New labeling system guides people through how to recycle.

Think every piece of food and product packaging that bears the chasing arrows recycling symbol can be tossed in the blue bin? It’s a common misconception.

 

While these items are technically recyclable, they may not be accepted in every recycling program. This can cause confusion and frustration among consumers and may even lead some to skip recycling altogether.

 

To clear up the chasing arrows confusion once and for all, the Sustainable Packaging Coalition — an industry working group dedicated to environmentally friendly packaging — developed its How2Recycle Label, a straightforward label that gives consumers detailed information about the packaging materials and their proper disposal.

Climate science settled: Earth is warming, climate stability is a thing of the past, and humans are responsible. Canada: No comment.

The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, all 900 pages – will be officially tabled on Monday.  Meanwhile, the key chapters and the Summary for Policy Makers were released on Friday.

In response, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said, “The heat is on.  We must act.”

US Secretary of State John Kerry said, “This is yet another wakeup call: Those who deny the science or choose excuses over action are playing with fire …. the response must be all hands on deck. It’s not about one country making a demand of another. It’s the science itself, demanding action from all of us.”

President Obama’s science adviser, Dr. John P. Holdren, said the report proves “that the kinds of harm already being experienced from climate change will continue to worsen unless and until comprehensive and vigorous action to reduce emissions is undertaken worldwide.”

And, in Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s science advisor said, …… Oooops. Harper eliminated that post. So no comment from that corner.

Health seems to become a disputed subject nowadays. When our grandparents were kids, there was the herbal medicine that was making the difference and was helping people stay alive and healthy, but all we hear talking about these days is the development of the medicine and the technology that could (just could!) help us maintain our health.


When I was a kid, my mother used to make remedies out of plants and vegetables for all kind of pain and diseases. Now, there are pills for everything, even for sleeping or depression. We’ve become some kind of robots, programmed to work and work and get angry and stressed every time something goes wrong.


We forgot to smile or take things slowly, we are always in a rush and we don’t realize that all that stress brings is disease. Because when we are under pressure, our immune system is low. And that’s how we get ill.


Everybody is hurrying. People run after the train, after the bus, money or better jobs.  In this rush, we forget to take care of us, being so preoccupied by how not to be late for work or how to make more money to buy that spectacular house we saw or how to have a perfect and satisfying job or relationship. In all the rush, we forget about ourselves.


We don’t get to eat regularly, we don’t get to sleep 8 hours a night and we don’t get to drink enough water to keep our body hydrated. We forget to save time for ourselves or doing those small things that make us happy and distract us from our daily rush. We forgot about our soul...
