" after the diner has used it to wipe his or her mouth. (Not a new idea...I've always used my sleeve.) The shows involved a short set by the singer, a talk by David and segments of Al Gore's environmental film An Inconvenient Truth.

    Agreed. Someone of us have larger backsides and the only time one piece would work is if we are talking poster board size pieces.:D

    How in the world is toilet paper supposed to contribute to global warming?

    These damn hippies make me sick... I swear they want us to go back to living in caves and having flintstone cars that you power with your feet.

    Singer and environmental activist Sheryl Crow wants the American people to think about conservation, even about everyday things such as toilet paper.

    "Turns out her comments about limiting how much TP could be used at one sitting was a stab at humor," she said on her blog on the Huffington Post.

    "And by the way guys, the toilet paper thing ... it was a JOKE!!" Crow wrote. Earlier, Crow posted, "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."

    There were only two ways this thread could go...

    Political discussion, or discussion on Brainpaint's wiping habits.

    You tell me which path is more dangerous! :eek:

    Conservation is not a big joke. It is real. Conservation is not always tied to global warming.

    Crow whether truly serious or joking on this specific TP topic is just silly. There are true ways to conserve and there is being ridiculous. She is the latter. She may have been attempting a joke. It just wasn't funny. Plus, I have met people who have said the same thing and they weren't joking. That is going over board on a good thing. Conserving where and when you can is a good thing.

    It was not a joke. Just another dumb hollywood type with no idea of reality.
    (which in some respects makes her a total joke)
