140,000

Our goal to find 140,000 environmental love songs that inspire ecological actions, help save our planet earth and stop climate change. Fans and musicians worldwide are invited to help us get those environmental love songs written, recorded and on the charts.

Put on the XOEarth

Fans can help by sponsoring us to write an environmental song about an issue of their choice or sponsor a song we are working on. If you sponsor one of Stele's (my) songs, you will get a copyright co-ownership certificate in your or a friend's name.

Songwriters are invited to add their songs to the Open Mic or any other post. Open Mic environmental songs will be entered in EcoLotto's $4444 lottery.

140,000 was chosen as it is the approximate number of endangered species that may be in danger of extinction.

If you have an event coming up, hire Stele (me) to do his XOEarth Man music and magic show.

Some of Stele's songs are at soundclick.com/greentopia.

Guitar lessons, songwriting and music theory are related services that Stele offers. Most beginners can play a song after one lesson.

Stele (me again) is also a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular, deep tissue and meditative massage in S Boulder. BodyMindWorks.net.

For all the life, Stele Ely.

Toe Eelot Pae Pur stele/10

no doodoo-paper at our place for years
old office paper and telephone books work great
our back behinds like it, do not fear
and the forests we save celebrate

no more Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr
we need those trees to make our air
the cats need the trees to purr

we’ve have got class do not fear
by using phone directories, newspaper and old books
when you go to the bathroom… cleaner and more fun than TP.
adding water to the paper makes it soft and for super clean bottoms

It’s not to save money
it’s to save those forest gems and tiger and
for the forests that make our air, for the critters in the jungle it’s actually better.

I won’t use Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr

so the critters play and tigers can purr

for me because I can get a fresher butt

put used poopy paper in a basket
then take it to the trash
lot’s of diapers go in there
so what’s wrong with that

it dries fast and does not smell. It feels soooo good to be pooing this way. As far as the trash company, compared to the poopy diapers going into trash cans, nooo comparison. (Thanks to Baby Boomer at Treehugger for saying that’s how they do it in some places in Greece.)

So again, I am looking for a co-writer and performer. Should the title be Toy Lat Pae Purr instead?
High-minded rumps against stumps, Stele

Toe Eelot Pae Purr stele/10
first notes

pee squared or doo squared
we all hear the call every day
but when its time for these
for the forests and the lakes

when its time for 1 or 2
choose the way of love
use phone books, old books
a reusable cloth or used printer paper

for the future critters and children

toy lat pae purr

ask your hand to play fair
=========

note s for another tp song

I hear natures call each day
from deep inside of me
those voices saying it is time
to the throne to poo or pee

is it waters from the meadows (mountains)
that came to me out of the faucet
I drank it not long ago
is it speaking for the trout, chipmunk and marmots

I hear natures call each day
from deep inside of me
those voices saying it is time
to the throne to poo or pee

for or two loo

is it the trees from the fields
that came to me in the fruit
that I ate not long ago
is it speaking for the trees, bees and daisys

I drank it not long ago
is it speaking for the forests, elk and marmots

I hear the tree that gave me fruit

ere is little time to delay
its time for 1 or 2

voices from the forests and the lakes and

saying now is the time to choose
how to do this from deep ancient place

pee pee and poo poo

yet when it’s wiping time to show I care

when its time to squat for these

choose the way of love
use newspapers, old books
a reusable clothe or phone books
for the critters and children

toy lat pae purr
ask your hand to play fair
notoy latpay purp lez
pul eez stau ptoyl utpap er
toee laut pae purr kee ulz

More notes:

I like using phone books and junk mail for toilet paper. Adding water to the paper makes for non-toxic, super clean bottom. So first, I sacrifice by using non-cushy paper. But second, I celebrate knowing that some critters and future kids will be smiling a bit more because my pooping methodology.

We – three roomates – have not used toilet paper in our house for over four years… scooby doo doo.

Our used “phonebook poo paper” goes into the waste basket, and then the regular trash can. We don’t notice any additional odor in the bathroom or the trashcan. The relatively small amount of poo dries quickly on our ultra eco toilet paper.

And even IF there were a slight to modest additional odor I would give a little smell-wise to give back a bunch life-wise. And thus, we do have a clean and sweet smelling home.

By the way – compared to our phonebook poo paper – way dirtier dog doo and diapers are put into trash cans. I really do want to co-write an eco poo paper song with someone. www.VoxErth.net

I like to help save the forests by using newspaper, phone directories and book pages when I go to the bathroom… cleaner and more fun than tp.

Adding water to the paper makes it soft and for super clean bottoms. We have been using non-toilet-paper-paper at our place for over almost 2 years now. One big telephone phone book has lasted us 10 months.

It’s not to save bucks, it’s to save those forest gems and it’s actually better. Yes, we still have a roll hanging in the bathroom for guests that we forget to coach. Reusing other paper as “Toe Ee Lot Pay Purr” is just sooo satisfying for me because I can get a fresher butt, and it saves our sweet forests and the critters.

