Comments Off on 3,800 critically endangered turtles found stacked in a shipping crate headed for China

For much of the 20th century, the existence of the Philippine forest turtle was little more than a myth, fueled by a spare handful of specimens. But in 2001, a survey of the Palawan islands uncovered relatively large numbers of these freshwater turtles in their natural habitat. Classified as critically endangered, experts believed that there were around 3,000 Philippine forest turtles alive. That was, until the shocking discovery of some 3,800 of the turtles stacked roughly in a shipping crate bound for China, raising the question: did experts underestimate the turtle population, or did traffickers capture an entire species from the wild?

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.
