El Lay BANS Plastic Bags!

Filed under: PolitikGoing GreenEnvironment

LA Bag BAn

You feel that, environment??

That's the feeling you get when a huge city just straight up BANS the use of plastic bags!

L.A. loves you!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and an array of environmental groups pleaded with the City Council to vote with the environment in mind — and it worked. They voted 13 to 1 to phase out plastic bags over the next 12 months at an estimated 7,500 stores!

For the city, that means you should be stockpiling those cloth-reusable bags: there will be a four-month environmental review of the bag ban, and then an ordinance putting it into effect. Larger stores are then given six months to stop using plastic bags and smaller stores/markets will be put on a 12-month phase-out period.

Plus, you don't want to have to pay for paper bags, do you? Because retailers would be required to charge 10 cents per bag starting one year after plastic bag ban starts.

In other words, you have about 2 years to build a nice little collection of world-conscious reusable bags before they make you pay!

Of course, we totally feel for those earning a living for their families in the plastic bag industry — this can't be a very good sign.

Though, they do have some buffer to start looking for jobs if they think that they're in danger!

We think this is fab for the world, and should follow in the footsteps of San Jose, San Francisco, Long Beach, L.A., and dozens of other municipalities!

Ben & Jerry's Thieves Beware!!

Filed under: Silly!Etc.Food

Ben J Lock

We told you there'd be a solution to our Ben & Jerry's problem!

So what was the one thing keeping B&J from being absolutely perfect?

Jerks tryin' to steal it from us! We're talkin' family, friends — it doesn't matter! It's ours!

Well, we don't have to worry anymore: The Euphori-Lock is here!

Here's what the company said:

"This delightfully tongue-in-cheek concept actually came from one of our customers, who suggested we start selling our ice cream in stainless steel containers with little padlocks on them.”

LOLz! How fun!

The contraption is a two-part plastic security ring that slips around your pint’s upper lid. All you have to do is remember your code when you want to dig in!

Perfect! Now if we could just remember our code… ha!

3D printing is literally the future.

A young child wants nothing but the new popular toy car or doll, or more likely video game system or something, and it's Christmas morning and the stores were sold out.

Oh no! But wait… Good thing you have your 3D printer.

Of all the stars at the 98th Annual White House Correspondents Association dinner last Saturday, there were two stars in particular that were the BIGGEST.

They were Rosario Dawson's boobs! And they were trying their hardest to escape her emerald, silk gown.

As we mentioned, she was looking a little, um, perky, but now there's word that she may have had a boob job!

Scientists Have MASSIVELY Underestimated The Amount Of Plastic Pollution In The Ocean

Oceaning garbage

Continent Sized Garbage Island Floating Off California Coast!

garbe-gpile-ocean.jpg

There are two patches of garbage in the ocean that together are twice as large as the continental United States.

That is disgusting.

We had no idea but apparently there is a "plastic soup" of garbage drifting in a "trash vortex" of ocean currents in the northern pacific about 500 nautical miles off the Californian coast.

It's not like it's literally a giant garbage island you could walk on, but a huge mass of chemical sludge and broken down polymers with the occasional lego piece, bottle or kayak. No joke.

A former sailor came across the patch by chance while he was sailing from Hawaii to Los Angeles.

He found himself surrounded by garbage every day. He said:

"Every time I came on deck, there was trash floating by. How could we have fouled such a huge area? How could this go on for a week?"

Scientists have been looking into cleaning up the patch for a while but it's tough to estimate truly how big it is and to find a good way to scoop up all those plastics.

Maybe everybody can just stop polluting!!

Stop growing the great garbage patch!
