    Hello loves!

    I happen to have a couple of friends who have paired up on a KickStarter quest to educate the masses with a simple but informational color book on electric vehicles (and other related products like stickers).

    These are two really talented and goal oriented friends and I would love if you could at least reblog this to help out with exposure =) There are infographs and illustrations in sight! Yay fun visual learning!

    Please consider getting a cup instead of pads and tampons because they are infinitely safer, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly and comfortable.

    YESSS. I bought mine a few months ago and I LOVE IT!! Although I still use the occasional pad or tampon b/c i have them leftover (also b/c im lazy once in a while)

    "

    There is something very wrong with the entire national system if, in 2014, a country’s lower-income citizens can only afford McDonald’s burgers, and never vegetables. In the same way that clean water and education are basic rights, so should daily access to healthy, fresh food be a top priority of governments. Children in particular deserve no less.


    But this would require a revamp of the entire food production system, including re-allotments of the subsidies that make it possible for a burger to sell for $1. We take that price tag for granted, and yet one pound of beef requires far more infrastructure, maintenance, feed, and water to produce than one pound of potatoes. This cheap, meat-centric, fast food diet is enabled by what meat and corn industry lobbyists are allowed to accomplish.

    "
    From the post Vegetables are not “Elitist” by Katherine Martinko. A must-read from Treehugger! It rules! I still can’t believe how unaware people are about food prices and government subsidies. Meat is cheap because of the ridiculously unbalanced agriculture subsidies in the United States.  (via vegansaurus)

3D-printed human cells could “replace animal testing”
3D-printed human cells could replace the need for animal testing of new drugs within five years, according to a pioneering bio-printing expert at the 3D Printshow in London.
"It lends itself strongly to replace animal testing," said bioengineering PhD student Alan Faulkner-Jones of Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. “If it gets to be as accurate as it should be, there would be no need to test on animals.”

Finally! Why didn’t they think of this sooner? No more animal testing, please and thank you.

    "I got tired of driving 45 minutes to get an apple that was impregnated with pesticides. LA leads the USA in vacant lots. That’s 20 Central Parks (New York). That’s enough space to plant 725,000,000 tomato plants. I grew up there , I raised my sons there. I refused to be part of this manufactured reality…I manufactured my own reality.

    I’m an artist…gardening is my graffiti, I grow my art.

    To change a community, you have to change the composition of the soil…we are the soil. You’ll be surprised how kids can be affected by this. It made me ashamed to see people this close to me that were hungry, and it reinforced why I do this.

    When asked “aren’t you afraid people are gonna steal your food?”) “Hell no I ain’t afraid, that’s why it’s on the street!!!!!”

    "I want people to take it [the food], but at the same time, I want them to take back their health. If kids grow kale, they eat kale!!!! If kids grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes!!!!” But if none of this is presented to them, they blindly eat whatever the hell you put in front of them." - Ron Finley

    ————————————————-

    Ron Finley is a successful clothing designer and artist from Los Angeles whose life got a little dirtier when he realized something strange about his neighborhood.

    He found that South Central, Los Angeles was overwhelmingly filled with “Liquor stores. Fast food. Vacant lots,”but had no great place to get fresh, affordable produce. “People are losing their homes, they’re hungry, they’re unemployed, and this area is so underserved with nutritional food.” Finley was quoted in an article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times.

    Since he’d just taken a course on gardening at the Natural History Museum, he decided to put his newfound knowledge to good use and planted a garden in a small strip of grass by his house with the help of his teacher, Florence Nishida and some friends.

    Even though Finley used a small plot of land — about 10 feet wide, 150 feet long according to the Los Angeles Times — the city still gave him a citation, which eventually turned into a warrant. His garden, filled with tomatoes, peppers and chard, celery, kale and herbs, had been deemed illegal.

    THANK YOU. I lived in LA for 3+ years and it was very difficult to find good food anywhere but the Hollywood Farmer’s Market (and it wasn’t necessarily cheap there either)

    <3 I love it when people take action like the man above

    This is how you REALLY tell “the man” to kindly fuck off
