Who is a nine time Grammy award winner and an ‘A’ list advocate for environmental issues? Sheryl Crow of course.
Sheryl’s passion and expertise to promote green solutions is second to none. This groovy green eco chick is genuinely concerned about the environment. From touring in her rock gigs to blogging on your website, she’s made a noticeable difference.
Sheryl Crow has played in a series of gigs at colleges, which she called the “Stop Global Warming Tour” to educate students of our changing environment. Later she had a much publicized green baby shower to welcome her now 9-month-old son Wyatt. Then cybering on her website, she’s been blogging about her belief that using less toilet paper will help stop climate change.
Now this is what I call Green vision! Who would have thought a simple piece of toilet paper can made a world of difference.
“I propose a limitation to be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. I think we are industrious enough people to make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required.”
“When a baby comes into your life, the environment becomes so personal. Having him around, this little innocent spirit, really made me fearless about writing what I wanted to write and about not being afraid of who I was going to piss off. It created a lot of urgency about that.”
“I was raised with this idea that you leave the campground better than how you found it. We were brought up to shut off the water when we were brushing our teeth, only ran the dishwasher when it was stuffed, never took 45-minute showers. I have a little boy now, so my concern is what kind of planet are we leaving.
Recently, Sheryl performed at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom to mark World Water Day, which calls attention to the preservation and cleanup of the world’s water sources. All proceeds go to the ‘Nature Conservancy’ to help protect clean, fresh drinking water.
“I’ve been an environmentalist for a long time,” she said. “The Nature Conservancy relies on people’s donations…it just seemed like a really easy thing to do.”
The Nature Conservancy, she continued, works at the local level to help educate corporations and people about how to clean up their water resources.
This chick is so awesome with her air of optimism. She believes that given the right information, more and more people will embrace sustainable practices. “I think we’re at a turning point where people can really make a difference.”
I agree with you Sheryl. We live in an time and age (information age) where changes can happen so quickly. Lets just hope we can all make a positive change to this world we live in.
