Disease Proof

Great Shots from TreeHugger!

TreeHugger’s rocking some awesome veggie-friendly pictures, like this one about gardening. Take a look:

Roger Doiron, the director of Kitchen Gardeners International, has a great suggestion: "We give tax breaks to people to encourage them to put hybrid cars in their garages and solar panels on their roofs, so why not a tax break to encourage environmentally friendly and healthy food production?" He likened his plan to deducting the square footage of a home office: the bigger your garden, the better the tax break.
Supermarket owners know, customers are freaked out by meat recalls—the solution? Print out a sign. Check it out:

(via The New York Times)
We already know that meat has a huge carbon footprint, but the United States Olympic Committee is making it worse by shipping 25,000 pounds of Tyson Foods meat to Beijing for the athletes to eat, suggesting that Chinese standards applied to meat are lower than in the USA. A caterer describes Chinese chicken: “We had it tested and it was so full of steroids that we never could have given it to athletes. They all would have tested positive.”

I love these things. If I didn’t live in a rinky-dinky apartment, I’d get one. Introducing the AeroGarden:

Though gardening season is just about upon us, if you don't have a plot or a green thumb, and prefer the idea of growing with air in your kitchen to getting dirt under your fingernails, then perhaps the AeroGarden is for you; you may recall we covered it when it first became available a few years back. But how do you substitute your own seeds? Which model grows the best tomatoes? Can anyone recommend the upgrade package?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, by my calculation, we’ve got 3,000 words—right?
