Green News For The Weekend Volume 312

May 17, 2013

Sherry Medina has done something most of us wish we could do; she blew the whistle on Big Ag’s “liberal and unrestricted application of hazardous chemicals in poultry processing.”

Sick and tired of Monsanto and the Koch brothers? Me too. Thankfully, a new app for iPhone and Android lets you scan product barcodes and trace ownership all the way to its corporate parent – including Koch Industries and Monsanto.

Would you drink recycled sewage turned in to clean water? Thames Water in London is proposing reintroducing treated sewage water into the drinking water supply “to continue providing drinking water and collecting and treating wastewater, in a safe and reliable way, over the next 25 years.” Someday we probably won’t have a choice in this matter.

Someone in the marketing department over at Himalania got a little over-exuberant about pointing out the benefits of their pink sea salt when they included a big fat “Non-GMO Project” icon on their label.

Don’t grab for that bottle of pills just yet! Chances are, for many common ailments, you already have a remedy right in your kitchen. Choose natural over pharmaceutical every chance you get!

Think recess is just a small period of time for your kids to run around? It’s much more. New research shows that recess shows widespread benefits, including less bullying, more physical activity, and more time for teaching. It’s not wasted time, it’s actually quite important.

And lastly, a really great story. If you haven’t heard, Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries doesn’t want “not so cool” kids or women who wear size large to wear his company’s clothes. Nice, huh? Well, Greg Karber has come up with a funny and creative way to readjust the Abercrombie & Fitch brand – give them to the homeless.

Have a great weekend everyone, stay cool out there.
