Comments Off on Study finds that common chemicals may bring on early menopause in women

Endocrine-disprupting chemicals  have been blamed for a litany of problems, like cancer and infertility, and we can now add early menopause to the list, too.

Comments Off on Forsaken 60?s Trailer Renovated into a Happy Hippy House in France

Can we stand a revival of the happy hippy movement? If it means that we’ll have more eye-popping trailers like this one revived by Pierre Arnoux in France, then we say go full steam ahead.

It’s unclear whether the interior furnishings are recycled , but by gutting and renovating a used trailer, the designers saved all kinds of materials that would have been necessary to build a new home or rental. This trailer home may not suit everybody, but we are ready to don our bellbottoms and share the sustainable love !

Comments Off on DBA’s 98% Biodegradable Pen (Made From Potatoes)

Image: DBA When you realize how amazing it is when little things add up, look no further than your pen. Conventional pens are often mass produced with non-recyclable, petroleum-based materials, filled with inks that contain toxic chemicals and blister-packed in non-recyclable PVC packaging. It’s a recipe that means these small but major candidates are seriously plugging up our landfills when you multiply these factors millions of times over.
