New Food Label Expires Along With Food, Could Save Tons of Food Waste

Comments Off on New Food Label Expires Along With Food, Could Save Tons of Food Waste

If you follow the expiry dates on your food, you could be throwing out almost 40 percent of what you buy each month – the average person throws out a shocking total of 20 pounds of expired food each month. However according to Grist , food date labels that say things like ‘best-before,’ or ‘enjoy by’ are just guidelines from the growers or manufacturers that say when their food will remain at its best – it’s often fine for eating days or weeks past the date marked on the label. Bump Mark is a new food label that could change all that.

INFOGRAPHIC: Demystifying “Natural” and “Organic” Labels on Personal Care Products

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Demystifying “Natural” and “Organic” Labels on Personal Care Products

When you go grocery shopping, chances are that you notice that most (if not all) produce items have labels on them to signify whether they’re organic or not. Well, just like food, personal care products have a variety of different labels that get slapped onto them as well. These labels are meant to inform customers about the fabulousness within said products, but certain terms are often used to obfuscate, rather than clarify. A blanket term such as “ botanical ” may just mean that a tiny percentage of the ingredients are plant-based, while “natural” can imply that one of the additives came from nature once upon a time… regardless of how much it was altered before being used in that face scrub you’re holding. This label cheat sheet should help you to navigate your way through the local health food store’s beauty product aisle so you can find just what it is you’re looking for, and feel good about using it.

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen Designs Solar-Powered Global Climate Change Pavilion

Prolific designer Michael Jantzen completed a conceptual proposal that uses engaging design to spur greater global climate change debate and education. Titled the Global Climate Change Pavilion, this large public structure houses research and interactive exhibits that explore the relationship between the earth and its rapidly warming climate. Wave-shaped canopies topped by solar panels surround the globular pavilion and provide shade and shelter. The solar-powered exhibition dome is made of self-cleaning photocatalytic concrete and is also designed with rainwater collection and reuse systems. + Michael Jantzen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on EPA’s New Fuel Economy Labels Open For Public Comment

The US Environmental Protection Agency has released its new vehicle fuel economy labels which are proposed to replace the current vehicle labels starting with the 2012 model year. The new labels provide consumers with additional information and a comparative ranking for new cars, with a comparison bar (not unlike what is now provided on appliances like refrigerators and clothes dryers) showing where the particular vehicle falls along the line from best to worst in fuel efficiency, greenhouse gasses, and other pollutants. Two alternative forms of labels (plus a third option which is not proposed for use at this time) are now open for public comment .
