If you want to avoid BPA, avoid these brands like the plague..

Comments Off on If you want to avoid BPA, avoid these brands like the plague..

I’m often on the lookout for healthy food that travels well, but I’m terrified of canned foods that contain the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol-A (BPA). Clearly, I’m not alone. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has released a new report analyzing which brands are still lining their cans with BPA . While the FDA has failed to regulate BPA despite potential health risks associated with the chemical, including increased risk of brain and heart problems, as well as cancer, obesity and attention deficit disorder,  informed consumers are avoiding it. Between January and August last year, EWG surveyed 252 brands produced by 119 companies. They found only 31 brands, or 12 percent of all the brands they sampled, used BPA-free cans for all of their canned products and 34 brands used BPA-free cans for one or more of their canned products. All other brands either use BPA or failed to disclose whether or not they are using it. Read the rest of If you want to avoid BPA, avoid these brands like the plague..

Arizona non-profit rescues 35 million pounds of produce ditched at U.S. border each year

Comments Off on Arizona non-profit rescues 35 million pounds of produce ditched at U.S. border each year

Food waste is a huge problem. Approximately 40 percent of all food is thrown away , and according to the  Food and Agriculture Organization  of the United Nations (FAO), food waste alone is the third largest source of all greenhouse gas emissions . One significant source of waste is the produce that is sent to landfill for failing to pass strict inspections when it is imported into the US—products with even the slightest imperfection are discarded at the border. One Arizona non-profit, Borderlands Food Bank , undertook to rescue some of this food and redirect it to families in need, and is saving 35-40 million pounds of perfectly good, safe produce each year that would otherwise have simply been thrown in the trash.

Invisible canoe offers full view of the world under the sea

Comments Off on Invisible canoe offers full view of the world under the sea

Move over, glass-bottom boats: this canoe/kayak hybrid is entirely transparent. You might feel like Wonder Woman cruising in her invisible jet as you glide through the waters with a full view of everything beneath the surface. The canoe is made from the same material used for the cockpits of fighter jets, can support up to 425lbs, and displaces a greater amount of water for more surface stability and better balance. These things are really important when your vessel is transparent, as it might be more difficult to find your canoe should you manage to capsize it. The included paddles, however, are not transparent. This amazing watercraft can be yours for the cool price of $25,000. + Hammacher Schlemmer Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: boat , canoe , clear , fun , gifts , Kayak , ocean , recreation , river , see-through , transparent , unique products , watercraft
