Damon Wayans Jr. Helps America Recycles Day!

damon wayans jr america recycles day

How fab is this??

That picture (above) is of Damon Wayans Jr. celebrating American Recycles Day… but kicking a field goal through a 21-foot goal post constructed from 125,000 crushed Bud Light cans.

Amazing! We had no idea he could do that!

He did it in the Bud Light Recycling Zone, which is an interactive traveling display that has visited nine cities across the United States this year to encourage and inform NFL fans about the importance of recycling!

We think this is such a great initiative — and we'd love to see more of this kind of work from major companies and celebs alike!

Do you love recycling??

Not as much as will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company do!

We mean, they showed up to the EKOCYCLE Partner Launch — where were you?? Ha!

The whole thing was green-focused… it featured a build out that included sustainable materials throughout the space to offer an inside visual look at the EKOCYCLE story and process, in addition to exclusive artwork created by famed artist Buff Monster (we didn't make that up).

EKOCYCLE is ready to handle more and more brands, which is fab because they already have a huge load

Tornadoes Inspire New Toilet Design

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooWacky, Tacky & TrueEnvironmentScience!

Leave it to Japan to come up with yet ANOTHER crazy toilet idea.

Though this seems much more practical than the toilet motorcycle.

Low flow toilets save so much water per flush but they often leave behind… waste.

Yuck.

So Japanese toilet maker TOTO came up with a Double Cyclone flushing system.

Earth Running Out Of Plants??

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooEnvironment

Plant Room

According to satellite data, the earth produces 53.6 petagrams of plants a year. No, a petagram isn't a letter from Josh Hutcherson, it's about 2.2 trillion lbs.

Of that, humans use about 40%, or about 24 billion tons!

That seems like a lot of salad, but it might not be enough!

Arctic Sea Ice SHATTERS Record! Reaches NEWER Low!

| Filed under: EnvironmentScience!Scary!

DOOM!

We feel like every few weeks we write another story about the Arctic sea ice reaching some new historic low.

But most researchers didn't expect it to keep getting worse.

It's literally almost fall and the ice is still receding.

In the video, the black represents what the ice levels usually are, and the white ice you can see represents what actually happened this summer.

New data says the ice crushed the record it just set of only 1.58M square miles. It's now down to the new record of 1.32M square miles of ice.

Check out the video (above) to see how much less that is than average.
