In an effort to help save the environment, U.S. singer Sheryl Crow is calling on everyone to limit the amount of toilet paper used "in any one sitting" to one square.
Crow made the suggestion in her blog chronicling her recent tour of the United States on a biodiesel-powered bus to raise awareness about climate change.
She and environmental activist Laurie David toured 11 university campuses to persuade students to act to help safeguard the world's environment.
"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. Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating," she writes.
"One of my favorites is in the area of conserving trees, which we heavily rely on for oxygen.
"I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. We can make it work with only one square per restroom visit."
Crow acknowledges there could be occasions when the one-square limit might not suffice, such as "on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required."
She writes that when she presented the idea to her younger brother, he went a step further, suggesting that people could "just wash the one square out."
Crow's other green ideas include a clothing line she has designed with a detachable "dining sleeve" that can be used as a napkin, thereby saving on the use of paper napkins.
She also suggests a reality show in which participants compete to live the greenest life.
THESE "KEEP YOUR LAWS OUT OF OUR BEDROOMS" LIBERALS NOW WANT TO BE THE DICTATORS OF EVERYBODY'S BATHROOMS !!!
Laurie David’s brain was the inspiration for the show Arrested Development.
Maybe she should move to an Islamic country. I understand that they don’t use tp. Makes you leary of shaking their right hands.
The problem is that she doesn’t understand a healthy life.
To perpetually constipated leftiste whiner, one square is enough.
Would have been better using only the first five words and dropping the “s” on “swipe.” :)
Glenn Beck’s radio show today: “Note to self: Never shake hands with Sheryl Crow.
OH MY GOD. I don’t even want to think what occasions might prompt the use of more than 1 sheet of toilet paper. I really don’t want to know her bathroom habits and functions.
Open question - won’t it use more water to rinse out and re-use toilet paper? We want to conserve water, don’t we? And, couldn’t this cause more infections, if you-know-what residue is on people’s hands because they are rinsing out the toilet paper???
No wonder Lance left her...
Please tell me she didn't really say that.
Poop for brains silly females!
She’s obviously never suffered from IBS! I can guarantee you one square is NOT sufficient!
From Sheryl Crow’s blog:
“And by the way guys, the toilet paper thing...it was a JOKE!!”
