The latest Ecoholic offers up a collage of goodies. We kick things off with a lipstick/gloss product testing guide, prompted by a recent study on heavy metals in lip products. Then we circle back to #betterbacktoschool brigade issues, in week 3 of our collaboration with the David Suzuki Foundation’s Queen of Green Tovah Paglaro.
This week’s brigade theme is detoxing schools, so I interviewed one of the leading Canadian organizations working to get a major form of toxins – junk food – out of school cafeterias and student lunches. They’re also bringing nature into schools and students into nature by getting them to role up their sleeves and grow their own veggies. Actually, the farmers’ market near me in Toronto even has a FoodShare School Grown veggie tent where you can buy produce straight from students. Pretty awesome! Definitely inspired and hopefully inspiring for schools across the country.
You can read all about it, as well as our Greenwash of the Week (which just so happens to be a school binder) in the latest issue of NOW.
