Only One Square??? Gee Whizzers!!!

Everyone has heard the talk about global warming. Sheryl Crowe has been on a tour about this very thing.

Crowe says: "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. One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation 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.

"Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required."

Well folks there you have it!! She is on a campaign for everyone to use only one square of toilet paper when they use the bathroom. Yeah, that is right, you should use only one square of toilet paper. I won’t even comment on the consequences of that!! I somehow don't imagine that she only uses one square!

What about all those tickets that are printed out for her concerts? That certainly uses a lot of paper! Maybe we could just us those to wipe on! Wouldn't be as soft as our Cottonelle though!!

Rachel, I don't think that she uses one wsuare either! Give me a break! You talk about the use of paper to print tickets, but what about the gas used to bus her and the band from one olocation to another, to ship equiptment, and the lighting that uses fuel and the microphones....I could go on and on! I love it wehn a "BIG STAR" tries to dictate to the"LITTLE FOLK" how things should and shouldn't be. I like Cheryl Crowe and all, but please! I am so excited that I am the first to comment on this post, that hasn't happened to me in a long time on your blog!

I can think of many other, more practical ways, to conserve the earth's resources.

LOL, LOL, LOL...I heard that and just laughed myself silly! One square of tp? HA HA HA! I don't think so---as far as I'm concerned, mot even three squares will do, for certain times in ones life...if you get my drift!

I heard somewhere that she wasn't really serious..!

Hi Rachel, I think it was a slip of the tongue.
She meant to say one toilet seat per use.
Most of those stars bring their own toilet seats, some use a new one every time they need to use the toilet.
I know there is a lot of waste in this area, some people use almost a whole roll.
Of course we could invent a new super size that we could tear off however much it takes.
Then one sheet might last for several times use.

We could even start carrying our own super size toilet paper sheets so there wouldn't be a lot of waste.
We both remember when we used Sears Catalogs and corn cobs. Those were the good days of conservation.

This is a silly conservation idea. The use of toilet paper dates from the end of the 19th century.

Perhaps Ms Crowe could use her left hand like so many of the World's poor.

"Ban junk mail" would be more useful.

If she really wants to save trees she should promote the reintroduction of the most versatile crop, hemp. This wonderful weed can make paper, cloth, oil seed, rope, animal feed and medicine. 10,000 acres of hemp can produce fibre for paper from 40,000 acres of forest.

I'm with Susie...I can think of many other ways to conserve, but I need more than one square of toilet tissue. Did she mean one ply or two?

She needs to get a motorcycle like me and conserve on gas. I should talk.

Then there were the hunters in woods and one had an emergency and no paper. His partner said don't worry just use a dollar.
After he was done his partner said what's that all over your hand?
"Well what do you think it is, have you ever tried to wipe with 3 quarters, two dimes, and a nickel??
Ms Crowe should just park her trucks and planes to conserve.

I'd just rather use the tickets to her concerts for that purpose! ~ jb///

Are you kidding me? She actually said those things? Pshaw to her.

This could work!! I mean really this could work. At least until you think it all the way through (which Sheryl hasn't). Use one sheet of TP then three paper towels to dry your hands after you wash off all the . . . well, you get the idea.
She needs to sing - not think.

I hope she keeps a wash cloth handy. I will use as many pieces of TP as I want, thank-you. I can think of better ways to conserve our resources....

No thanks, Ms. Crowe

I do my part by recycling plastic, newspaper and alumiumn cans.

I'm not a one square kind of gal.
I like to make sure the job is done well, if you get my drift.

Just MAYBE Sheryl Crowe's idea could work for number ones, don't forget to wash your hands though, but give us a break on number twos please!!!!

I wonder how big the squares are that she uses. At least she hasn't requested that we go back to the old Sears catalog pages!

And what about using all that extra water in your handwashing after routine?
