USDA Introducing “Biobased” Labels

Filed under: Going Green

USDA Introducing “Biobased” Labels

The USDA is introducing a new label that will help everyone be more environmentally friendly. It will be placed on products like water bottles and grocery bags and inform consumers if the bottles are made of bio-based ingredients that decompose instead of require recycling.

Most of the products that decompose are made of corn instead of the chemicals regular plastic contains.

This is fabulous! We DEFINITELY support this!

New Biodegradable Water Bottle

New Biodegradable Water Bottle

In case you haven’t heard yet, those water bottles you (hopefully don’t) drink out of are EXTREMELY wasteful and bad for the environment!

That’s why the Canadian company Redleaf Water has introduced a fully biodegradable water bottle that will decompose naturally.

While it is possible to recycle normal water bottles research shows that recycling rates are at less than 25%, which means that 75% of water bottles end up in a landfill!

The best option by far is to buy a reusable water bottle and fill it with water before you leave the house, but there are instances where that won’t work — such as emergencies where water is cut off.

The bottom line is this: STOP using plastic water bottles! Take responsiblity for your actions and their impact on the environment!

Sun Chips Pulls 100% Biodegradable Bag For Being Too Loud

Filed under: Food

Sun Chips recently introduced an amazing new improvement to their product — a 100% biodegradable bag (the most environmentally safe chip-bag on the market). There was one minor drawback to the new bag — it was louder than the standard chip bag. This caused some customers to complain and Sun Chips' sales to decrease steadily over the year.

And so, like any giant corporation obsessed with sales numbers, they recalled the new bag for 5 out of 6 of their flavors.

"We chose to respond to the consumer feedback but still want to show that we are committed to this thing," spokesman Chris Kuechenmeister said.

This is so dumb, and the customers are mostly to blame!

We have to make sacrifices to help sustain our environment, and eating your chips out of a bag that’s a little louder than other bags is maybe the easiest sacrifice ever!

Sun Chip’s parent company Frito-Lay is working to make the bag quieter and re-release it on a future date.

We cannot believe how stupid this is! A corporation goes out of its way to make an environmentally friendly product and we reject it for something as simple as it being to loud?! WTF!
