IKEA Plans To Switch From Styrofoam Packaging To A Mushroom-Based Alternative The cat’s out of the bag, by now the vast majority of us are aware that Styrofoam is bad for our environment as it doesn’t decompose and, in its production process, leaches toxic chemicals into our environment. Yet, despite this awareness, it is still being used on a massive scale to package anything from your new flat screen TV to your late night sushi rolls.

EU To Ban Bayer’s Pesticide Linked To Harming Bees Governments within the European union recently decided to increase their ban on pesticides that have been strongly linked to killing and harming bees after deciding not to renew their approval for Bayer’s insecticide known as thiacloprid.

United States Drinking Water Pollution Could Cause 100,000 Cancer Cases

United States Drinking Water Pollution Could Cause 100,000 Cancer Cases While the push for reducing carbon emissions is stronger than ever, there are plenty of environmental issues that deserve just as much, if not more, attention. One of those issues is the pollution of our water systems. This is a global problem that plagues the entire planet, and North America is no exception. In Canada, for example, First Nations reserves have some of the worst drinking water in the world. It’s terrible and makes absolutely no sense at all. Water…

Sobering Footage Shows Orangutan Fighting Off Excavator To Protect His Home By now many of us know about the destructive nature of palm oil harvesting.

Defending the Amazon, Indigenous Rights & Planetary Integrity

Defending the Amazon, Indigenous Rights & Planetary Integrity As the Amazon Rainforest crisis persists, our inability to protect our planet poses an existential threat to all of Earth’s inhabitants. As the sky recently turned black over Sao Paulo, Brazil because of smoke (thousands of kilometers away) from the fires that is so thick it can be viewed by NASA space satellites, the world’s leaders were assembled at the G-7 summit in Europe, seemingly more interested in exchanging sophomoric insults than solving the world’s most pressing and urgent problems.  According to Brazil’s…

Your Phone Can Actually Help You Appreciate Nature

Your Phone Can Actually Help You Appreciate Nature In all honesty, I am one of the many people out here still occasionally scrolling endlessly (and at times aimlessly) through social media, and then the next thing I know the day has flown by. But that’s the thing – it isn’t the phone nor platforms’ fault for creating such addicting experiences, but more so how we practice our self-control and hold ourselves accountable throughout our day-to-day that we should reflect on.

Fukushima: “An Ongoing Global Radiological Catastrophe” & “A Huge Coverup” – Dr. Helen Caldicott

Fukushima: “An Ongoing Global Radiological Catastrophe” & “A Huge Coverup” – Dr. Helen Caldicott Despite humanity’s increasing levels of intelligence, if you were an extraterrestrial looking down on our planet, you may conclude that we are one of the dumbest species in the universe. We have so much potential, yet we cling to our archaic ways that destroy our planet and do not operate in harmony with this planet and all life on it. Energy generation is one of many great examples–we don’t have to use nuclear power, oil, or any…

Irish Teenager Wins Google Science Award for Removing Microplastics From Oceans

Irish Teenager Wins Google Science Award for Removing Microplastics From Oceans The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Google is the extreme amounts of censorship they’ve placed on the people and organizations exposing unethical and immoral actions taken by the government. They also do this for any type of discussion or information, no matter how credible the evidence, that threatens certain political, financial and/or elitist agendas. We are truly living in an Orwellian period when it comes to freedom of speech and access to information, with the global political/financial…

Report Sheds Light On The Rockefeller Family’s Covert ‘Climate Change’ Plan

Report Sheds Light On The Rockefeller Family’s Covert ‘Climate Change’ Plan The climate is changing, and it has been changing for a very long time. In fact, the climate has always been changing, and there are a myriad of factors that influence climate change like solar activity and much more. If you’re not educated on climate science, it’s easy to adopt the “doomsday” perspective that’s often dished out by mainstream media. However, when you look at what actual climate scientists are saying, it doesn’t seem like anyone on either side agrees…
