Austin Just Banned Restaurants From Throwing Food Away | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Restaurants in Austin can't throw away food anymore. A new law starting this month requires restaurants to compost food scraps or give them away, as part of the city's Universal Recycling Ordinance (URO) that aims to make the southern city more sustainable.
As part of Texas’ Zero Waste by 2040 pledge, all food enterprises (which includes restaurants, shops, and farm markets that serve made-to-order food, as well as places that prepare and process food) will need to use alternatives from sending organic materials to landfills. The measure also requires that employees receive training about handling the waste.

7 Books by Women About the Climate for International Women's Day

7 Books by Women About the Climate for International Women's Day | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

This Sunday, March 8 marks International Women’s Day, an annual holiday that has been observed for more than a century. Women are at the forefront of so many social justice movements, and climate activism is no exception. From the onset of the U.S. environmental movement in the 1960s up until present-day, many women have led the way by writing books about how everything from the chemical industry to capitalism to conspicuous consumption impacts planet Earth. 
So if you're looking for a way to celebrate International Women’s Day this year, consider honoring the most important woman of them all — Mother Earth, of course — by reading a book about protecting her.

5 Simple Ways to Start Living A Zero Waste Life In Egypt – The Daily Crisp | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
If you’re familiar with the amount of waste that is produced in your house on a daily basis, then the notion of “Zero Waste” probably sounds intimidating. From your toiletries down to how you store your food, we all unknowingly create a ton of unnecessary waste every day. By the next morning, the trash is out of the house and thus out of sight out of mind. The “Zero-Waste” movement aims to raise awareness about the fact that most of your waste is not biodegradable, and cannot be recycled. This is why we should all try to produce less waste, which in the long term means creating less of the products that eliminate toxins in our environment and pollute our planet.
