Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Lexicon of sustainability: fallen fruit
Grist - 2/24/2012.
By Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton – People search their cities and neighborhoods for unused or unwanted things: litter, refuse … even food. Fruit is often overlooked (while still on the tree and once its fallen to the ground). The Fallen Fruit Collective began as a Los Angeles-based public art project.
The art of producing sustainable consumer goods: basketry
Low-tech Magazine - 2/24/2012.
By Brian Kaller – The craft of basketry might be one of our species’ most important and diverse technologies, creating homes, boats, animal traps, armour, tools, cages, hats, chariots, weirs, beehives, shelters and furniture, as well as all manner of containers.
EPA sued to ban toxic pesticide and Agent Orange ingredient from household weed products
Treehugger - 2/23/2012.
By Rachel Cernansky – A toxic herbicide, 2,4-D, is a World War II-era weed killer ingredient that is one of the oldest pesticides still legally on the market: it's one of the top three pesticides sold nationwide and the most common pesticide-based weed control product in the home and garden market. Products containing it include Aqua-Kleen, Plantgard, Lawn-Keep and Planotox. It is a known neurotoxin, is toxic to the eye, thyroid, kidney, adrenals, and ovaries/testes according to the EPA and is linked to cancer and other diseases, and was an ingredient in Agent Orange.
