May Non Toxic News Round Up: New York Passes Plastic Bag Fee, China Takes Climate Change Super Seriously, & More!

Another month has passed and with it more strides to a non toxic future. Countries are making ambitious goals to lessen their fossil fuel use, and even their meat consumption. Consumers are demanding more and more that their food and personal care be labeled in a way that is transparent. They simply want to know what is in the stuff their putting in and on their body. That's not too much to ask, right? non toxic news round up RIGHT! So here are some wins and steps forward that happened in May!

New York City Passes 5 Cent Bag Fee

yes gif NY is trying to give plastic the boot and to help move the process along they have passed a fee for plastic and paper bags. The goal is to lower the amount of bags that end up in the waste stream. Some citizens are irritated at the change, but the city thinks it's necessary to encourage people to bring their own bags. Considering they send about 10 billion single use plastic bags to the landfill every year.

Nothing Smart About the New "Smart Label" for Food

wait a minute The Grocery Manufacturers Association proposed a new label in place of the mandatory GMO label disclosure that consumers are demanding. The label has missed the mark with some serious obstacles to helping people know what's in their food. EWG has the run down of why this label isn't that smart.

New Toxic Substances Control Act Falls Short Of Protecting Americans

really Congress has revised the Toxic Substances Control Act, TSCA, but Environmental Working Group says it isn't enough. In fact, many people are saying the same thing. The new reform is still doing more for the chemical industry than it is to protect Americans from hazardous chemicals. Is it better than the current law? Yes, but that's a low bar. Check out the details.

China Encourages Their Population To Eat Less Meat...For Their Health

0mKXcg1 The U.S. released their dietary recommendations last year and there was one element that seemed to be missing. Even with ample expert opinion and evidence that eating less meat is better for people and the planet, there was no suggestion to consume less of it. China just released their new dietary guidelines and said their citizens should cut their red meat intake by half. They've decided that the evidence is too strong and the change will help the health of Chinese people and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We hope other countries will follow their non toxic example!

EWG Releases Their New Safe Sunscreen Guide

thank you gif Summer is almost here and EWG is making sun safety easy. They have released their new safe sunscreen guide and all the tips you need to keep your skin from getting lasting sun damage. EWG's Sun Safety campaign brings awareness to the leading cancer in the U.S.: Skin Cancer.

China Calls for 23% Forest Cover by 2020

tumblr_o14ztbIaHq1qbtq0vo1_500 China is coming up the ranks when it comes to fighting climate change. Their new eco-civilization plan is focusing on leaving a better biosphere for the future generations. They want to make conscious efforts to live more in harmony with nature. Other goals for 2020 are cutting water consumption by 23%, energy consumption by 15%, and preserving at least 35% of the natural shorelines.

Non Toxic Summer Picnic Picks Guide

NTR-picnicparty_blog-1 Being cooped up inside is such a drag! Now that summer is here I’m ready to adventure outside to parks and my friends’ backyards for some picnic fun. At first, planning a picnic can be kind of tricky. I need an easy way to transport everything from my house and want my food to stay fresh. On top of that, I don’t want to pollute my surroundings and body with toxic waste. That’s a lot to think about! Picnics can turn into plastic city if you aren’t careful. Plastic is laced with toxic chemicals that leach into liquids and food. One of those chemicals, Bisphenol-A (BPA), is linked to increased breast cancer cell growth. Using reusable and BPA-free products decreases your risk. Non Toxic Revolution Picnic Party Guide Ditch the toxins and use these simple alternatives for hosting a non-toxic picnic! Plastic Sucks! reusable cups and straws: Stainless steel and BPA-free bottles and cups, found at Klean Kanteen, keep toxins out of your beverage of choice. Say no to disposable plastic straws and choose ones made of glass. Plastic Sucks! reusable utensils, dishes and napkins: Eat with bamboo or stainless steel forks, spoons and knives. Bring dishes from your home or buy biodegradable plates. Instead of paper napkins use cloth! Bandanas make the perfect napkin and can double as a decoration. A little more cleanup time is way less harmful than dumping a bunch of plastic back into the world. Choose glass or BPA-free containers: When you’re out and about in the sun, you don’t want your healthy eats and drinks to have BPA silently leaching into it! Find a glass pitcher with a secure lid so you can set it down on the ground or picnic table without worrying about any spillage. Pack your food in glass or ceramic containers. If for some reason you’d rather use plastic, at least find a brand that uses BPA-free materials. Maybe you plan on picking up a pre-made meal from a restaurant or grocery store. Take your own containers to avoid their plastic and Styrofoam. Styrofoam is made with a chemical called styrene, which the EPA classifies as a suspected carcinogen and endocrine disrupter. Fruit Skewers Healthy Eats: Skip fatty mayo-based dips, greasy deep fried chicken and hot dogs with sodium nitrate (it’s linked to an increased risk of cancer). Opt instead for homemade guacamole and healthy sandwiches with plenty of organic veggies. Avoid plastic Ziploc bags and use these reusable Wrap-N-Mat bags. Sweet Tooth Alternatives: Chocolate and other sweet treats are my weakness. When I go out to eat, I check the dessert situation first and THEN decide how much of my main course I’ll eat. But let's be real, added sugar isn't that great for us. Sugar has been linked to many health problems, which means I have to be extra careful about what I’m putting into my body. Instead of a sugary cake, brownies and cookies, stick with fruit! Fourth of July Inspired Fruit Skewers What you need: 1 carton of strawberries 1 carton of blueberries 5 bananas Bamboo skewers DIRECTIONS Wash the strawberries and blueberries. Slice strawberries into fourths and bananas into ½ inch or 1 inch rounds. Thread fruit onto skewers any way you desire. (In the photo: Alternate between bananas and strawberries first. Thread blueberries on top.) You can display them in glass mason jars to keep them upright like a bouquet. Non Toxic Sunscreen: Appreciating the summer sunshine is one of the best parts about having a picnic. The sun produces Vitamin D in your body, which reduces the risk of breast, colon and ovarian cancers. You don’t want to overdo it though. It’s important to use a non-toxic sunscreen to prevent skin damage. Some brands use ingredients that disrupt hormones and cause skin allergies. To learn which sunscreen is safe to use, check out our Toxic VS. Epic Sunscreen Guide that we partnered with Environmental Working Group (EWG) on.
