Happy Halloween to one and all. I wish you good weather and fun times for witches and goblins of all ages. Looking for a little reading to get you through until it’s time to put on the costumes and join the reverie? I’ve got a few I’ve been reading this week I’d like to share…
Community Changes the World - “It is past time to stand together and say enough is enough. United is how we will effect change. Community changes the world.”
Environmentalists sue over nuclear reactor’s impact on Columbia River – Something we must keep in mind as the fight to build more nuclear reactors in the U.S., as an option to reduce dependency on fossil fuels, heats up.
This piece right here, Calls to Ban Toxic Chemicals Fall on Deaf Ears Around the World, can be enough to cause most consumers to give up in frustration. The fight is not yet dead. Read this, understand the system that allows these chemicals in our shampoos and soaps or on crops trickling down into the soil and water, and make your voice heard. Enough is enough.
But just when you think hope is lost… Victory. Women’s Power Convinces Corporate Giants to Come Clean on Fragrance is a massive one. “This victory is a tribute to women’s tremendous economic power to shift companies toward healthier and more transparent products, and ultimately toward a green economy.”
There are brilliant innovators out there hoping to solve one of the world’s problems, like Solveiga Pakstaite: This Brilliant Expiry Label Decays So Your Food Doesn’t Have To and Boyan Slat: The Dutch boy mopping up a sea of plastic. While others are going back to our roots: What Do You Do When Something Breaks?
