Starting January 1, 2019, New York City stores and foodservice businesses can no longer offer, sell or possess single-use foam food containers, such as foam takeout clamshells, cups, plates, bowls and trays. Additionally, manufacturers and stores may no longer sell or offer for sale loose fill packaging (packing peanuts) in the city. This law was enacted because single-use foam items were found to be not recyclable. These items are collected as trash in the city. There are many recyclable alternative packaging options including paper, plastic, aluminum and compostable products. “Foam cannot be recycled, plain and simple,” said City of New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY) Commissioner Kathryn Garcia in a statement. “It’s a problematic material when it’s in our waste stream. Foam is a source of neighborhood litter, and it is hazardous to marine life. It’s a lightweight material that clogs storm drains and can also end up on our beaches a...

Trump’s USDA is letting factories with troubling safety records slaughter chickens even faster

Sixty miles northeast of Atlanta, a chicken statue atop a 25-foot monument proclaims the small city of Gainesville, Georgia, the “Poultry Capital of the World.” In the rolling hills outside of town, white feathers trail the trucks turning into a slaughterhouse operated by a local company called Fieldale Farms. The Fieldale factory employs about 1,900 people. A lawn sign advertises jobs for $11-plus an hour and a big banner shouts “Think Safe, Work Safe.” But in recent years, according to federal safety records obtained by ProPublica, the factory has been the site of several grisly accidents, resulting in hospitalizations, amputations and death. Those accidents didn’t prevent Fieldale from getting special permission from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to speed up its processing lines. Chicken companies have long wanted to operate their plants faster so that they can boost profits, either by producing more chickens or using less labor. But speeding up increases the risks to employees already working in dangerous conditions, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. It’s been only a few months s...

The founder of ElevenLabs on wellness myths, health trends and launching your own business

ElevenLabs, an innovative business that produces 100 per cent vegan plant-based protein powders, made with real food ingredients, was founded by University of Adelaide graduate Amy Hancock, after she discovered just how difficult it was to travel with nutrient-dense foods and supplements when on the go.  With a First Class Honours Degree in Pharmaceutical and Chemical Engineering, and experience working in research and development at Ernst & Young and a national skincare company, before moving to a process, production and project engineer and systems analyst role, Hancock decided to found ElevenLabs, a now award-winning brand. Here, the young entrepreneur shares her story and gives Vogue an insight into the intricacies of launching your own business, building a respected brand, and the challenges that come with working within the wellness industry. How did you come to the decision to launch ElevenLabs?“ElevenLabs emerged from a personal need of mine. From a young age healthy eating was part of my lifestyle thanks to growing up on a farm and having a mother who was a chef.”  “Early on in my career, I was a fly-in-fly-out engineer. Imagine a remote desert environment where it ...

What if not single-use plastics? Why not leaf cutlery?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s exhortation to Indians to ban single-use plastics has once again put the spotlight on traditional Indian leaf cutlery as a possible alternative. The prime minister recently talked about the menace of single-use plastics in his radio programme, Mann Ki Baat and asked citizens to participate in putting them off use. Approximately 22,000 metric tonnes plastic waste is generated every month by all the food delivery aggregators in India combined. A proactive step by these companies to adopt leaf-based utensils will be a huge step towards decreasing and ultimately, finishing plastic waste. Chitta Ranjan Pani, a tribal livelihood activist told Down To Earth that urban Indian households should discard the usage of their waste-producing plastic utensils and adopt leaf-based cutlery, which is a zero-emission product. A shift to biodegradable cutlery would enrich the soil, reduce carbon footprints, arrest deforestation and hence diminish the impact of climate change. The biggest advantage of using leaf cutlery however, would be the benefits that accrue to India’s tribal populations, who have traditionally engaged in manufacturing it. If the ban, which the pri...

