Should science museums be backed by Big Oil and climate change deniers?  Speak out if you don't think this is appropriate!

Disposable tampons aren't sustainable, but do women want to talk about it?

"Many critics say that this cultural taboo has, at least in part, helped the disposable feminine hygiene industry thrive. Single use tampons and pads became available in much of the developed world in the first half of the 20th century. Today tampons are used by over 100 million women worldwide, while pads, which are much more widespread on a global scale due to a cultural aversion to tampons in many regions, comprise a multi-billion dollar industry."

The article brings up some good points.  This is the most interesting thing that we learned -- the FDA categorizes feminine hygiene products as medical devices.  Therefore companies selling and manufacturing these products do not have to disclose ingredients like bleach, pesticides, etc.  So not only do people not have the right to know what is in their food, but women do not know what they are putting into their bodies!  We could all put pressure on companies that sell these disposable products!

MANUFACTURED QUAKES  Earthquakes caused by fracking are being called "manufactured quakes," which seems appropriate.  We hear about these earthquakes in Oklahoma all of the time from residents.  At least in California it is a natural occurrence!

Recycled water from fracking is being used to water crops in California now.  I don't know if this is good or bad.

Argan oil: the cost of the beauty industry's latest wonder ingredient

"Argan oil has gone from a natural, tribal ingredient to one of the most prized oils in the world as cosmetics companies have woken up to its anti-ageing properties. The plant oil is produced from the kernels found inside the argan nut, which is found inside the fruit of the argan tree, endemic to Morocco."

Did you know that Arbor Day was officially celebrated on Friday in most of the U.S.?  It's not too late to celebrate by planting a tree (in a good spot)!  Trees add beauty, shade and oxygen to the air!  What else are trees "good" for?

In celebration of Arbor Day, it’s common to plant a tree.
