๐Ÿ aware: โ€œthe eu has declared a ban on bee-harming pesticides, neonicotinoids.
-
the worldโ€™s most widely used insecticides will be banned from all fields within six months, to protect both wild bees and honeybees that are vital to crop pollination.
-
pollinators, like bees, are essential to the world's food supply. neonicotinoids contaminate water and soil and have contaminated the global supply of honey.โ€ ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŽ I found that I had some of this creamy vanilla (the cotton's natural color - it was not bleach or dyed) organic cotton flannel fabric left, enough to make some handkerchiefs.

๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŽ I decided to try finishing the edges with black thread for contrast instead of using the natural color that I usually do.

๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŽ And I really love the way it looks. I wasn't able to make a lot of them, but I have some for sale on my website.

We read all the time about how the changing climate is impacting our environment but rarely take time to think about how it is impacting the nutrient content of the food we eat.โ €
--โ €
Research is showing that increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is throwing the sugar to nutrients ratio of plants out of whack, aka the junk-food effect. โ €
--โ €
โ€œEvery leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,โ€ Loladze said. โ€œWe are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human historyโ€•[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.โ€โ €

Regrann from @greenamerica_ - @att and @verizon are the two largest telecommunications companies in the U.S. While their competitors are moving towards wind and solar, both companies use less than 2% renewable energy.
---
It would take 11 million acres of forest to sequester AT&T and Verizon's annual carbon emissions.

Regrann from @greenamerica_ - Did you know that @verizon gets less than 2% of its energy from renewable resources? And yet its annual revenues add up to over $126 billion. In order to sustain service for its nearly 146 million subscribers, the company has continued to increase its energy use and its carbon dioxide emissions.
---
Cell phones are a part of our daily lives, but they shouldn't be a daily contributor to #climatechange. It is time for cell giants @att and @verizon to hang up on fossil fuels and switch to renewable energy sources.

Join us in calling on @att and @verizon to set a goal to achieve 100% renewable energy for powering their networks.

In 2017, Green America launched our Hang Up on Fossil Fuels campaign to improve the dismal state of clean energy in the industry because there had been no significant signs of leadership from AT&T and Verizon (the largest players in the field), but we are pleased to announce this important step forward by @tmobile, which will put pressure on the rest of the industry to follow suit.โ €

Industrial agriculture. Exposed fields that reach the horizons alternate with endless rows of corn that blur like a flip-book as you drive by. If you were to stop and touch it, the dirt in these fields would fall through your fingers like sand. These fields are inhospitable; the only life likely to be found are monocrops, meticulously bred, planted, and controlled by humans.โ €
โ €
The soils, fields, adjacent streams, and skies above industrial farms were once the home of diverse flora and fauna, from microscopic to large mammals. But today, farming is the number one threat to wildlife. These ecosystems have been disrupted and fields are more akin to wastelands.โ €

The short answer is yes! โ €
โ €
Hereโ€™s the long answer. Congress recently appropriated $3 million to fund the Agricultural Biotechnology Education and Outreach Initiative. These funds will be used by the FDA, in partnership with the USDA, to provide "consumer education on agricultural biotechnology & food and animal feed ingredients derived from biotechnology.โ€ โ €
โ €
But, they arenโ€™t planning on discussing the downsides to GMOs, CAFOs, and chemical intensive monocropping. They are planning on promoting the โ€œsafety and benefits of crop biotechnology.โ€ โ €
โ €
The FDA is currently accepting public comments on the Agricultural Biotechnology Education and Outreach Initiative. It is important that they hear from YOU and other concerned consumers and taxpayers. Your voice matters! โ €
โ €
We must continue to hold our government officials accountable and prevent them from using government funds to do promote big biotechโ€™s corporate agenda. The FDA needs to hear from as many people as possible. โ €

Regrann from @greenamerica_ - Leaking, venting and flaring from natural gas and dangerous pollutants put our families at considerable health risk while wasting taxpayer money that improves local schools and infrastructure.