The Costa FLW Series Western Division event presented by Power-Pole on the California Delta had a

The Costa FLW Series Western Division event presented by Power-Pole on the California Delta had a lot of punching as usual, but it was far from the only thing going. Due to the lush grass and windy and touch conditions, vibrating jigs and finesse played a big role as well. Blake Dyer earned the win with a 62-13 total and a handful of baits. Behind him, some pros opted to be “one rod Todd” and others kept their options wide open. 1. Claiming the wire-to-wire victory, Dyer caught  the bulk of his fish on a 1/2-ounce green pumpkin Z-Man ChatterBait Jack Hammer with a Yamamoto Zako. He also caught keepers by punching hyacinth and hydrilla mats with a 1 1/2-ounce Woo! Tungsten weight, Dirty Jigs Punchin’ Skirt in the big Texan color and a Reaction Innovations Spicy Beaver in the tramp stamp color. 2. In second place, Jason Borofka relied on a 1/2-ounce Z-Man ChatterBait Jack Hammer with a Yamamoto Zako trailer and a wacky-rigged 6-inch Yamamoto Senko. 3. Punching was the main deal for third place pro Austin Wilson, who alternated between a Missile Baits D Bomb and a Berkley PowerBait Bunker Hawg. He also caught fish on a 1/2-ounce Z-Man ChatterBait Jack Hammer. 4. A Snag Proof ...

Want to Mount a TV Above a Fireplace? Read This First

Q: We just bought a new 55-inch flat screen TV, and I’d like to hang it over the fireplace in our family room. But my husband’s afraid that heat from the fireplace will mess with it. Is it really a bad idea to mount a TV above a fireplace? A: Talk about a hot-button issue! You’re not the first person to think above the fireplace is an ideal spot for a TV; in fact, home builders often install electrical and cable outlets over the mantle (the horizontal shelf above the fireplace) for just that purpose. But depending on the type of fireplace you have, it could very well be a mistake to hang your new flat screen there—for reasons that go beyond the heat. Keep reading to find out why it might be best to locate your TV elsewhere. Excess heat and electronics don’t mix. A gas fireplace can generate 20,000 to 35,000 British thermal units (BTUs) of heat per hour. To put that into perspective, it takes approximately 15,000 BTUs per hour to heat an entire 1,400 square foot house during a typical New England winter. Heat rises, and even a fireplace with a blower that directs hot air toward the center of the room will still allow some heat to escape upward. This makes the area above the firep...

CIRT, AB InBev take IOT refrigerator solution to Barcelona

Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) South Africa and Consumption Information Real Time (CIRT) will head to Spain to showcase their Internet of things (IOT) solution used by the brewer to capture data about locations and the temperatures of beer refrigerators. This is claimed to be the first time a South African or African project has been selected to be showcased at global IOT event. Both companies will demonstrate the functionalities of the solution and its impact on the SAB business, at the IOT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona, at the end of the month. Ajay Lalu, founder and director of CIRT, says the invitation to showcase the solution highlights that SA is at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR). “Many companies talk about what their IOT solutions could do, but CIRT has actually deployed its Fridgeloc Connected Cooler solution across South Africa with SAB.” “South Africa is one of the first countries in the world where you can open a bank account using a selfie; your insurance company gives you cash back when they monitor your driving behaviour; your alarm company uses IOT to send tamper signals,” says Lalu, demonstrating how advanced SA is in the 4IR.

I moved to Portland in 2004, after my new husband, Din, sat me on the couch

I moved to Portland in 2004, after my new husband, Din, sat me on the couch of our rental home in Los Feliz and said, “I need to be the fuck out of here in a year.” He said Portland wasn’t “the horrible, depressing place” it had been when he grew up there in the ’70s and ’80s, when downtown was full of junkies and the orange-clad followers of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and where no one Din knew was not from Oregon. I told him he might want to work on his sales pitch but, for love, and the opportunity to buy a house we could afford, we made the move. We were not the only ones. Five hundred people a week were moving to Portland back then, lured by various insinuations. For those coming from big cities, where every inch came at a premium, Portland had breathing room. For those from smaller places, Portland seemed a good starter city. My first impressions of Portland were that most people drove a Subaru and everyone wore fleece in a way that was more cute than dorky. People were friendly. They married young. Portland was, in its way, nonthreatening, accommodating, a place to achieve your achievable dreams: I’ll open a bike shop; I’ll open a coffee shop. My husband did the latter. The re...
