Comments Off on Isabella Rossellini Plays Burt of Burt’s Bees in Bizarre Pollinator Week PSAs

Italian actress, filmmaker and veteran insect reenactor Isabella Rossellini has teamed up with Burt’s Bees to create a thoroughly bizarre set of PSAs titled “ Burt Talks to the Bees ,” which look at the troubling decline in bee populations due to colony collapse disorder . Donning a paper beard, Rossellini takes the role of “Burt” himself, a real-life beekeeper who founded the company some 25 years ago, and imagines the conversations he might have with his own bee population about their plight (the bees too, played by Rossellini). The videos come just in time for National Pollinator Week, which was established by the US Senate five years ago to raise awareness of declining pollinator populations. Find out more and watch the PSAs over on Ecouterre!

Comments Off on The Color Green is Toxic to People, Contaminates Recycling

Green is the color of nature, the environment and sustainability, but ironically the pigments used to create the color are not all that healthy or environmentally friendly. Many green pigments are actually quite toxic and even with modern dyes and pigments, green is still problematic. Michael Braungart, co-author of Cradle-To-Cradle and famous chemist, says , “ The color green can never be green, because of the way it is made.
