cool Documentary- The Lightbulb Conspiracy

Since the 1920s, leading manufacturers of incandescent light bulbs have conspired to keep the lifetime of their bulbs far below actual technological limitations, ensuring the continuous demand for more bulbs and hence, long-term profit for themselves and employment for their workers. This was the birth of Planned Obsolescence, the cornerstone of the economic growth of the western world in the 20th century.Originally titled Pyramids of Waste, the documentary The Lightbulb Conspiracy addresses the arc and consequences of this policy. You can watch the film in its entirety below...

Food is Medicine

My friend Flux sent me this chart in an email. It lists tons of veggies and their healing/ preventive properties. I'm not a particularly healthy eater, but like many people, I'm looking to do better, especially since we had our daughter. I think this will help me. Hopefully, you'll find it useful too! Feel free to print and share it, or just link to this blog post!

In Pursuit of a Green Planet

I recently got an email from hip hop activist Keith Tucker about a documentary he's working on about the intersection of hip hop culture and green living.
"Pursuit of a Green Planet is a documentary film project that looks at the intersection of Hip Hop and the Green Movement through an exploration of food and health issues in poor and urban communities. The film focuses on Keith Tucker, a regular guy who will become a living experiment as he makes the radical transition from your average American diet and lifestyle to a truly green, organic vegan lifestyle. He will be our guide on a journey of discovery as we learn how our food today actually makes us sick, the role corporations play in determining what we consume, the history of chemicals in our food chain, how our everyday eating habits can become deadly and what we can do to combat these realities. This will be an amazing opportunity for health professionals to study, evaluate and gain knowledge of the human body, particularly when it pertains to eating the various foods in our common American diet.

The Story of Stuff

Hey everybody! I just watched this great documentary called the Story of Stuff about the origins of American Consumerism, and how it effects the planet. Hopefully, you will find it as thought-provoking and entertaining as I did! This video helped remind me why we wanted to run a green company! It's not enough to make money if we make the world a worse place in the process... at least that's how WE see it!
