Fight Food Waste, Standardize Date Labels

Fight Food Waste, Standardize Date Labels | EcoAction | Scoop.it
Food date labels are notoriously confusing -- a problem that's led to 90 percent of Americans tossing perfectly safe food because the date printed on the packaging has passed. But before you do so next time, consider: Unless they're printed on infant formula, those expiration dates are virtually unregulated.

What is Monsanto's carcinogenic herbicide doing in tampons?

What is Monsanto's carcinogenic herbicide doing in tampons? | EcoAction | Scoop.it
This is scary -- Tampax, Always, and other hygiene products very likely contain the key ingredient in cancerous Monsanto Roundup.

A study done in Argentina earlier this year that found that 85% of tampons, cotton, and other hygiene products contain traces of a cancerous chemical linked to one of the world’s most controversial pesticides.

We're calling for ZERO New Offshore Drilling: | EcoAction | Scoop.it
The Obama Administration just released their draft 5 year plan for offshore drilling. Thanks to grassroots pressure, the plan no longer includes an expansion of drilling off the Atlantic seaboard, as had been expected. That's a win for people power -- but a partial one. The current version of this plan still allows drilling in the Arctic and off the Gulf Coast. And that's still unacceptable.
