In a Q&A with, Velvet Revolver guitarist discussed his move to living a greener lifestyle. “You try and do your best, especially if it’s something within your grasp,” Slash told Christina Fuoco-Karasinski. “There’s not as much information out there as there should be. Al Gore put out the movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and that was a really, really good piece of information, but there’s not enough of it, for as dire straits as this planet is in. You pick up what you can, about what you should or shouldn’t be doing. It’s the most basic stuff. Everyone should look at the amount of water they use, the amount of heat and electricity they use, the amount that you drive. It’s just really basic sh**. But it has an impact. The recycling thing was around forever. No one appreciates how important it is, really, because it’s not engraved on everybody’s conscious thinking. Basically, I just try to do my part — like selling my Hummer. I don’t let the water keep running when I’m brushing my teeth. I’m a real stickler for recycling. There’s a lot of little things. I’m not waving a flag or anything. But I’m just trying to do what I can.” The full story at has since been removed.