We need to hold polluters accountable for outdated and reckless practices that put the American people in danger and waste their hard earned tax dollars. Thatโ€™s why any attempts to delay or dismantle standards limiting natural gas waste, a key contributor to climate change and a waste of taxpayer money, are unacceptable.โ €
โ €
Sign our petition and urge Secretary Zinke not to delay the BLM Natural Gas Waste Rule. For the health of our nation, we cannot afford to go backward.โ €

It is easy to believe that in this day and age child labor is a thing of the past and is limited in scope. But the reality is that it is very much a part of lives of children all over the world - 168,000,000 children are trapped in child labor. โ €
โ €
These children don't have the opportunity of an education but rather they spend their days harvesting, mining, and producing some of our most common products such as bananas, diamonds, coffee, electronics and so much more. โ €
โ €
Keep this in mind as you gear up for your Black Friday shopping. Everyone loves the good deal but not when it comes at the expense of a child. โ €

Leaking, venting and flaring from natural gas and dangerous pollutants put our families at considerable health risk while wasting taxpayer money that improves local schools and infrastructure.

We need to hold polluters accountable for outdated and reckless practices that put the American people in danger and waste their hard earned tax dollars. Thatโ€™s why any attempts to delay or dismantle standards limiting natural gas waste, a key contributor to climate change and a waste of taxpayer money, are unacceptable.โ €
โ €
Sign our petition and urge Secretary Zinke not to delay the BLM Natural Gas Waste Rule. For the health of our nation, we cannot afford to go backward.โ €

@Smithsonian is a leader in environmental education but gets a failing grade for refusing to use any recycled paper in @smithsonianmagazine.
โ€”๏ฟฝ
Forests are essential to life on our planet and are a major ally to combat the destructive impacts of climate change. However, every day, natural forests are disappearing at a rate of 20 football fields per second because of pulp and paper production.
โ€”๏ฟฝ
Each ton of magazine paper made from virgin (non-recycled) fiber requires 18 trees to be cut down. This also releases sequestered carbon into our atmosphere. After itโ€™s used once, paper is often sent to the landfill, where paper products account for 40% of all solid waste, and releases toxic methane during its decomposition.

For sixteen years, Green Festivals have changed and enriched the lives of diverse people of all ages, bringing them into direct contact with some of the most creative and committed businesses that support social justice and environmental sustainability.โ €

So after a long and laudable run, in August 2017, Messe Stuttgart decided to close Green Festival. Here at Green America, we will continue our work to build the green economy through new strategies and opportunities.โ €

We thank our partners, green businesses, and Festival participants for supporting what became the largest and longest-running sustainability event in the United States.โ €

We read all the time about how the changing climate is impacting our environment but rarely take time to think about how it is impacting the nutrient content of the food we eat.โ €
--โ €
Research is showing that increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is throwing the sugar to nutrients ratio of plants out of whack, aka the junk-food effect. โ €
--โ €
โ€œEvery leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,โ€ Loladze said. โ€œWe are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human historyโ€•[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.โ€โ €

Policymakers must reassess federal policies that leave families of color behind. New report by @IPS_DC and @prosperitynow shows #RacialWealthDivide will never close if we donโ€™t take action now.

In 2043, minorities will be the majority and if #RacialWealthDivide is unaddressed, Black wealth is on a path to hit zero by 2053.

1,500 is the average number of liters of bottled water each Mexican household buys a year.โ €
--โ €
Unlike in this photo, in Chiapas, Mexico, access to safe clean drinking water and Coca-Cola are coming into direct conflict. A local Coca Cola manufacturing facility is using much of the communities water, leaving the community without access to safe drinking water. โ €
--โ €
Safe drinking water is not only a Mexican constitutional right but also a protected human right by the United Nations.โ €
--โ €
"The civil society Report on Violations of Human Right to Drinking Water and Sanitation in Mexico includes dozens of case studies to prove how corporate water use is prioritized over the human right to water. The report also shows how the poorest Mexicans have the least access to water and sanitation services."โ €

Disney is a leading entertainment company, enchanting millions of kids with its movies and toys. But, Disney is far from a leader in how it treats the workers making its toys.
--
In June, 2016, China Labor Watch issued a report entitled โ€œThe Dark World of Disneyโ€ that found appalling labor conditions at two of Disneyโ€™s supplier factories in China. Workers in the factories worked 11-hour days for the equivalent of $1.32 US dollars per hour, and were required to work overtime. They were exposed to toxic chemicals without protection or any training in how to handle them. Workers slept in overcrowded dormitories with unsanitary facilities and fed substandard food.
---
Something is rotten in the Magic Kingdom when Disney CEO Bob Iger made $45 million dollars last year, which equals $21,634 dollars per hour, yet workers in Disneyโ€™s factories made $1.32 per hour. That massive disparity is wrong, and Disney needs to change the way its toys are made.

