Recently the phenomenon of global warming is gaining new attention in the mainstream media. Some are skeptical, but the facts are that the 15 hottest years have all been since 1980, the top three in the last five years. Some scientists calculate average world temperatures will increase by 10 degrees by 2100, causing genocidal damage to the planet...

New York is a city notoriously short on space, but rooftop farming is on the rise.

While the practice is currently an environmental rather than a financial trend, meet "Bright Farm Systems" a company that specializes in providing rooftop farms to schools, non- profits and corporations.  They are banking on that the cost savings will soon be a real incentive.

These days, it seems increasingly difficult to know what to shop for at the grocery store. Is organic always better than conventional? What if it's an "organic" product that's been flown half-way around the world, burning up fossil fuels that contribute to global warming? How do you decide what's better: A conventional apple grown locally with chemical pesticides, or an organic apple from another continent?...


Editor’s Note: Selecting food at the grocery store is a complex choice affecting one’s own health and the health of the planet.  This cartoon and accompanying article depicts some of the painful decisions that are made.  One answer is to bypass the store and grow your own food, or know who did.

In Zambia, sorghum—a drought resistant cereal that thrives in the country— was considered a “poor man’s crop” in the past, often shunned by small-scale farmers for the more commercially viable maize. But an article in the June issue of Farming Matters explains how a Zambian brewery with a new brand of beer is changing the way small-scale farmers think about sorghum.

One of the big stumbling blocks to using biofuels has been the difficulty in breaking down tough, woody cellulose in stalks and leaves…but a microbe found in panda poop may be the key to making energy from raw plant materials.

People who enter a naturally cleaned home tend to love the way they feel. I hear this over and over again. I think it is because natural cleaning ingredients infuse the space with their subtle scents and natural, non-toxic presence. On some level, our bodies must brace themselves for a chemical onslaught when faced with mainstream cleaners...

If you enter the word ‘Wheatgrass’ into a search engine, you’ll be astonished to discover over 4 million results. Why so much interest in the seven-day sprouted grass from wheat berries? The answer is a simple one. Wheatgrass is the rock star of green foods. It has immeasurable health benefits...


Editor's Note
: I always knew that wheatgrass was something that I should have but I never really knew all the benefits! Thanks Harry for making it so obvious that I need to incorporate this into my lifestyle.

The State of California is fed up with cleaning up the plastic that collects on its waterways and beaches, but who’s responsibility is it to clean up this made-made marvel that never breaks down?  The plastic manufacturers make the stuff…should they clean it up?

I know, I know, cooking beans from scratch is much less expensive, but for a quick, cheap vegan meal you can’t beat a can of beans sauteed with garlic, onions, and spices over some steamed brown rice. Easy and delicious! But what do you do with the can after you’ve eaten the contents?
