On 19 April 2007 while on a consciousness raising tour Crow shared her deep concern over environmental issues with a public audience. A dedicated environmentalist, Crow expressed some thoughts in the formative stage to save the planet from environmental degradation and disaaster.
- 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. 
A few days later she claimed that she was joking.
