Lawns - Do We Really Need Them?

Another day it occurred to me that time as we know it doesn’t exist in a lawn, since grass never dies or is allowed to flower and set seed.  Lawns are nature purged of sex or death.  
No wonder Americans like them so much. ~ Michael Pollan, Second Nature 1991

How Much Water Should We Drink Every Day?

Drink Up

More than 2000 years ago Hippocrates (460–377 BCE) said, “If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.” What does that mean when it comes to water? Water has been described as a neglected, unappreciated, and under-researched subject, and further complicating the issue, a lot of the papers extolling the need for proper hydration are funded by the bottled water industry.

5 Gyres Institute's picture

The 5 Gyres Institute has led the effort to research aquatic plastic pollution and to find solutions for regaining a plastic-free ocean, empowering citizens to become leaders in combating the global health crisis of plastic pollution. To understand the impact of plastic pollution they study the 5 subtropical gyres by sailing through them, organizing research expeditions, inviting scientists, journalists, and other sailors to join the crew, working side-by-side to conduct the science, and return to their communities engaged to promote solutions.

To eliminate plastic pollution they employ strategies that work: Advocating new materials, better designed products, fair legislation, and engaging in consumer education. Post-consumer cleanup efforts focus on coastal and island debris removal and mitigation.

Don't Drink the Water?!

It’s a fact that 80-90% of all the corn and soybeans grown in the US are genetically modified to withstand heavy applications of herbicides. The exponential growth of GMO crops has produced a host of super weeds that have evolved to withstand the chemical onslaughts. To combat this cycle, more super-herbicides are applied each year to eliminate the super-weeds. Conventional farmers are now spraying more of these dangerous brews, cooked up by DuPont, Syngenta and Monsanto. The run off flows into our streams and watersheds and is affecting animal and human health.