Our used poopy paper goes into the trash basket beside the toilet, then it goes in the regular trash after that. Because it’s fairly low humidity here in Colorado, it dries fast and does not smell. It feels soooo good to be pooing this way. As far as the trash company, compared to the poopy diapers going into trash cans, nooo comparison. (Thanks to Baby Boomer at Treehugger for saying that’s how they do it in some places in Greece.)

Any songwriters wanna help me write a song about it at www.VoxErth.net?
*For all the life that loves to live and lives to love.*

Dear Songwriter friends, You gotta love this song idea? It’s about helping save the forests of the world by using phone directories, newspaper and old books when you go to the bathroom… cleaner and more fun than TP.

Adding water to the paper makes it soft and for super clean bottoms. We have been using non-toilet-paper-paper at our place for four years now. One medium telephone phone book has lasted us 6 months.

Keep Tigers Out Of Your Toilet
www.care2.com/causes/keep-tigers-out-of-your-toilet.html
Excerpt:
Imagine that a small army of bulldozers and other types of heavy equipment came into your neighborhood early one morning and began destroying everything in sight on the street where you live: three-story homes; garages; manicured lawns; pretty flowers; backyard pools; even tree houses and the trees they sit in, with absolutely no regard for the lives connected to them.

If you are a tiger living on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, this is your reality. Those with an ear to the ground regarding animals in peril around the globe have presumably heard about the link between manufacturers of toilet paper and tissue and the destruction of tiger habitat in Sumatra.

As consumers, we are free to support brands that harm animals and the environment or reject them. Let’s work on increasing everyone’s awareness of this problem and on making deforestation and illegal trade things of the past. Animals are precious creatures that we all are meant to coexist with peacefully. If we don’t start now, when will we?

    WWF continues putting pressure on Asia Pulp & Paper: Their report, Don't Flush Tiger Forests finds that toilet paper, paper towels and tissues made from APP fiber are rapidly expanding into US supermarkets, restaurants, and hotels under the Paseo and Livi brands.
    APP is the fifth-largest tissue producer in the world. Despite continued pressure from environmental groups APP and its affiliates continue expanding into new areas of Indonesian rainforest.
    Since APP began in Indonesia in 84, an area of rainforest on Sumatra totaling 5 million acres have been destroyed.

  • American taste for soft toilet roll 'worse than driving Hummers'Extra-soft, quilted and multi-ply toilet roll made from virgin wood causes more damage than gas-guzzlers, fast food or McMansions, say campaigners
    The tenderness of the delicate American buttock is causing more environmental devastation than the country's love of gas-guzzling cars, fast food or McMansions, according to green campaigners. At fault, they say, is the US public's insistence on extra-soft, quilted and multi-ply products when they use the bathroom.

    "This is a product that we use for less than three seconds and the ecological consequences of manufacturing it from trees is enormous," said Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defence Council.
    "Future generations are going to look at the way we make toilet paper as one of the greatest excesses of our age. Making toilet paper from virgin wood is a lot worse than driving Hummers in terms of global warming pollution." Making toilet paper has a significant impact because of chemicals used in pulp manufacture and cutting down forests. http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/feb/26

  • http://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2010/04/your-i

    Last year, the New York Times reported on the staggering environmental impact of making super-soft toilet paper from virgin forests. But now, according to this week's cover story in Chemical & Engineering News, it's getting harder to make soft TP out of recycled paper: As consumers ditch magazines, newspapers, and paper bills in favor of the electronic versions, companies that produce recycled paper products are facing a shortage of raw materials.

    One major problem is offices are using less white paper—which is coveted by producers of recycled toilet paper because its long fibers make for a softer product. That means manufacturers are now using lower-quality recycled paper, so the fibers are shorter and produce a rougher product—and the more times paper gets recycled, the shorter those fibers become. The challenge, then, is for companies to figure out how to do more with less:

    Chemical companies that supply papermakers with bleaching and processing aids are introducing new products to make those fibers go further. The best of them also reduce costs by helping paper mills recycle water and save energy.

  • Mr. Whipple Left It Out: Soft Is Rough on Forests By LESLIE KAUFMAN http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/26/science/earth/2
    Americans like their toilet tissue soft: exotic confections that are silken, thick and hot-air-fluffed.
    The national obsession with soft paper has driven the growth of brands like Cottonelle Ultra, Quilted Northern Ultra and Charmin Ultra — which in 2008 alone increased its sales by 40 percent in some markets, according to Information Resources, Inc., a marketing research firm.

    But fluffiness comes at a price: millions of trees harvested in North America and in Latin American countries, including some percentage of trees from rare old-growth forests in Canada. Although toilet tissue can be made at similar cost from recycled material, it is the fiber taken from standing trees that help give it that plush feel, and most large manufacturers rely on them.