A recent government study found that in the US people of color are more likely to be exposed and suffer the effects of air pollution than white people.โ €
--โ €
One concerning pollutant, nitrogen dioxide or NO2 is emitted through the burning of fossil fuels. Communities surrounding highways and power plants are heavily exposed to this pollutant. Exposure can result in coughing, wheezing, and infections and is linked to premature death. โ €
--โ €
"Previous research has found that the very worst polluting sites are situated next to neighborhoods with high minority populations. The EPA has typically been reluctant to use the Civil Rights Act to prosecute polluters and help remedy this situation."โ €
--โ €
While the situation is improving it is happening at much to slow a rate. At the same time the current administration is moving to dismantle the @EPA Office of Environmental Justice, an essential arm of the EPA that advocates for communities of color.โ €

The @EPA just announced a "two-year postponement of the Obama administrationโ€™s tighter controls on lead, mercury, arsenic and other coal plant wastes that threaten human health."โ €
--
Despite the fact that major coal companies are fast tracking the closure of coal plants in order to turn cut costs for consumers, transition to alternative, and get away from the stigma of being top carbon polluters.โ €
--โ €
Continuing to promote coal is a head in the sand mentality. It ignores the need for cleaner energy and the realities of a dying industry.โ €

@att and @verizon are the two largest telecommunications companies in the U.S. While their competitors are moving towards wind and solar, both companies use less than 2% renewable energy.

It would take 11 million acres of forest to sequester AT&T and Verizon's annual carbon emissions.

Last week, President Trump and the Justice Department took aim at and announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act, which gave children brought to the states by undocumented parents protection from deportation and permission to work and study in the states. DACA recipients are often called DREAMers, and must have a clean criminal record and be enrolled in school, working, or in the military.โ €
--โ €
Taking away protections for these 800,000 young people isn't good for our country. A survey of DREAMers from National Immigration Law Center and the Center for American Progress shows that 91 percent of DREAMers are employed, and five percent are business owners. They not only make positive impacts on our economy, they're simply Americans. Many have no memory of another country, and deporting them is a cruel way to break up families and expose young people to dangerous situations in other countries.โ €
--โ €
A green economy means one in which all people have equal opportunity to do meaningful work for a living wage, in safety and without exploitation. DACA helps make that happen for nearly a million people who just want to live their lives safely in the U.S.โ €
---โ €
As we've harnessed readers' energy for resistance this summer, weโ€™ve given seven actions you can take towards combating hate, protecting the environment, supporting green businesses, and holding corporations responsible. This week, we're giving you seven actions to support DREAMers and the continuance of the DACA program. Some of these actions will be harder or more time consuming than others, but we think if youโ€™re able to take action every day, or even a few days a week, youโ€™ll know youโ€™ve made an impact.โ €

Weโ€™re moving forward, with or without Washington. Will you join us?โ €

Godivaโ€™s golden boxes of chocolates and decadent chocolate-covered strawberries contain some unsavory ingredients: poverty and child labor.
---
Nearly 70% of the worldโ€™s cocoa, including Godivaโ€™s, is sourced from Ghana and Cรดte dโ€™Ivoire, where cocoa farmers and their families live on less than $1 per dayโ€”well below the global poverty line of $1.25/day.
---
Child labor, a symptom of extreme poverty, has been a known problem in West African cocoa fields for more than a decade. The US Department of Labor found more than 2 million children work in hazardous conditions growing cocoaโ€”such as burning fields, applying agrochemicals, carrying heavy loadsโ€”and many do not attend school.

Did you know that @verizon gets less than 2% of its energy from renewable resources? And yet its annual revenues add up to over $126 billion. In order to sustain service for its nearly 146 million subscribers, the company has continued to increase its energy use and its carbon dioxide emissions.

Each year a massive algal bloom in the Gulf of Mexico causes a giant dead zone, where ocean life either leaves or dies off. This dead zone is a direct result of upstream agricultural practices, runoff from farms along the Mississippi watershed.
----
A new report shows the role that the meat industry, and companies like @tysonfoods, has in creating this pollution.
----
"It is expected that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (@NOAA) will this week announce the largest ever recorded dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. It is expected to be larger than the nearly 8,200 square-mile area that was forecast for July โ€“ an expanse of water roughly the size of New Jersey."

It has been over 20 years since NAFTA - the trade deal between the USA, Canada, & Mexico - went into effect. The deal has been disastrous, to say the least. Increasing the export of jobs to Mexico, where corporations take advantage of low minimum wage and poor labor standards. And resulting in increased water and air pollution.
....
The current administration wants to renegotiate the deal, only to make it even more profitable for corporations without regard for the environment or workers.
